Meet Forrest: Totally Labradorable!

Forrest is a lovely little Lab. When you first meet him he’s a bit shy, inquisitive, and curious. Turn around and you’ll see him, softly padding behind you on his big black paws, just wanting to be around you. No fuss, no worry. That’s our Forrest.

All it takes however, is a few belly-rubs and a treat or two, and the bold, adventurous Forrest comes out. He absolutely loves splashing around in the paddling pool, especially when it’s warm. He’ll start running around in a circle when he thinks there’s a tasty treat coming his way. Even when he’s sleeping, he’ll let you know what’s on his mind with plenty of little puppy snuffles.

Forrest is definitely a thinking dog’s puppy. He will sit, watch with his head tilted to one side, and learn before getting involved. Then, it’s all guns blazing – more belly-rubs and treats and he almost becomes a bit cheeky!

We think Forrest will become a brilliant hearing dog one day. Until then, he’s a lovely, cuddly Labrador puppy whom nobody can resist.

And finally… Forrest’s mum is Nellie, who was also a sponsor pup! From one generation of sponsor pups to the next!

Training progress: Anything for treats

Forrest is a bright little boy. He’s already learning his ‘sits’ and ‘downs’. This is in no small part because he loves treats. All Labradors love food! The more treats he gets, the more he learns. But a part of Forrest’s mind will always be on the bigger picture: he can learn, and learn well, but will always be ‘Labradorable’!

Will Forrest’s friendly nature help him become a hearing dog? Or will his love of treats be the key? Will he ever grow out of his adorable habit of tilting his head while he thinks? Sponsor Forrest today and find out!
