Hi. My name is Axel and I am a male black and tan shepherd mix. I’m about two years old and have medium long hair, kind of like a collie. My dark colors are very pretty and muted. I have a lot of energy because I am young but I obey pretty well and walk nicely on a leash. I do know how to sit and I learn quickly. I’m very friendly and lovable and would be a very nice addition to a family. Please come in and see me. My docket number is BIS16-000216, at the St. Joseph County Animal Control Shelter located at 652 E. Main St., Centreville, MI. Animal Control is open Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Saturday (adoptions only) from 9:00 – 12:00. Their phone number is 269-467-6475. Please visit the Animal Rescue Fund website at www.arfund.org to see more adoptable pets. Also, to see more adoptable animals at SJC Animal Control, to go www.petfinder.com.
