About Forest

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Red
  • Current Size: 70 Pounds
  • Current Age: 3 Years 1 Month (best estimate)


Forest is a 3 year old, 70lb Male purebred Rhodesian Ridgeback who wants to rescue a loving, active family in need of an amazing canine companion. Forest is a handsome, athletic and sweet boy who loves to lounge just as much as he loves being active. 

Forest is good with other dogs and is sweet with his humans he gets to know. However, at home Forest prefers a relaxed environment, with a steady routine, and little commotion. So we believe it would be best for him to start in a home without kids. He would be okay with another dog in the home, if the dog has good listening skills and will relax when Forest is ready to chill. 

 While Forest is crate trained, he does like to protest a bit when first being left alone in there. With a little patience, he calms down and relaxes. He is also house trained and does a great job of letting his people know when he needs to go out. 

He enjoys a good nap on the couch as well as stretching out in a sunspot outside. Forest would appreciate a big yard, but would do equally well in a home that likes to go for regular walks. He does love the great outdoors, but it doesn’t always love him back. Forest struggles with allergies and is on special food and Benadryl  to help with his itchy skin. 

The ideal person for this fellow is confident with big dogs and is not a first time dog owner. Someone that is a compassionate parent, who also understands the importance of being a calm leader for this big sweetheart. He would love to take classes with his person to help build their relationship as they get to know each other.

More about Forest

Good with Dogs, Is Not Good with Kids

The breeds of our dogs and cats are a "best guess." We often do not know what mix they are and have to base it on what we think they look like, and base it on breeds often found in the area they came from. Most of our dogs who have gotten DNA tests done are 4-10 breeds mixed together. Because their breed mix is a guess we cannot guarantee a "full grown size" of many of our younger animals.
