Pit bulls have always gotten a bad wrap for a number of reasons. The common misconception is that all pit bulls are aggressive and mean. These traits, however, are a result of training and care from the owner of the dog. These misconceptions have given pit bulls a negative stereotype. When I was growing up, my neighbors had a pit bull that I was terrified of, until I actually met him. Once I got a chance to pet him, he was the sweetest dog on the planet! The pit bull in this story was overlooked because of his breed stereotype, but local law enforcement finally gave him the chance he deserved.

Apollo, the pit bull, didn't have the best upbringing. Apollo was found, homeless, on the streets of Washington. He was taken in by an animal shelter in Tukwila. Once the shelter had checked him for injuries and gotten him the proper care, they put him up for adoption in the hopes that a good family would take him in quickly. Because of his energetic nature and breed stereotype, however, Apollo stayed in the shelter for half a year, being passed over for other dogs.

The shelter was running out of options for Apollo. They could not afford to hold him much longer and there were talks of euthanizing the poor pup. Before that happened, one of the workers at the shelter decided to make one more call to see if he could find Apollo a good home. The call was to local law enforcement, and it was a call that would change Apollo's life forever. CLICK "NEXT PAGE" TO READ THE REST OF THE STORY... [VIDEO]
