Hey everyone, my name is Axel. I am a 4-year-old boy, and I had to say goodbye to my owner, since he was moving and I couldn't go with him. It was very hard for me to say goodbye since my owner and I have done a lot - we’ve had an awesome time playing in the backcountry. I’ve learned how to skijor, and backpack, and I’ve been a constant companion for him. I bond very tightly with my favorite person, and can be a little protective of them. My owner knew how to carefully introduce me to people - slow and easy is the key. Since I have been in boarding, I've been a very good boy and I get along great with the handlers here. I'm also very friendly with other people I've met and like being petted.
I used to live with another large dog, but I'm a little reactive when I see dogs and will need careful, slow introductions. I think I'd rather live with a large, mellow female dog or would be happy as the only pet. And of course, I have that usual malamute prey drive, so no small animals in the household please.
I am very obedient, I try so hard to please my favorite person. I easily learned the boundaries in my previous home - and am very smart. I get walked by the Moonsong volunteers here, but I'd sure like a lot more activity - it's pretty boring hanging out in this kennel. I know they will keep me safe until the right family or person comes along. Might that be you?
Axel is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and would benefit from an active home.
