Apollo is a short dog with a big personality! He is very smart and friendly with new people, and he will catch everyone's eye with his unique good looks and quirky charm. He loves playing fetch and also sniffing the smells. Although he is sociable, he is also an independent character and likes to be able to do his own thing. Apollo gets along with some dogs, but he would prefer to be the only pet in his home. He likes to take ownership of his space! We feel he will do best in an active, adult-only household where he can get plenty of love, exercise, and structure. Apollo has an active training plan, and our behavior team will work with you to facilitate his smooth transition into your home. For this reason, Apollo must be adopted within 40 minutes of the Brother Wolf Adoption Center. If you are looking for a smart, fun, independent companion, come meet Apollo today, or email for more information about this special dog. He currently resides in a loving foster home.

All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.

Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is known for their excellence in matching people with the best dog or cat that would suit their lifestyle. Today we are proud to have the largest NO-KILL shelter in Asheville. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was established in 2006. We started off as a very small group of people, taking dogs and cats from gassing shelters in GA. We found wonderful homes for these animals but realized while we were saving these particular animals, we had a much bigger problem in our community that we needed to face. Perfectly healthy, highly adoptable animals in our community are being euthanized every day. Rescued pets are not broken or damaged goods. They are wonderful animals who have ended up homeless through no fault of their own.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville, off Swannanoa River Rd, 1/2 mile from Lowe's. Open every day.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions will require a contract and discussions with one of our adoption counselors. Based on the needs of the particular animal, we reserve the right to require a home visit at the discretion of the adoption counselor. All our animals will be altered before adoption and up-to-date on standard vaccinations. We do collect an adoption fee.
