TYPE OF HOME REQUIRED:
Apollo would suit a single adult only home as he does bond very quickly to a single person. As he has an ongoing spinal problem, he will need to be regularly monitored by PACT appointed vets and PACT will continue to pay for any treatment required for these ongoing problem.
Apollo is a high energy dog but his spinal problems are limiting the amount of exercise he can have and he needs careful management. He needs someone to work closely with his physiotherapist to rebuild his strength and flexibility.
He is well trained but needs a firm sympathetic handler, he is very affectionate but can be reactive to other dogs while on lead, we are hoping to work on this when he is strong enough. Because of his health he would be better off as an only dog as he will always be fragile. He would suit an active person who has experience of the breed as he has very strong GSD traits.
Due to his problems he would benefit from living as an only pet in a bungalow, or a house where he would not have access to stairs.
If you think you could offer Apollo a home please contact the sanctuary in the first instance on 01362 820775 or email us.
