Happy boy, Appo, is ready for a home! Are you that special someone?? Appo is one year old, 42 pounds, and we were told he is a mix of Dalmatian, Pit Bull, Lab, and German Shepherd. Appo came to our shelter because his former owner hoped he would find a better life than what they could provide for him at that time. He came to us very timid, skittish, and under-socialized, having lived with one person and his doggy siblings (Milo, who was recently adopted, is his half-brother!). With patience, love, and lots of treats, Appo has come out of his shell and shown us what a wonderful dog he is! He's ready to go to a home that will give him the time to warm up and bond, because then he can show you how loyal and loving he can be! Loud noises, sudden movements, and new faces that try to approach too fast are scary for him, but he has been making wonderful progress thanks to our diligent volunteers. Once Appo trusts you, he will wiggle his whole body whenever he sees you and try to hop into your lap for snuggles. Basically, he just needs a family that will teach him that everything is going to be okay. He loves to play fetch, take a dip in his kiddie pool, and go on walks. His absolute favorite thing to do is play with other dogs, though! He'll try to play with dogs of all shapes and sizes; nobody gets left out of the fun! He knows his basic doggy manners and is potty trained. Appo would prefer a home without young kids, as they can be a bit overwhelming for him. Appo is current on shots, microchipped and neutered. The adoption fee for Appo is $250.
