Hey Forrest, you can stop running now – you’re our Adoptable Dog of the Week! Forrest is an adult male Labrador Retriever mix from Glen Morgan, West Virginia. He is already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Forrest’s Story:

Ahhhhh, Forrest. What can we say? This is one Casanova. He was the quintessential neighborhood tramp but made friends wherever he went. He had many temporary homes in many yards and played with neighborhood children. Never staying for long; he eluded us multiple times. To our knowledge, we have rescued and sent two of his litters off to better lives. Though he makes beautiful babies, we we’ve had him neutered. Forrest is a master escape artist. He can climb most any fence or kennel but he is content to be leash walked and is a wonderful house dog. He does well with puppies (no doubt because he likely expects they could be his own). Despite all of this, our rambling man is quite a catch. He is a loving and handsome boy who is finally ready to retire from the road and settle down. A reformed rogue, this lover is ready to stop being a runner and we feel that he was absolutely worth the chase.
