Forrest is about 1-3 yrs old, he is camera shy so his picture's are hard to get. I will continue to try to get better ones of him. He is a dachshund mix? That's a maybe his head is dach forsure but his tail curls in a circle over his back. He has a short dachshund coat plus longer body like one. He stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs 15 lbs. His ears stand out on each side but not completely they fold over (not sure if can ever get a pic to show this) they look like Italian Greyhound ears. He has had a hard life so far which makes him a little nervous. How I ended up with him was when I went to an 95% euth shelter to get pics of everyone one of the parole's who was leaving begged me to take him as he was never signed in which happens alot at this shelter and he didn't want him to end up living yrs at this awful place and just get euth since he wasn't in the system. I couldn't pass that up he was so nice to me and I knew if he was leaving it was just going to get worse as the other parole's wanted to work in the landfill outback and were cruel to the dogs/cats. He does have some issues after spending the first 9 months of his life in a small cement cage with no heat and extremely loud in the building. Considering all of that he is really great. I am not sure how he would be with young children but he has never shown any signs of any type of aggression. He is afraind of thunderstorms and what that means is he just want's to be with you and then it's ok. He is not so severe it's any real problem at all. He is crate/housetrained. He is the only rescue dog that I have ever had which is alot that really loves men. He likes women but when my husband is home he follows him everywhere. I believe it because of the man who worked at the shelter who gave him alot of attention. He will take a little longer than a pup to warm up to a new situation but it's really worth waiting because he really loves and trusts 100% once he get's comfortable. He needs a fenced yard just incase he got spooked, he does listen but he is always waiting and ready for somebody to yell at him and scare him off which must have been his past.
