  • Animal ID#: A304755
  • Dog Name: Apple
  • Dog Sex: Spayed Female
  • Approximate Age: 7 years
  • This girl is sweet and totally precious! She’s simply lovely in every way. She arrived with a serious skin infection, which is being treated, and it looks as though she has been neglected, which breaks our hearts for this sweetie pie. She is clearly ready to be treated like a princess and companion: She is the most gentle and mannerly love, she very gently walks up and wants to get in between your legs for snuggles and kisses, and she wants to be a couch potato! Looking for your perfect Netflix and chill buddy? She’s definitely it! She needs to be the only dog at this time. She is already on the road to recovery and now just needs her happily ever after in a loving home! Please note: All medications will be sent home with her adopter free of charge!
  • She’s a huge hit on Dog Day Out, as you can see in the photos from her most recent adventure below.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
