11/7/16-Axl has been with us 1 month today, and we can't believe how much improvement he has made. He is doing wonderful on a leash, where as before he tried to wiggle right out of his collar. He is learning to really calm down and not jump on visitors, and is much more willingly going into his crate. He did wonderful on Halloween with the commotion of kids and us going in and out of doors.
He is getting more comfortable with playing with toys, and he loves his tennis ball ​launcher! Axl is a big cuddler and just wants to be loved on by anyone around him!


10/18/16 Axl has really settled into our home with his two "foster brothers" by his side. He absolutely adores them. At first, Axl was very high strung with our younger boxer but now has learned how to interact more calmly with them as a pack. He knows that he gets spoiled with a little wet food in his kibble for dinner and waits patiently (and slobbery) for a small spoonful of peanut butter before bed. We have been working on manners and he has done wonderful with coming when called and going into his crate without an issue. He loves to play ball and run in the backyard. If you're looking to be greeted with a wiggly nub and unconditional love, Axl is your man!

10/11/16- Here is a little more background information on Axl.  He is
an owner surrender that lived with 6 and 11 year old kids and was
great with them. They sadly decided to give him up as they live in a
very busy neighborhood where the other kids come over to play all the
time and Axl just would get too excited, jumpy and mouthy when over
stimulated.  He was never aggressive, just typical boxer craziness
when it is not trained out of them.  His family was worried he would
accidentally knock over or nip the other kids in play and he would
wrongly be labeled a bad dog.

10/9/16-Axl has been with us just about 3 days now and is making himself right at home. He sits for his food, listens very well & still no accidents in the house. He greets us with boxer wiggles and always finds a way to nuzzle into you for cuddles. He has interacted with our neighbors children through the fence and was wonderful with them, and also was great with a visitor at our home.

10/7/16 Axl came to our home last night and has done very well so far. He's just the sweetest big guy who really does not realize his size which is why we are not confident in suggesting kids under 4 at this time. He is full of boxer energy, wiggles and kisses.
He has slowly met our two other boxers with absolutely no issues at all. In fact, I believe he would do best in a home WITH another dog of similar size because he just wants to play.
Axl knows sit, shake and lay down, and we will be working on coming when called as right now he does think this is a game of chase. So far no accidents in the house!
We will update as we get to know this sweet boy more!
