Apollo the champion
Apollo is a rescue from San Bernardino, CA. He was owned by a man in a low-income area. The owner of apollo had a neighbor who fights with him all the time. One day, Apollo escaped to the neighbor searching for food. He put his head inside an ice box where the neighbor had some food that was ready to be grilled. When the neighbor realized that Apollo is eating from the Ice-box. He kicked him in his abdomen and picked up a stick and hit him on his head. The daughter of that neighbor saw her dad doing this and stopped him from further damages to Apollo. Then, she contacted the neighbor who owns the dog in order to take his dog back. The owner of Apollo was frightened and asked the girl to help him drop him off a shelter as he could not afford treating him. Searching on the internet, the girl found our contacts and sent us an urgent email.
At that time, Apollo was dying, we took him immediately to an emergency check up. The veterinarian said that Apollo has a lot of blood clots under his skin, a hernia in his abdomen, and the blood supply was cut to one of his eyes.
The veterinarian suggested treating him with medications for few days before going into surgery.
After being treated for few days, Apollo went into surgery for his Hernia and he was successfully operated (See photos below).
After two weeks of being operated for his Hernia, he went through a second surgery to remove his injured eye (See photos below).
After one week, Apollo's stitches will be taken out and he will be released for adoption.
Behavioral wise, Apollo is so sweet. He gets along with other dog. He is good with people and kids. He is potty trained and crate trained. He is so grateful and loyal.
There are potential adopters who were always supporting him and following up on his status. We are keeping the faith that Apollo will find his forever home very soon.
We will never allow an animal to suffer. Whenever there is an animal in need, we will always help medicate, rehabilitate, and find him a forever home.
