Story
Hi! My name is Apollo and I’m a Brittany Spaniel pup! I’m a big explorer, love being outside, and going on walks or runs. I’m very sociable and love making new friends. I am eager to learn and be taught new tricks. As much as I love to play, I’ll sit and enjoy watching a movie or out the window with you too. I burp, fart, talk-back, kiss, and beg for attention in the cutest ways, I’ve got a big loveable personality! ##1974134##
