Apollo is my little sister's service dog . He is a hard working dog who is sweet and loving. He has provided none stop care to her and peace of mind for us. He makes sure she is okay and ready to "ring the alarm", when need be.
Unfortunately, Apollo was rushed to an emergency hospital last night for bloat. He needs emergency surgery otherwise we will have no choice but to put him down due to the cost. He is uncomfortable and time is running low.
Apollo has had quite a journey. He is a Georgia boy, who has grown to love Florida! His original family did not treat him the best and therefore he was removed. Lucky for us, he was reassigned to my little sister. I can't even begin to explain the blessing he has been for my sister.
She has gained so much independence because of him. He has NEVER failed her! So we can't fail him now when he needs us the most!
Having a special needs kid is no easy job and my parents have sacraficed so much for her. When her teacher said she reached her learning limit at the age of 8, they told the teacher she was a moron. My sister will be graduating high school with her special diploma in a few weeks! I am so proud of her!
Apollo has been through this journey with her, he may deserve a diploma too. He keeps her safe and is alway on alert with her. My parents were finally able to have a restful nights sleep once he came into our family, he is her guardian angel.
He is a valuable part of her treatment and most of all, he is family. Anything helps . Please share and spread the word.
