Birth Year: 2008
Axel moved to Cornell from Michigan along with Guru, Duke, Trapper, Maggie, and Piston. He is an energetic, happy guy who fit right into another group we had from Alaska. He goes out to playtime with Foam, Avalanche, Barley, Ale, Pilot, and Logger. Axel has made great improvements on the treadmill, and is now doing great on it!
Before joining our team, Axel was a mid distance sled dog. He and his team trained by going on 8 to 10 mile runs, but their competition runs were anywhere from 40 to 300 miles long! Axel was not a leader, but he performed strongly as a wheel dog.
