Back in 2021, a (now former) SoCo staff member found a young  male Lab mix wandering the streets. The former staff member agreed to foster this dog and help nurse him back to health as he was undernourished at the time. From his first day with the staff  this very friendly, very attentive fellow became a bright spot in the lives of everyone he met. Because of his very pleasant and uplifting personality, he was given the name of the mythical god of song, poetry and a number of other positive aspects of life: "Apollo"!

Apollo has continued with his wonderful personality during his time at SoCo Rescue. We have no idea what his former life was truly like, but with his knowledge of basic commands it's obvious that someone once took time to train him, that he was once someone's companion and best friend. He has been excellent with other dogs and people of all ages and will make a great family companion. 

Upon his arrival, Apollo immediately received and has been kept up-to-date on all of his annual vaccinations and de-wormings,  monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives and other needed vet care. He's also been neutered. Apollo initially tested "light" positive for heartworms. We elected to use the "Slow Kill" method of treating his heartworms, which resulted in a Negative test results on Nov. 20, 2023. Apollo has displayed some house-training ability, but his adopter should be prepared to offer additional training.
