Axle is a handsome guy who was transferred from a local city shelter to Operation Kindness in hopes of finding a loving home. He is a very friendly boy and loves his walks. He will make a wonderful friend and companion for an adult household. He will have to remain strictly an indoor pet, especially during the summer months. If you’re into the bully breed and have a working knowledge of what keeping one of these guys healthy and happy means, come meet Axle and show him what a loving forever home should be.
