Apollo, 3 year old Yorkipoo (Yorkie/Poodle mix) was surrendered to the city shelter when his family had “personal problems”. This 12 lb cutie has already come a long way since coming to his new foster home.

Here is what his devoted foster family tells us about Apollo the Yorkipoo:

“Apollo has been such a good boy since coming to our home. He is one active kid, always ready to play or go out. He’s crazy about belly rubs! and has really taken to my husband.

Judging by the way he cowers when petted, Apollo was physically abused in his past. He’s also not used to city life….too many people, large objects seem to scare him.

Apollo loves other dogs and older kids, but needs a patient human who will take time for Apollo to be able to go slowly with meeting new people. So finding the right family for Apollo is key. We would love to help find him a perfect family who will give him time to trust and give him the loving home he deserves.”

Apollo is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. NO YOUNG KIDS PLEASE
