What are the best things about your dog?
Forrest is the most loyal friend you can ask for. He’s goofy, playful, and full of energy. He loves being outside, hiking, and running circles around his doggy sister. But let’s be honest, he really loves the couch. He also won’t go to sleep unless he’s tucked in under the covers.
Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Hiking, walks in the park, tug of war, and instigating play time with his sister Willow.
Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Just the typical day to day! He is a comforting constant in our lives.
How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Forrest can be reactive on a leash. We’ve worked very hard to make him more comfortable and less fearful. He really benefitted from canine coach’s dog to dog socialization class. I think there are still some folks that assume he’s “aggressive” when truly he’s fearful and just wants to protect himself and me. He has made great progress and most people absolutely adore him for his real personality.
Does your dog have any nicknames?
Booger, Bud, Fo-Rast
