Apollo is a lovely German Shepherd mix. He is very low key and just wants to be near you. He handles like a service dog on a leash regardless of the distractions. He sleeps next to the bed and occasionally snuggles in bed. He has a big watch dog bark without the risk of a bite. He would be wonderful for a retired person or a senior. He's the kind of dog that your kids could put in a dress.
He is absolutely fine with all dogs of all sizes. He will guard a cow hoof but just don't give them to your dogs then. He's not food aggressive with other dogs but he is fed in a crate. He is not a problem with humans and his food. He can be loose in the house even when no one is home as he has never destroyed anything or hurt himself. He may need to have other dogs around as he did live with another dog.

Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures, on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
