Handler PS McGinn

Axel was born in the south of England, where he and his siblings found themselves in a rehoming centre.

Fortunately, Axel and his siblings were procured by the MoD Police and entered their Force Puppy Programme at the slightly later age of 15 weeks.

Axel excelled in his police dog role and was trained using Hydration Intensified Tracking Training methods (HITT). He was an outstanding tracker dog.

He was trained and handled by PS Charlie McGinn for the duration of his police service.

Sadly, he was put to sleep on 1st March 2019 due to progressive Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). His handler said “he was a real character, his floppy ear gave him the cute factor and his eyes had a burning intensity. He was a shining star, keep on shining my boy”.
