Axel is a joy to have around.  He enjoys playing ball with his humans, loves to rummage through the toy box and take out each toy.  He loves his long walks but is most favorite thing to do is to run in his fenced yard hunting.  No squirrels, rabbits or chipmunks are safe when he is around. When I am at work he visits a local kennel where he has two huge fields to run and chase in.  After playing all day, he loves to snuggle up on the couch, lay his head on my lap and watch television (he’s not particular about the shows either!)
He loves going for car rides and is a good traveler.  He also enjoys attending obedience class and is quite good at sit stay, down and walking on lead. He enjoys his walks and can go for two miles with no problems. He is well behaved when he gets enough exercise in a day.
One thing he doesn't like is going to the vet.  He needs to be muzzled as he does not like to be restrained.  He also does not like having his nails done but is good about the grooming and bathing.  Axel does not respond well to physical correction or force. He needs someone who will be consistent with positive training and give him a routine he can follow.  He has flourished in the last two months with the change in his life.
He is crate trained, although doesn’t need to be in one as he has excellent house manners.  His ideal home would be someone who understands Terriers, will continue and be consistent with commands, have a fenced in yard to run, no children (he does not tolerate them) and would be ok with a female dog but no males.  He is up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, healthy and at a good weight.
