Meet Axel!!! This poor boy was brought in by his owner. As you can see this poor boy has not been taken care to the fullest. His teeth are grinded down and or missing one, he has lived outside most of his life with another dog. He was very sad when his people just left him at the shelter. He became URGENT there, as he is a black dog!! Most of you might know, black dog syndrome is one of the top reason for a dog like him to be euthanized. Fetching Hearts does not discriminate!! We took him into our rescue because he just has that awesome personality that matches his smile!! Axel, is a good boy who would love to go for walks and also hang out when its time to. Let's find this boy a home where he can have a happy, loving and comfortable bed waiting for him. We need to show him that he will know long have to live outside in the cold or heat. He deserves nothing but the best going forward! If you want a love bug, Axel is your guy!! If you would like more information on Axel, please contact Shari at

Unless otherwise indicated, all dogs adopted through Fetching Hearts have received the following before being available for adoption:
  • Thorough veterinary examination


  • All routine annual vaccinations, including Rabies, DHLPP, Bordatella (Kennel Cough), Heartworm Test, Fecal Test, Deworming, Microchip, Flea and Tick Prevention and Heartworm Prevention.

All dogs are quarantined for two weeks outside of the shelter (puppies four weeks) to ensure they don't break with disease.

Vetting Note:
Fetching Hearts Rescue completely vets our dogs thoroughly to the best of our knowledge based on communication with our Southern Vets. If anything is brought to our attention, we treat the dog. After adopting the dog, you will be responsible for following up with all vetting going forward.

Heartworm Note:

Dogs who were treated for Heartworm can test positive up to 4-6 months after last treatment. All dogs are immediately put on Heartguard/Ivermectin following the treatment to kill the Heartworm larvae. All dogs should be re-tested after 5-6 months from the last Heartworm treatment.
