we cant walk apollo without someone being afraid...he loves people sooo much but cant stand dogs. we really should have made him more sociable as a pup! i think most of peoples problem is his size...he is a very big shepherd compared to every other one i have seen...daddy was huge and mom was too...he was the runt!
