I found out today that my neighbor's dog Axel was PTS by one of the area animal shelters. He disappeared not quite 2 weeks ago after the hot air balloon landed in my neighbor's field. He must have been spooked. Anyhow my neighbor's girlfriend had been looking for him. He was an 11 yr old Giant Malmute that was starting to have some health problems. His owner did not take the best of care of him-his girlfriend would have liked to do more but it wasn't her dog. Anyhow the animal shelter PTS after 7 days (no tags) because he was "aggressive" to some of the other dogs. She found out the day after he was PTS. This shelter IMO puts an aggressive tag on many pets. Axel had some difficulty walking and a big sore on one of his paws and in all the time I knew him he wasn't aggressive to me my pets, his owners. He liked to follow me around the yard. RIP Axel I hope you have a wonderful time at the bridge.
