No Kill Manatee County is hosting a celebration this week as Axel, the dog who was hit in the head and left wandering with a gaping injury,goes to his foster home.
No Kill Manatee is inviting the community to come out and say so long to Axel. He will leave his friends at Beach Veterinary Clinic on Jan. 9, where he has convalesced since he was found with his injury in November. From there he will make a stop at Lucky Dog Restaurant where owners and friends put together a Facebook Page for Axel.
Then they will head to Manatee County Animal Services, 305 25th St. W., Palmetto, where Axel will meet his new foster mom, trainer Trisha Robinson of Dawg Phonics. Axel will also will meet his fans and be reunited with Animal Services officer Steve Bell, who rescued him and took him straight to Beach Vet.
The public will be invited to send him off in style.
No Kill Manatee recognizes Officer Steve Bell who found Axel, Beach Veterinary Clinic who saved Axel’s life and cared for him since his trauma last November. The organization also thanks Tricia Robinson of Dawg Phonics for offering to foster Axel and work with him on basic training.
Robinson is excited to work with Axel and plans to post videos of his training on her web site to allow fans to keep up with his progress. The videos will also be posted on Axel’s Angel facebook page.
Robinson is open to people contacting her about Axel's progress and to come see and photograph him while she is fostering him.
