Apollo was rescued one rainy night about a week ago tied to a pole in a remote area. Our household has 2 chronically I’ll people who struggle every day and an 82 year old mom who has had a stroke. We love Apollo dearly already but know we would not be doing right by him by keeping him. He needs a healthier owner that can do more things with him. He deserves the best because he is the best as nd with minimal work will be even more incredible!! We have him scheduled on 2/28/20 to have him neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and heartworm tested so he will go to his new home in optimal condition.
I believe he needs a home with an active person that will enjoy spending time with him…going hiking, playing frisbee, ball, and rope toy. I think he would enjoy camping and maybe even swimming. He just wants to be with his person. After he plays, he foes like yo just chill in the house. I think he would be a good protector for a young woman. I also think he would love to have another big dog as a friend.
I require an adoption application and contract to be signed. I will also be doing a home inspection. If you have a pet already it previous pets, I will be checking with your vet regarding care. The $50 rehoming fee will be donated to a Texas rescue organization.
Apollo is Available for Adoption

Hi! My name is Apollo. I love to play frisbee, fetch the ball, and play with any other toys you might have! I think I could totally win an agility contest! I am such a sweet, smart boy. I learn commands quickly. I need a little more training with walking on a leash but I promise I can be taught. I am potty trained and very good in the house. I love playing with my rescuer’s dog! I love to be engaged and active but I also know how to be calm in the house. I would rather not be left alone for long periods of time, as I love to be with people. I also am not a fan of being confined. My rescuer says I am amazing and will make the right person an amazing lifelong companion! I would love an active person that will make me their world! Oh, I also am such a good boy at bathtime!!
