Friendly and loving — that’s Forrest. At approximately 4 years old, this calm and gentle, large, tan and white male, hound mix is a real sweetheart. He’s very much in need of owner(s) who will love him, give him attention and care, feed him good, nutritious food, provide lots of exercise in a fenced area or on a leash and obedience training so he knows what’s expected of him. Forrest deserves a good, loving forever home where he will be a faithful companion and pet. Come spend a little time with Forrest, ID No. 0058, and see for yourself what a wonderful dog he is.
