This week we want to give you a closer look at Apollo, courtesy of our friends over at ReadingGlasses.com! Clearly, this long-term resident hasn’t found their forever home yet because the right person just hasn’t laid eyes on them yet!
Apollo was our very first ReadingGlasses.com featured pet back in July, but he’s still waiting for his forever home. So, for our final ReadingGlasses.com feature of the year, we wanted to share Apollo again in hopes that he can find his forever home soon.
Let’s start with Apollo’s best quality – his house manners! Apollo is house trained, does well when left alone, is non-destructive, knows how to entertain himself, and is a generally quiet and chill dude! He loves treats, toys, sunbathing, belly rubs, chasing squirrels, and cuddling for nap time. Apollo is a very loyal dog and never forgets his friends. Once he’s your bud, he’s very tolerant of all sorts of handling and has no issues sharing his snacks or toys with you. He is truly one of the funniest dogs we’ve ever seen – he will watch college football intently with his foster dad and contorts his body into some very silly positions when he settles down for a nap.
Apollo is the apple of our eye, but he isn’t the perfect pet for everyone. Like some people, Apollo can struggle with making a good first impression. He can get along with just about anyone – it just takes him a lot longer than most dogs to trust new people. Apollo is distrustful of strangers and needs a managed introduction and a couple of visits to vet his humans before he’ll let them in his Cool Kids Club. Please bring snacks!
Apollo needs a home with adults only and needs to be the only pet in the home. Trust us, his personality is big enough to fill up a whole house! He doesn’t mind dogs at a distance, but is not interested in making canine friends – he wants his family all to himself! Apollo needs a home with a private, securely fenced back yard. He loves doing zoomies and enjoys hopping over the bushes. Apollo would also like to note (AHEM, Foster Dad!) that he would like to be consulted on all landscaping decisions so he can pick out his favorite plants.
In order to make the transition a bit easier, Apollo is available for a trial adoption! He’ll spend several weeks in your home with support and help from our foster department while Apollo gets settled and you determine whether he’s a good fit for your home.
