Apio is a darling little dog of about 2 years old that came to us with several dogs from a rescue that took them from the Bahamas.  Apio is a Potcake dog, which is a mix of lab, hound, and more.  No matter what she is, she's an absolute doll!  Apio is a little more reserved than some of the others but just show her some kindness and she's leaning on you, looking for all the attention you'll give her.  She looks to have had puppies in her young life and unfortunately, Apio also contracted heartworm along the way.  We have treated the heartworm but she will need to come back to us for a second treatment, and be on exercise restriction for the next four months. 

Aside from that, Apio is loving, sweet, happy to make new friends and check out new things like toys and treats.  She is a little afraid of the leash and will need basic training, but she's a quick learner.  Apio is good with other dogs too.  She'll need a home where she can stay calm during her heartworm treatment.  Call 609-693-1900 or email: for an application.  File#52711  7/2/21
