Hi, I'm Apollo! I'm a three-month-old lab mix. I'm a very playful boy! I love to play in water, even if that means splashing in my water bowl. My foster family says I haven't found a toy I don't like yet. I am also very affectionate and want a family that will give me lots of attention--if you don't, I'll make sure to remind you that I need some! I'm a very chatty pup! I love to snuggle and despite my size, I'm convinced I'm a lap pup. I am an excellent climber, so my foster family recommends that you have a six-foot fenced in yard for me to play safely in. I am still a puppy, so I do occasionally have accidents, but I'm doing a good job going potty outside if you take me out regularly. I am learning how to sit and lay down, but I'll need you to keep working on helping me gain new skills. I'd love to join an active family; could that be you?
Laura S is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Apollo is $400, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Apollo. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
