“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 10 months old and 42 lbs, 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 so close to having potty training down! He has started to signal that he needs to go out by whining, and given just a smidge more time he should be 100% potty trained. Forrest is kennel trained, though! Forrest is working on learning a command to go into his kennel, but otherwise does great in his kennel. He knows it’s his safe space, and enjoys hanging out in it. Forrest is currently learning the commands “stay” and “down,” but knows the commands “sit” and “leave it!”

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 can be a little shy when first meeting new canine-buddies, but once he knows that they are friends Forrest is down to play around. Just like with cats, Forrest is respectful if the other dog doesn’t want to play with him. Forrest doesn’t need too much exercise – a few walks and play sessions with keep him content for the day! 

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. Foster Mom is helping him learn how to self-entertain with toys, but right now Forrest prefers thrashing around his toys with a pal. 

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