Aponte is a handsome doggie, likely an Akita mix and a jumble of others. He is 8 years old, and has sadly spent half his life locked up in shelters. But he loves people and craves belly rubs from them. He is perfectly housetrained and currently learning basic commands. He plays well with other doggies in the dog run. He currently weighs 70lbs, but he is on a strict diet and in a few months, he'll weigh a much healthier 55-60lbs. He's a super loving dog, modest energy, and can get along with calm cats. His ideal forever home would not be too busy with visitors, but he is a fan of kind people and would be fine with kids that are gentle with him. if you would like to meet Aponte please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
