Apollo is a neutered male German shepherd who is about 5 years old. He is house-trained and reported to be good in the home. Previously, he lived with numerous cats and was said to be good with them too! He is unknown with small dogs or male dogs. Here at the rescue kennel, he has been OK with several of the friendly, mellow large-breed females.
Apollo is always up for an adventure with the volunteers, whether he's tromping through the woods, sniffing along the walking paths or playing fetch in the training building! He gets excited and will sometimes jump up on people, but he settles down quickly and walks very nicely on the leash. In the training building, he likes the tennis balls but his all-time favorite has to be the squeaky Jumbler ball. He'll chase it, squeak it, and roll over onto his back with the ball in his mouth (see videos below). Apollo is also affectionate once he knows you, and will come over to give you kisses.
Apollo can be a bit wary of strangers, so a busy household with young children or lots of folks coming & going can be a bit overwhelming for him. He would prefer a home away from the city, where there's not a lot of outside traffic or indoor commotion. We are recommending an adult-only home, or one with older teenage kids.
If you live in a quiet setting and are looking for a loyal, loving companion - ask about Apollo!
Apollo has been neutered, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and vaccinated. He is on Flea/Tick and Heartworm prevention.
