Aponte is a sweet, gentle and alert dog who gets along with other dogs and loves his people. He has a perpetual smile on his face. He bonds very closely with his people and can be over-protective, unless properly trained. He is also a strong and sturdy boy, and his girth makes him even cuddlier. He is a very good walker, except for occasional stops for belly rubs. He is anxiously awaiting his forever home. Aponte is at our shelter in Brooklyn.
