If you’re a Cattledog fan, you’re going to love Apollo. This 3 year-old found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to take his time in finding the perfect new home. Apollo is a very active dog who needs a job to do. He loves running and playing chase with his fellow foster dogs and would also make a great trail running buddy. Apollo has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He does settle down nicely in his crate for a nap after playtime is over but is not the type of dog who would do well left alone for long workdays and is looking for humans who understand the needs of this active, intelligent breed. Apollo walks pretty well on a leash and will sit for a treat. He’s eager to learn lots more with his new family. Apollo was adopted briefly but returned after he was overly interested in chasing the resident cat. He is a herding dog so if he is to live peacefully with a cat, he will need some training and proper introduction to the kitty. It might be best if he is adopted into a cat-free home. Apollo weighs about 47 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Apollo. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
