What happened to Apollo k9? 

Jake Paul had two dogs by the name of Apollo and Athena before he got his current dogs. He bought Apollo and Athena with his friend Anthony. In the video, Paul explains how he wanted to be a Navy Seal growing up, and seeing how Navy Seals use Belgian Malinois’ as service dogs, he always wanted one.

He bought the dog back in 2017 and created a lot of content with his dog. However, soon, the hyperactive canine started attacking and biting his team members and other dogs as well. Due to this, he had to send the puppy to get trained. After he sent the dog for training, he didn’t get to meet his dog for nearly a year.

However, even after a year of training, Paul could not keep Apollo because of his busy schedule. Belgian Malinois are working-class dogs and are very driven and high on energy. They need a lot of exercise and training every day. Paul could not find the time for Apollo and therefore he no longer has the dog.
