My story

Apolla is a sweet, insecure girl in desperate need of stability, love, and guidance from an experienced dog person. She was found as a stray in Los Angeles, CA, and lived with her finders for over a year. When they broke up, Apolla's life became unstable, with lots of moves and lots of new people. Apolla eventually ended up in the shelter in Austin, Texas, where she was to be killed after a bite. 

Apolla is currently in training. Her training is coming to an end and she needs an experienced foster or adopter who can provide the safety and stability she craves. Apolla's a little girl, a compact 50 pounds of solid, stocky muscle. She needs an adults-only home with people who understand and are willing to follow a trainer's instructions. Would you like to be a lifesaver? Apolla needs you!

Apolla could possibly live with another friendly, confident dog, as long as it's with people who are willing to go slow.

Additional adoption info

Many of our rescued dogs have a history of behavior issues and were in danger of being killed for behavior in a pound or shelter. We take the time to evaluate and provide any needed training before adopting out our dogs, and we're looking for safe, loving homes.
