Axel was born January 13, 2006. This was the EXACT day that I adopted my first greyhound Jayden (a beautiful red female). I had no idea at the time, that Axel would eventually come to be with me. I don't believe in coincidence.
Having always wanted to adopt a retired racer, I prayed that God would send me the one for me. On January 13, 2006, I adopted my sweet Jayden.
Jayden passed away very sudden, and unexpectedly on December 29, 2008. It was a terrible shock to me! I didn't know which way to turn.
A lovely white and fawn female greyhound named Lily, came to me in February of 2010. She was offered to me, since she wasn't working out in another home. I adopted her, and she brought so much joy into my life.
In August of 2010, a handsome black greyhound named Axel needed a foster home. He was another greyhound that wasn't working out where be was living. He came to stay with us as a foster greyhound. Axel and Lily bonded instantly! .
Soon thereafter, I adopted him. The three of us were always together. Axel became very protective of his girl Lily.
Sadly, on October 23, 2013, Lily lost her battle with cancer. Both Axel and I were heartbroken! Axel was grieving, and became very attached and protective of me. We were inseparable.
On October 24, 2016. Axel lost his own battle with cancer. My heart remains broken, but I know he's always with me!
His generous spirit has given me the inspiration to foster other retired greyhounds. Thank you Axel, for allowing me to care for you! I love you!
