**Reduced adoption fee, now $125 (previously $150) in hopes to help Apollo find his forever family sooner, he's been overlooked and in rescue for several months now.**

Apollo is a sweet young man, he just turned a year old on February 21st. He is a beautiful shade of brindle and weighs about 65 lbs. He's a big baby and never lacks for personality.

He is house trained and crate trained. He has been trained to sit and lay down, shake and speak. He also knows drop it, it's his favorite one to pretend he doesn't know because giving up toys isn't fun! When he needs to go out, he will scratch at the door and wait for you to let him out. As for additional training, we have found Apollo to be really easy to correct and quick to catch on to what you expect of him. He is decent on a leash (without use of choke collar or gentle leader) and corrects pretty well on the leash considering he's had no formal training.

Apollo enjoys riding in the car, although he'd really prefer to be in the front seat, he settles down nicely and just hangs out and likes to sniff out a slightly opened window.

Apollo loves to run and play and loves his toys but is also really good about laying around in the house and playing calmly. He has played really well with dogs smaller than him (down to Bichon size) that want to play. With small dogs that don't want to play, he may be a little overwhelming trying to make them play. With cats, he just doesn't know what to do with them. Sometimes he wants to lick their face and try to be friends, but if they hiss at him, he just starts barking in their face. He would probably cause too much stress for a cat, but he does not intend to ever catch or hurt them.

Apollo accepts correction from other dogs if he's playing too much and calms down and leaves them alone (we put him with an older dog that didn't want to play). He has also had experience with a grouchy alpha female and an alpha male on a separate occasion and he just stayed out of their way and occasionally tried to keep play. If Apollo is surrounded by unfriendly dogs or too dominant and unplayful dogs for too long, eventually he will not get along with them.

He is playful with bigger playful dogs and great with all people and is good with older kids. He hasn't had a lot of experience with little kids but is learning about them in his foster home, he seems to be fine with confident little kids, but he picks up on the weird energy from kids that are afraid and doesn't know how to respond. Older kids are the same as adults to him (probably about 10 yrs old +) and he loves loves them.

Apollo came to us as an owner surrender (life circumstances that made them unable to have a dog, nothing wrong with him), that is how we know his exact birthday and know that he has no noteworthy medical history and has been kept up to date on his vaccines.

Apollo WILL jump a 4 foot fence to come find you (meet you at the front door), but stays contained easily in a 6 ft fence. He will need to go to a family with a 6 ft, secure fence.

Apollo is neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. His adoption fee is $125 **reduced from $150, Apollo is ready to find his forever family!**.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Apollo, a Greeley American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Greeley, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Greeley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Greeley 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 Greeley 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 American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Greeley paves the way for another one to be saved.
