"This is such a great story," she told the Daily News. "I knew I had to do something for this dog."
“He's a great dog. I actually am proud because I wasn't there, that was actually my job to be there and help her out on that occasion, but at least Apollo was with her," Carlos Guzman, Apollo's owner, told KABC.
The Nassau County Sheriff has offered to help train Apollo and he's also being awarded a $500 gift card to a local pet store, KABC reported.
