Introducing Forrest!

This little guy is a 5-6 year old small/medium terrier mix, and weighs approximately 20-25lbs ! Don’t let a little gray on the muzzle fool you, he is still very active! He loves people, car rides, walks, treats, and a nice comfy couch to stretch out on! Forrest does well with other dogs, cats, and kids. He is an impressive jumper, and would need a high fence or a leash for his outside time.

Forrest loves to be close to people, so a family is at the very top of his holiday wish list! He would do great with a family who could include him in vacations, and travel! He makes a great shotgun rider!

Forrest is kennel trained, mostly potty trained, walks extremely well on a leash, and is ready to get comfy in his new home! He has been brought current on core vaccines, has been dewormed, given monthly flea and tick preventative, and is neutered!

his adoption fee is $85 but his potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.
