Pet of the Week: Forrest Gump, an affectionate boy who loves to run, Forrest run

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get. And no pup understands that better than Forrest Gump, a sweet and cuddly young boy who needs some TLC after being neglected by his previous owner.

Here’s what Forrest’s friends at PetConnect Rescue had to say about him:

Meet Forrest Gump! Forrest is 1 to 2 years old, 25 pounds and likely a Chihuahua/beagle cross. Forrest came from a horrible hoarding/neglect situation and was practically bald from mange.

Now Forrest is healthy; his hair has grown back, and he has learned to be loved on and petted. He is very devoted to his person and will follow you anywhere once he gets to know you. He would love to curl up on the couch or in bed with you. He also loves to play with other dogs and is so funny to watch scamper across the yard!

Forrest will need a patient adopter, preferably with a fenced-in yard, who will let Forrest get to know them and his new home. Forrest gains confidence with other dogs and would love a playmate but could do well as an only dog as well. He is housebroken and crate trained and eager to find a family to love!

Could you be the Lieutenant Dan for this Forrest Gump? (Watching the film is recommended prior to adoption.)
