My story

Hi, I'm Goose. I had a hard start in life and was very isolated from the world in a yard with my siblings and parents, so I am tentative about new situations. I need a little time to warm up to new people, other pets, anything unfamiliar but I have enjoyed the company of a small dog, a cat, and the neighbor's young children at my previous home. Due to some neglect during puppyhood, I have some deformation on my front leg but I get around just fine, and my vet said not to mess with it because it's functioning and I'm not in pain. As is typical for my breed, I am quite intelligent. I catch on quickly to what you are asking of me and I am eager to please you. I am also very loyal and I will bond very deeply with my forever family. I would like to find a family that will let me live inside with them and give me lots of love and exercise for the rest of my long life. I hope it's not impossible. Will YOU consider me?

If you are interested in meeting Goose, please download the Adoption Questionnaire, fill it out and fax it back to us at (310) 362-0321. You can also meet this and/or other available dogs at our weekend adoptions.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.
