Hi, I'm Apollo

About Apollo

Apollo is about 3 years old and is a total blue goofball! He potentially has a vestibular disease – that just makes him who he is. He is what we call affected, but it is not progressive and does not slow Apollo down. He does have an adorable head tilt and has a very goofy gait. Sometimes he is so happy he can’t control his balance. He loves to play with toys, gallop through a yard, and snuggle. He LOVES food and will take any opportunities to eat more. (As you can see, he came to us quite skinny and is still filling out all the weight he needs.) He also wants all of his food to himself and does not like to share food with other dogs. Apollo is not sure of children and finds them to be scary. Apollo has never met a cat so unsure of how he would react. He will need a quiet home who can give him a lot of attention, somewhere with patience, and a family who will help guide him through his lopsided life. He is unsteady on stairs and over stimulation makes his condition act up. Apollo is a special, happy boy and would do well in a happy home!
