Hi! I’m Axel. I’m a healthy 3 year old black and tan boy GSD and I’m looking for some new digs. I’m a super friendly guy and like people a lot. My manners are excellent too.  I currently live with 2 young kids
I like dogs and know how to meet them politely.  Small barky dogs don’t even bother me.
I currently live with Oso who is also looking for a new home and our friends at BAGSR are helping both of us.
I’ve lived next door to cats and they really kind of bug me. So I would probably do better in a home without cats.
I know basic obedience but you know us GSDs…..always willing to learn more. 
I am playful so I'm hoping to find a family who likes to play too.  I’m also food motivated so teaching me new things won’t be hard at all.  Oh...and I like to go for car rides.
I’m a typical GDS-when I am outside; I alarm bark when I hear delivery trucks or strange sounds. But I don’t bark just to bark.
One thing you should know about me and Oso is that we currently live outside so we’ll need to be monitored closely while we learn our indoor manners. We are looking for someone to teach us the rules of inside living. We hear that living indoors is MAGNIFICENT!  I’ll need some help with housebreaking so I really hope that’s not a deal breaker.
I hope I sound like a nice addition for your family. I can’t wait to find a new family to love.
I’ll be waiting in San Jose.
Note: Oso and Axel can be adopted separately, but being adopted together would be wonderful.
