Abused Dog Who Thought He Deserved to Die Is Beautifully Proven Wrong

Apollo was a frightened puppy when he received Texas Animal Care Services in San Antonio . He cowered in his kennel and his posture was one among utter fear! When a photograph of him was published it broke the hearts of animal lovers.

Someone had obvious abused him in his past and he was in very poor health. Although he was a dog with many problems both physical and mental, a family decided to require an opportunity on him and took him home.

Vets told the couple he had not been socialized early enough and would probably never make an honest family pet. They also diagnosed him with deadly distemper.
Megan Cook refused to go away him at the vets knowing he would hate to be put during a cage again. She wrote the Examiner and said:

“We brought him home, and that we gave him food, and a bed, and everything a puppy wants. you ought to have seen how excited he was once we fed him in those first few months.

“He recovered entirely from his illness. Slowly, he became the simplest dog, even sometimes very cuddly. His favorite thing on the earth is our morning walks.
“He is loving, confident, and sweet – the right family pet.

“He is our small dachshund’s ally within the world. Recently we had a baby, and from the instant we brought our baby home, Apollo adopted the baby as if he were his own puppy.”

It’s so amazing to listen to that despite all the obstacles Apollo faced and therefore the prejudices he encountered, that he overcame all the odds!

Here may be a beautiful before and after photo of this sweet dog:
