I'm a happy girl despite being down on my luck lately, somehow ending up at the pound as a stray which was very stressful. When I was saved by Forte Animal Rescue, I did not really know how to behave in the world and I needed some guidance. They sent me to a doggie bootcamp where I learnt how to behave around people and other dogs, and so now I have improved manners and I am a lot more obedient than I was. I even earnt the nickname "Miss Smarty Pants" as I am apparently also very clever. Please look at my video where you can see what I learnt while I was there! I am still young and love to play. I have that puppy energy you know! My ideal home would be with another dog who loves to play as much as I do. That would be a dream come true! But I can be an only dog as long as I have a family who understand and love my need to play. I also need daily walks and would make a great running or hiking partner. I just need someone to take good care of me, love me and never let me go. I love to give kisses and be held. Please come and meet me if you think you can give me what I need! I promise I am worth it!

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

- You will be asked to submit to a "home safety check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.

- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.

- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
