APOLLO – 18889
Safe - 1-30-2018 Brooklyn Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Apollo. My animal id is #18889. I am a male black dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 21-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
Apollo was placed at risk due to behavior concerns; Apollo has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. Because of the behavior reported in his previous home environment, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.
Apollo 18889 is at risk for kennel stress. He received a New Hope Only behavior rating due to being fearful in the shelter environment. He is waived from neuter at our facility due to age but has no medical concerns.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 108 lbs

A staff member writes: Apollo is a huge mush once out of his kennel. He solicits attention and his body remains loose, wiggly during our interaction. He loves to be rubbed and pet all over once he gets to know you, but needs someone who can go slowly with him. He is a special older man, with a kind heart and an open mind.
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 2. Blue
