ADOPTED ON 05-20-17 - Apollo was in a high kill shelter, emaciated, frightened, depressed but had a strong will to live. As a German shepherd, the will to live opens most doors allowing us to redevelop its trust and its ability to love humans. In Apollo’s case his resurrection has been a beautiful journey of uncovering a dog so special in his depth of love, his amazing intelligence and his willingness to overcome the past makes him stand out from all the rest. He will be your guardian, your clown, your companion, your lap dog and your strength, never misunderstanding your needs, all the while totally dedicated to you and your well-being.
Apollo has a little more growing to do but he is athletic and graceful, with a strong sense of self and self-confidence. As far as other dogs he very well socialized. He is a buddy, likes going on long walks and gets along with his kennel mates. He is very energetic, wants to please and love to play with toys. Without a doubt, he is very handsome, and turns heads as he proudly walks by. He loves attention, affection and adores humans.
Are you a family that considers your dog to be a “family member”? Apollo is now ready to share his heart and soul with the right family who can cherish him. Ideally, while we can't recast Apollo’s history, we can create his future and that's what our rescue focuses on doing: making the most of the dogs attributes and placing him in an ideal home. It's why we rescue -- to make a difference and collaborate with adopters who are equally guided by the same motivation to make a difference in a deserving dog's life. Apollo truly is so deserving of a good and wonderful life- just like him.
Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the
Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794
for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.
Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs' biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog's DNA tested at their own expense.
About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
If you have the time and love to offer this extremely bright dog who can make you laugh for hours at his antics, PLEASE APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A RESCUE DOG VILLAGE DOG AND GIVE ONE A HOME. Our dogs deserve all that a committed family can offer. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular dog!
Please contact RescueDogVillage@yahoo.com and we will be happy to return your correspondence, but please submit the application now so we can have that information as a starting base for our dialogue.
