Pet of the Week

Why would a dog be named after Forrest Gump? Suppose he was found as a stray and demonstrated these qualities: a trusting nature and a gusto for life. Thus, this little Chihuahua mix came to be known as Forrest. While initially somewhat timid, he is now eager for walks. At 18 months, he is healthy, neutered and house-trained. Forrest is not a barker and behaves well with other dogs. Volunteers love to cuddle this 9-pound charmer and wonder why he remains unadopted after six months of shelter residency. Forrest would make an ideal pet in almost any household. His photo shows off a new collar, which he hopes will be his lucky charm — proving that sometimes a vanilla-colored dog is the best choice in a box of chocolates! Forrest's adoption fees are discounted 25% all week when you mention this announcement. For more information, call (714) 536-8480 or visit
