Are you looking to heal someone’s soul as much as they’ll heal yours? Well as it goes, Apollo is the Greek God of healing and our boy needs someone special to welcome him into their home and heal his sensitive and gentle soul.

Apollo, known affectionately as Polly,  has been with us at GAP since 2019 and despite his beautiful nature, no one ever chooses him. Polly has been around for long enough to know what he likes and what he doesn’t like. What he doesn’t like is being touched when he’s lying down, or when he’s sleeping. This is an important one for him and should always be respected. What he does like is LOTS of neck scratches, toys, WALKS! (the best thing ever!), lots of treats and he definitely wants his own armchair! Apollo is also on a low dose, affordable behavioural medication to help him through the upset of so much change which has only made it easier for people to overlook him.
Apollo is quite experienced at pet life and has the advantage of having been in a home for quite some time previously. He is an expert lounge lizard and really just wants to get out of the kennel environment once an for all and back into the cushy comfort his highness is accustomed to.

Apollo will suit being an only dog in a family that is home with him more often than not. Due to the above mentioned dislikes, Polly won’t be suited to living with children. He loves his outings to the beach or lake and doesn’t mind if other dogs tag along, so dog walking/social/support groups could be of grey-t benefit.

We’re really just waiting for the perfect person that wants to help Apollo. If you’re a healer too, get in touch with our Central Coast facility today!
