My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

Forrest is a gentle, sweet, loving boy who listens well. He has a gorgeous brindle coat and a thoughtful, intelligent look about him. He's going to be a BIG boy, over 100 lbs. Forrest is a sensitive soul, so no raised voices please :) He loves to play and enjoy life and is going to be the perfect dog for the right family! He's good with dogs, cats and great with kids. Forrest could also be placed as an only dog. He’s working on his house manners, including leash and crate training. Forrest is one of the puppies dubbed the “Forest Litter” because they were discovered abandoned in a rural forest in Louisiana at 6 weeks old. Help this beautiful boy find his furever home with kindness, warmth and lots of love!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
