Apollo is a wonderful, healthy eight-year old greyhound. He only ran seven races before they retired him and a man adopted him in 2011. Then the family began to grow.

It became Apollo, mom, dad and then two kids. Now mom and dad have split up. Dad works as a chef doing 12 hour days and then tries to co-parent his kids but Apollo cannot adjust to the long hours and other options just aren't working. So Apollo has come to Friends of Greyhounds.

He is a very slender red boy with bright eyes. He has only been with us a short while but he's made friends and is having fun. His dad wrote us a nice letter about all his likes and dislikes. He has no experience with small dogs but is terrified of cats. He loves kids and is patient with them.

He likes to snuggle on the couch or the bed and he loves his crate. If he's going to be left alone, he'll be happier in his crate. Nobody is perfect sooo - - just keep a lid on the trash can. That's all I'm saying.

He's a good boy and he's been through a tough emotional time. Greyhounds are very sensitive souls and this guy needs a home to call his own. How about sharing yours?
