Hello, my name is Forrest.
I joined Ruff Start Rescue from a local family who wanted more for me. I had always been an outside dog, and they saw that I longed to be indoors.
I am being fostered with a great family! There is another dog here, and I really like him. He is much older than me, so we don't play too much, but I enjoy his company.
I just got my very own toy - my first toy! I love toys, and I will spend hours chewing them and playing with them.
I'm still learning my manners but am smart and eager to please, so my foster mom thinks learning will be easy.
I consider myself to be a lap dog, my foster mom says I'm too big for that, but she allows my goofy butt up next to her anyways.
I would love a family of my own, do you think you could be the one?
