Apollo's Story...
Apollo is a sweetheart. He did great with his dog foster brother and the cat. He is the typical velcro dog, although he sometimes doesn't realize how close he is and bumps into or steps on you. He is very friendly, will soon be up to date on shots, , and I think will fit in with most families. He doesn't do stairs, but is happy to wait at the bottom until you return! His birth date was May 27, 2006, so he will actually be 6 this May. He is a goof, and very sweet. Apollo is a very big boy- 240 pounds, so will need an owner that understands that sometimes older mastiffs may beed additional supplements to support their joints when they age.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Apollo, a Asheboro English Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Mastiff for sale in Asheboro, or seeking a English Mastiff dog from a breeder in Asheboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Asheboro 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 Asheboro 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 English Mastiff breeders who help with English Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Asheboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
