I am already neutered and a special needs pet.
Apollo is our big eyed boy looking for the right person to love him. This one-year-old Chihuahua is a very special dog with special needs. Apollo was born with some birth challenges. He has a soft spot on his head where the skull never closed, his spine is crooked and his back legs are deformed which makes it difficult for him to stand. But he hasn’t let any of that stop him! This little adorable little guy is cute as can be, is able to move his back legs together in a hopping motion when he’s on carpet and he enjoys the company of other dogs. He adores being carried around and is an amazing cuddler. Apollo knows to do his business on wee-wee pads and loves sleeping in bed with his foster mom and her dogs. He is neutered, will be up-to-date on his shots and microchipped before adoption.
