We received Axel's postings from several different sources. Trouble is, this is a shelter we don't have ready access to.

Axel's Shelter Video

We didn't think we were going to be able to help this boy; that is, until January 11th, when we received an email from our facebook friend, Kathy J: "Got him! Now we know how to get IVHS dogs. ... More to follow!"

Kathy updated us later on the same evening to let us know that Axel had been pulled and was safely at Crossroads awaiting transport to Phoenix. Our thanks go out to Kevin who picked up Axel at the shelter and brought him to Crossroads.

UPDATE 1/13: Thanks to prior adopters Gina and Rod (who adopted Toni from us in 2006), Axel will be making his way to Phoenix in the luxury of their motorhome on Sunday. Gina has promised us photos of the transport, but she has NOT promised she won't fall in love with him on the trip home!

Adoption fee to be determined.
