Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler

Medium  |  Male

Mount Carmel, IL


I came to the shelter on 8/7/2016 and I will be ready for adoption on 8/14/2016 if I am not reclaimed. I weigh 52 pounds. The volunteers are getting to know me, so check back for updates! UPDATE 8/17/2016: The vet says I am 4 years old and heartworm negative. I am neutered too!
Apollo is a beautiful bird dog-hound mix who was brought to the shelter after he wandered up into a young man’s yard one evening. This particular young man adopted a pup from us in the past, and knew we would take good care of him, so he brought him to us the next morning. Apollo was posted as found on our page, but his people never came forward for him in the allotted time, so he is now available for adoption. Apollo is now up to date on all of his vaccinations, neutered and healthy in every way. He did have quite the case of ear mites, but we are medicating and those pests will be gone in no time flat.

Apollo is long and lean and very graceful. He prances when he walks and has the prettiest moves. Maybe a ballet dancer in a previous life? He loves attention and is very gentle. Although we weighs 52 pounds, he thinks he is a lap dog. He is neat in his kennel and loves a bath and car rides.

UPDATE 9/17/2016:Wow! This is one awesome pup. We have gotten even better acquainted with Apollo since our first post. Letting him loose to run and play in the exercise pen is a thing of beauty to behold. He loves to play ball and is great at playing pitch and catch with himself if you are slow to get the game going. He can very quickly can get in a mellow, snuggle mood when he rolls over for a belly rub. He seeks human affection and has no mean bones in his beautiful speckled bod
