So I have had Apollo for almost TWO months now. This is pure craziness! I really thought he would be adopted in just a couple weeks, especially after ALL of the inquiries we got when he was originally posted. But unfortunately, nothing has worked out for him….so now, I am starting the Operation Adopt Apollo, and I need your help!
Apollo came from the Wakulla shelter as a very young pup. He was on the urgent list, and luckily I was able to take him in as a foster, so Last Hope Rescue saved him. He is a TOTAL love bug! He always wants to be cuddling in my lap, and loves to play with the human kiddo. Apollo gets along great with dogs, and cats too! He is besties with Oscar, and they love to chase each other, play ball, and chew on their bones together!
Apollo is definitely a Boxer…not sure what else he is mixed with. He has long lanky legs, but small feet. I wouldn’t expect him to get much bigger than maybe 40 or 50 lbs, at the most. He is almost potty trained, with only a few pee accidents here & there. He is fully crate trained, and that is where he eats & sleeps. Apollo knows “sit”, “kennel”, & “treat”, and now we are working on “off” & “down”! He is very treat motivated, and smart, so he is easy to train!
Apollo loves to be outside, running and playing with the dogs, and finding sticks to chew on! He also very much enjoys a kiddie pool, especially if the other dogs are playing in it too!
Apollo seriously loves to watch the TV! It is the weirdest thing, but he will sit on the couch with you, staring at the TV. It even keeps him from falling asleep sometimes, because he is just too interested in whatever he is seeing or hearing! He’s such a goofy pup!
You can see more pictures of Apollo here, on the Tails of a Foster Mom Facebook Page!
Apollo is around 5 months old, up to date on vaccines, and micro-chipped. He is currently located in Tallahassee, FL, and the adoption fee is $125. Transport can be arranged within the state of Florida. If he is adopted prior to 6 months old, the adopter is responsible for the neuter surgery, and Last Hope Rescue will refund $50 of the adoption fee. Adopters must be 21 yrs or older.
Apollo’s perfect forever home would be with an active person. Someone who has another dog as a companion, or a family with young children. He would make a great running partner, and will excel in training classes.
So, this is where YOU come in! Please share this post, in hopes of finding Apollo the family he deserves. While we love him very much, I hate to see him growing up in a temporary home. He is such a wonderful dog, and any family would be lucky to have him! Please share on Facebook, Twitter, email, re-blog, etc. Even if you are not in Florida, or are not interested in adopting, just share! You never know who might have a spot in their heart for this little guy! And if you know or hear of anyone being interested in Apollo, please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Last Hope Rescue at LastHopeRescueFL@gmail.com.
Apollo says, “Thank you for helping me find a FUR ever home!!!”
