If you could use a little more love in your home this holiday season, Axel might be the perfect addition to your family!

This week's virtual Furry Friday pup is Axel, a young Pit Bull, Australian Cattle Dog, Blue Heeler mix. He's currently available for adoption at Last Hope Animal Rescue in Cedar Rapids. Their website describes him as a "spitfire" that loves to play, but he's also very smart and very sweet! Axel is mostly black in color, but he's got a little white and gray on his belly and one of this front paws. Just look at this sweet little guy!

Axel loves people and does well with children over the age of 12, but he needs to be in a home where he's the only pet. He doesn't do well with cats or other dogs. He is both potty trained and kennel trained, but he would work best with a more experienced dog owner. The website says:

"Axel will need a dog savvy owner who can continue to work with him. He’s super smart and loves to please, but needs guidance as he is still an adolescent."
