Apollo wins Best Ears

SPCA of Texas Pet of the Week: Apollo

The award for “Best in Ears” goes to…Apollo! Apollo came to SPCA of Texas as part of a cruelty case in February 2019. He had a long journey to recovery, but with patience, love, and an awesome foster dad, Apollo has flourished into the goofy, loyal pup you see today!


MORE ABOUT APOLLO Apollo is in a foster home currently as well as through the pandemic. His foster dad is back to working on the road too much to keep him full time, but has nothing but good things to say! Apollo is a very charismatic guy and never forgets his friends. Once he’s your bud, he loves you and is even willing to share his snacks or toys with you.

He loves treats (even vegetables!), sunbathing, belly rubs, chasing squirrels, entertaining himself with toys, watching sports on TV, sleeping in all kinds of silly positions, and cuddling for nap time! Are you looking for a dog with great house manners? Apollo is house trained, does well when left alone, is non-destructive, knows how to entertain himself, and is a generally quiet and chill dude!

He is looking for a home where he can be the only pet in the home — he wants his family all to himself! Apollo’s home should have a private, securely fenced backyard.

He would like his home to be 13+ (we need you to bring kids 13-16 for a meet and greet to be sure everyone is a good fit”.

NOTE: He is available for foster-to-adopt. Either way you will need to make an appointment at the SPCA of Texas to meet this great guy!!
