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.

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.
