I adopted Axl (formerly Deacon) in February 2016, soon after his left front leg was amputated. He was a bit shy and disoriented at first, but Axl has turned out to be the best dog buddy I could ever imagine. We go hiking, running, and camping together, and he LOVES the beach. He is totally unfazed by the missing leg and is the fastest dog at the dog park. He is also an excellent cuddler. Thank you to the SF SPCA for taking such good care of him and helping bring him into my life. I had never had a dog before, and this little guy has taught me so much about resilience and loving life no matter what it throws at you.
