Pup Axel has been in the community for 10 years he started out as a boy when he was 18 up in Pennsylvania . Since then he moved to Texas and has experienced and grown a temendous amount thanks to the wonderful Texas community and come to be the pup he is today . He strongly encourages educational improvement and support whenever possible in the leather and link community and is always willing to help raise or donate funds to go to charities .As a pup he loves being playful and mischevious but knows that it's not all fun and games . He knows that hard work,loyalty and integrity and dedication are the corner stones of being a part of this community and will help shape the future of the community as long as people are active and engaging . When he isn't helping out with fundraisers or educational support he loves to be hanging out with friends and family. Weather that be at the Dallas Eagle for drinks and fun or out with movies and dinner or just a good conversation at home with a glass of wine with good company . He loves spending time with his two pawsome dogs Godiva and Ferraro who are like his kids and are spoiled beyond words. Other wise you can find this pup at home curled up on the couch with a book and some wine or watching nature documentaries or golden girls , or in the kitchen whipping up some awesome food and of course a cheesecake to eat with the golden girls ( cause hey it's not golden girls without the cheesecake right ). He is looking forward to the future and to continuing to be able to fundraise and educate and watch the community grow and flourish.
