Apollo 2 has been adopted! 01-06-2015

Male Pit Bull Terrier about 3-5 years old. Good with kids. Homes with no other dogs.

Sometimes we get painfully sad calls that are hard to digest- calls that rock us to the core. Before they finish telling the story, we already know that we have to help.

We received such a call about Apollo. A woman had passed away in her home, which she shared with her dog, Apollo. For two days he never left her side, hoping she would wake up. His mom had rescued him from a county shelter and he wasn't going to leave her, no matter what. When the police came, he was taken to the shelter, tail tucked between his legs, confused and scared. We rescued Apollo and he's now looking for a family that will show him love and understanding.

Around 3 years old, this gorgeous boy is young, 100% potty trained and good with children. Apollo needs a strong and confident leader, so he can relax and just enjoy being a dog. He promises to thank you with his huge pittie smile and tons of kisses!

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
