Woof! Hello, my name is Forest! I am a 2-year-old, mostly white with black male Pit Bull mix weighing 47-pounds. Unlike Forrest Gump, I'm not a runner, but I will give your lap some serious time and attention! I came to the SPCA of Texas on July 27 when I was surrendered to an Animal Cruelty Investigator because my previous owner could not properly care for me. When I first arrived, I was in rough shape. My ears were dirty, my skin dry and dull and I was suffering from hair loss. After receiving top notch medical care and lots of love, I'm looking and feeling much better. I am super sweet, but I can be a bit shy. Once I get to know you, you can really see my loyal and loving personality begin to shine. I'm gentle and would love nothing more than a person to cuddle up to each day. I have been neutered, microchipped and have received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Won't you come meet me today? I bet you'll fall in love with me!
