Apollo the Lab
Still looking for the right home for Apollo...would prefer to be an only dog...would love the opportunity to swim...an amazing dog...never stops wagging his tail!
Apollo is a 5 to 6 year old black Labrador...gentle, great with kids, cats, other dogs, ALL people...surrendered due to owner relocating, Apollo has some skin issues that we will get under control before he goes to his new home. Much vet work done today January 20, 2014...waiting on blood test results to determine treatment plan... Please watch his progress on our site!
UPDATE....Apollo had an almost nonexistent thyroid function...and was 25 pounds under weight...after a couple of months of soloxine for his thyroid (a very inexpensive thyroid supplement) and good nutrition....he is right where he should be...his hair has grown in quickly... a few spots left...we are allergy testing currently...we have no doubt that when he leaves That Newfoundland Place...he will go on to lead a completely normal life with a minimum of medication...he is SUCH a good boy...and now we know he LOVES to swim!!!
We are still looking for the right home for Apollo. He has become one magnificent boy! He looks great and behaves like a champ! Stays right with you...comes when you call...amazing! He needs a home where he has access to swimming ... he will make a great addition to YOUR family!
Here's an updated picture of Apollo the Labrador! What a difference good food, exercise, and thyroid medication make! Such an easy and inexpensive fix! He is like a different dog!
