The very social Axl

Axl the Spoodle (cocker spaniel and poodle) has quickly established his social network in the past few months of living in Docklands.

Axl’s owner Carlos Matte said he was impressed by young Axl’s social skills, which might have also been reinforced by Axl’s puppy eyes.

Axl runs up to greet everyone he sees and is pleased to always get some hugs and kisses in return for his enthusiasm.

Carlos said their daily walks often had to be extended because Axl was so busy meeting everyone and would not leave until he was absolutely exhausted.

“Sometimes I would let Axl run up and down the stairs with me just to wear him out so he can have a good sleep at home,” he said.

However, it seems Axl’s outstanding social skills only apply to humans, as he is often very timid around other dogs.

“He’s actually scared of other dogs, but he loves people,” Carlos said.

Apart from always wanting to make new friends, Axl is also very smart for his young age.

“He has learned how to sit and he also sits before we cross the road. He learned that trick very quickly,” Carlos said.

But when Carlos instructed Axl to perform the trick during the interview, he was busy meeting other people.
