APOLLO AD 05-20-17


ADOPTED ON 05-20-17: Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.

This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.

Apollo was in a high kill shelter, emaciated, frightened, depressed but had a strong will to live. As a German shepherd, the will to live opens most doors allowing us to redevelop its trust and its ability to love humans. In Apollo’s case his resurrection has been a beautiful journey of uncovering a dog so special in his depth of love, his amazing intelligence and his willingness to overcome the past makes him stand out from all the rest. He will be your guardian, your clown, your companion, your lap dog and your strength, never misunderstanding your needs, all the while totally dedicated to you and your well-being.

Apollo has a little more growing to do but he is athletic and graceful, with a strong sense of self and self-confidence. As far as other dogs he very well socialized. He is a buddy, likes going on long walks and gets along with his kennel mates. He is very energetic, wants to please and love to play with toys.  Without a doubt, he is very handsome, and turns heads as he proudly walks by.  He loves attention, affection and adores humans.

Are you a family that considers your dog to be a “family member”?  Apollo is now ready to share his heart and soul with the right family who can cherish him.  Ideally, while we can’t recast Apollo’s history, we can create his future and that’s what our rescue focuses on doing: making the most of the dogs attributes and placing him in an ideal home.  It’s why we rescue — to make a difference and collaborate with adopters who are equally guided by the same motivation to make a difference in a deserving dog’s life. Apollo truly is so deserving of a good and wonderful life- just like him.


RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
