Senior Pittie Makes A Plea For A Forever Home After Not Receiving A Single Adoption Application In Two Years

“This is the look of a 9 year old dog that has done NOTHING wrong.”

Apollo, a nine-year-old pittie, knows all about patience. He has been waiting for over two years for someone to walk through the shelter doors and pick him.

This laid back boy was pulled from the NYACC kill list by Second Chance Rescue (SCR) in February 2017, where he ended up by no fault of his own. His owner moved into a housing unit that did not allow dogs and Apollo ended up in a high-kill shelter. Sadly, there has not been one application for him in the past two years.

All he wants and deserves is to find a forever home to enjoy his golden years.

It is apparent from his hacked ear cropping and abandonment that Apollo has endured struggles, but through it all he remains a happy boy. He greets everyone by wiggling his butt and flashing his adorable smile.

This handsome black pittie is a real charmer with soulful eyes. The shelter is no place for this gentle giant that still has so much love to give. All he wants is a home to relax and for a family to love. “Ideally I would like to be filling my days with belly rubs, cuddles and play time with a family,” posted SCR for Apollo.

He is the complete package: good looks, great manners, affectionate and house trained. Not to mention eyes that captivate your soul. What more can you ask for?!
