I’m a lean (& not at all mean), loving, cuddling, and tail wagging, smiling machine with medium energy. I walk well on leash, love people and I’m dog friendly. I am the perfect hiking Buddy, jogging Buddy, hang-out Buddy…you get the picture. I was out for a stroll one day in the middle of the street in Compton when a nice lady saw me and called to me. I calmly walked over and said Hi. She looked around and noticed I was all by myself, skinny, and thought I might be lost and hungry, so I went for a ride with her and she gave me some fresh water (which I drank lots of) and she bought some yummy chicken breasts (which I devoured). Man, was I hungry!!! She thought I may have a family looking for me, so she took me to the pound and put up some flyers but no one came for me. So, she got in touch with Forte Animal Rescue and they bailed me from the slammer. While Forte looks for a foster home (or forever home would be better), I am staying at a boarding facility, which is quieter than the shelter, but lonely. I would love to find a new family to love. If you, or someone you know, would like to meet me, foster me, or adopt me, get in touch with Forte Animal Rescue and they can make it happen. Until then, I will be dreaming of a warm comfy couch and a lap to lay my head on.

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.
