“My mama always told me that miracles happen every day. Some people don’t think so, but they do.” – Forrest, Forrest Gump (1994)

Welcome Forrest! At just about a year old and 48lbs, Forrest is a typical fun-loving puppy. He loves playing, toys, treats, and attention from humans. He’s also great with other dogs and cats!

Forrest is now fully potty trained! He let’s Foster Mom know that he needs to go by whining and pacing, so you always know when he needs to be let out! He is also fully kennel trained, and views his kennel as his safe space. Forrest has learned the commands “stay,” “down,” “sit,” and “leave it.” Not only that, Forrest is a gentleman in the home – he just chews on his toys, and leaves furniture and other items alone. 

MEOW! Forrest lives with four cats, and does wonderfully with them! He usually ignores that they’re there, and responds well to correction if the cats don’t want to play back with him. Forrest loves to play with other dogs, and is respectful when the other dog doesn’t want to play with him. He loves to play tug-of-war and catch with his friends, but Forrest doesn’t need too much exercise during the day – a few walks and play sessions with keep him content! However, Forrest recently went on a hike with Foster Mom and her dogs, so he can manage higher-energy activities like that too.

Forrest definitely loves his humans, and shows that by trying to cover them in kisses. 😘 He craves attention from people, and truly just wants to love and be loved on. Forrest doesn’t fully get the whole “personal space” thing at times, loving to snuggle up close with Foster Mom on the couch. Foster Mom has helped him learn how to entertain himself with toys, so now Forrest is better at keeping himself busy when his humans can’t play with him. 

Forrest is ready to love you forever, he’s just waiting for you to apply! Apply today, and show Forrest that miracles do happen!
