year-old Apollo has had a hard life and came to GCDR years
ago after spending most of his life tied to a front porch.
He was adopted by a veterinarian in Mississippi and there,
met his best friend Deuce. Life was good there until Hurricane
Katrina hit the Gulf Coast Community. His owner believed
her home was safe as it had withstood hurricanes before.
Intending to ride out the storm with her dogs she finally
relented to family pressure and sought shelter at the last
minute leaving Apollo and Deuce behind with enough food
and water for several days. Her Mississippi community was
virtually washed away by the storm. She returned home as
soon as local police would allow and found her home only
partially standing. Doors had to be knocked down to search
through the devastation. Behind the last door were Apollo
and Deuce, curled up together on a wet mattress. Scratches
near the ceiling evidenced their desperate attempts to keep
their heads above water as it rose. Together, Apollo and
Deuce had miraculously survived.
to the financial hardships brought by the storm their owner
surrendered both Apollo and Deuce back to GCDR. Given all
these two wonderful dobes have been though it has been decided
that it would be a crime to separate them now. Apollo and
his buddy Deuce are now with a wonderful foster family until
a forever home can be found who will take them both. They
are extremely bonded and spend their days on a sofa together
where you can find Deuce gently grooming his dear friend
areas: Louisiana, Mississippi, and lower Alabama
Special Needs: These two are up for adoption together only
