INTRODUCING A VERY SPECIAL DOGGIE INSIDE AND OUT! (3 Meet Apollo, the super handsome, sentimental, sweet and affectionate youngster waiting on hope. What sets Apollo apart is his innate desire to connect and bond. His huge and bright amber eyes are filled with sincerity, kindness, and soul. His plush, brindled maple coat is unusually unique, light and offset by a strong vanilla chest. Uber special ears crafted to sway and flop with his expressions. He is certainly special! His temperament is loving, playful and soft bodied. He allowed all handling, agreeable to chipping, blood draw and medical examination like a champ. Has a nose scab from seeking attention through the kennel bars. Apollo likes to give stand up hugs, also known as mounting. He seeks attention and has a penchant for making his friends feel loved. He is easily leashed, walks beautifully and so enjoys being spoken to. He responds with a nonstop wagging tail. He is a smart cookie too, learns the ropes quickly. It's hard to imagine anyone harming him, though apparently someone repeatedly struck him. Apollo is being faulted for defending himself ONCE, The absurdity of this is astonishingly unacceptable. His movie captures him superbly, a sweet, soft, young, athletic and very beautiful doggie, delighting in the attention issued from volunteers. Respectful, sociable and full of joy. His heartfelt qualities go on and on. Sadly he has been placed on the saddest list, and now racing against the clock.

Date of assessment:: 2/13/2020 Summary:: When taken out of his kennel, Apollo repeatedly attempts to mount handlers. He is difficult to distract from this behavior. As this is what he does every time he is interacted with, he is not a good candidate for a handling assessment.

However, he is a young dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
