When Apollo was found at a shelter, he was in bad shape. Not only was he physically fading away, but he was in such bad shape mentally from being abused, you could tell he thought he deserved it.
A loving family decided to make a difference in this pup’s life and took him home. His transformation is unbelievable.
While at the shelter, Apollo was so terrified he couldn’t look any humans in the face. He believed he should die.
But, after seeing him in his cage, one family refused to give up on him… even when vets said his distemper was so bad, they should just let him die.
Shortly after being rescued, his new owner said:
We brought him home, and we gave him food, and a bed, and everything a puppy wants. You should have seen how excited he was when we fed him in those first few months. He recovered entirely from his illness. Slowly, he became the best dog, even at times very cuddly. His favorite thing on the planet is our morning walks. He is loving, confident, and sweet-the perfect family pet. He is our tiny dachshund’s best friend in the world. Recently we had a baby, and from the moment we brought our baby home, Apollo adopted the baby as if he were his own puppy.
Some dogs just need a chance – they’ll show you how good life can be. Share if you believe shelter dogs deserve another chance at happiness.
