Apollo's Info...

I am up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Apollo's Story...
Apollo is a 3 year old, male, white/blue brindle, American Bulldog/Pit bull mix. Apollo came to us as a stray so we don't have a whole lot of history on him. He is a fairly large boy that weighs in around 65-70lbs. He is extremely strong and doesn't understand how big he is so a home with older children (8yrs+) would be ideal. He has not tested well with other dogs or cats so it's in his best interest to be the only pet in the home. Apollo needs some basic training but with a patient hand he has already learned to sit on command. He loves squeaky toys and will work hard for them. He has a good amount of energy and would make a great hiking buddy. Apollo loves everyone he meets so if he sounds right for your family please come by the shelter and visit him today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Apollo, a Colonial Heights American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog for sale in Colonial Heights, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Colonial Heights.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Colonial Heights already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Colonial Heights breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Colonial Heights paves the way for another one to be saved.
