How did you meet your canine companion?
Apollo and I met on January 21st, 2015 when an old coworker spotted him near a ditch in some bushes. I was working with a rescue, ADORE Houston, at the time and immediately drove out to meet the dog missing half his face. At first sight, my breath was taken away. He was disfigured, dirty, and starving. He was also guarding his deceased company. Even though he was in dire need of help, he stared at me with such strength. A leash was finally put around his neck after a few minutes and the rest is history.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Since Apollo is the god of medicine and beauty, along with other things, we felt that it was the epitome of this dog. He was strong and beautiful in his own way, while having this ability to heal others with his forgiveness and kindness.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
He has taught me the meaning of true forgiveness and love.
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Joyful, forgiving, compassionate
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?

What’s your dog’s superpower?
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
Doctor or someone that cares for the sick.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
Well since he's missing his nose, when he sneezes it is extra messy!
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
On the couch or in the backyard.
