Meet Apollo

Meet Apollo! This handsome devil joins us from our friends at St. Louis County Animal Care and is now enjoying the heck out of his time with his SGSDR foster family (humans and canines alike).

Apollo is about 4 years old, full of energy, knows “sit,” will give “paw” for treats, and will play fetch for as long as your arm can stand it. Nope, we are not kidding ... at all!

The big guy was fearful in the shelter and didn't know which way was up. But since settling into his foster home, his fun-loving, mischievous, and sweet personality has bloomed, and Apollo is getting along well with his canine foster siblings and adult humans alike.

But make no mistake, he's a young, male GSD in his prime ... which means he will test you, get stubborn, and acquire "selective hearing" disorder if he doesn't feel inclined to do as you ask. So an experienced, no-nonsense family would be best equipped to help this young dude live his best life.

(And if you're laughing at that prior sentence while nodding your head knowingly, that family might be you!)

Apollo's interest level (good or bad) with cats or small scurrying pets is unknown. He's been getting along great with his human's dog-savvy 12 and 13 year old kids. Given his energy and brash-young-GSD spirit, we think he will be best set up to succeed in a home with no small children. He can succeed in a home with older, dog-savvy kids like his foster family's when led by experienced adults who require responsible play and supervision.

If our feisty young Apollo just made you perk up and smile, please apply to adopt!
