A Call to Arms... (for loving)

Some of you may remember a few months ago the wigshop made a difference, we helped rescue a loveable little creature named Lulu, who now resides with a certain blogger named Lo...

And today we have another opportunity, we need your help. Please pass this post around, retweet it etc and help us find a home from this little guy. He needs some loving and I'm sure our readers can help, he even wrote a letter (seriously, I did not create this part this is straight from the horses mouth... per se.)

******************************************************



Hello Knoxville! My name is Forrest and I'm an adorable beagle puppy who was hit by a car last week. I came out of the accident with a fractured pelvis, but not to worry, my veterinarian says that with enough time I will be healed and as good as new. Unfortunately, my previous owner did not have the time to dedicate to my healing, so he brought me in to be euthanized shortly after the incident. I was less than an hour away from meeting my maker when I decided to turn on the charm and convince the nice people at the vet clinic that I was worth saving. It worked! Now I am looking for a new family who has the time and commitment to help me grow big and strong. I will never be the fastest dog on the block, and might end up with a little arthritis when I get old, but I promise that with the right family I will grow to be the sweetest dog in east Tennessee.

Woof woof,
Forrest




Now that you are well manipulated emotionally either get this dog as a late valentines day present for yourself or a loved one or help us find someone who will help him.

You can email the wigshop if you want to know more, but please hurry he only has a stay for 24 more hours... not really but hurry. Here is another picture just in case you weren't already a pile a mush.

We have passed along any emails we received to the vet who is current caring for Forrest and she will be coordinating meet and greets shortly. Please feel free to continue to contact if you're still interested, we'll let you know when he's officially been adopted!

Thanks

He is adorable! My cat wouldn't tolerate him, but I am posting and retweeting as soon as I finish this comment. Thank you so much for helping save him.

Holy mackerel, that is one cute pup. I wish I could take him since I am about to move into a neighborhood and all, but I have about two weeks of busy, hectic transition time and am training for a marathon (which apparently takes a lot of time), so I don't think that I am the right candidate for the job. But he is so cute I just want to take him. Argh. I will post a tweet too.

i love beagles and would love to adopt this dude but lily monster (my lab) is enough dog for me. i hope this fella gets a good home soon.

benjamin said...

i vote luke pettit takes him. i'm texting him right now.

benjamin said...

what shelter is he living in?

benjamin said...

wow, sorry to be dense. are you keeping him at your place, pol?

The Pol said...

He is not at a shelter, he is living with the vet that saved him.

Keep the questions coming! Thanks!

Lo said...

pol- i'm not falling for your tricks again! actually lulu is a good dog, but she just learned how to jump over the fence that we built to keep her in the yard. why don't you take forest and make him a squirrel dog?

That puppy has the innocent puppy-dog eyes down well! Good thing I have plenty of practice resisting my own dog's puppy eyes.

That last picture kills me. If a puppy didn't equate to a child in my mind, I'd take him in a heartbeat.

Lucas said...

ben, you're so right. it's a huckleberry puppy, for certain. i would absolutely love to have this dog. if he's still available i'm sold. pick up this weekend? saturday A.M.?

B said...

get him, Luke!!

benjamin said...

luke to the rescue!

AlwaysanEm said...

has he been adopted?

benjamin said...

any word, cullin? luke said he emailed you yesterday...

he told me last night he'd love to have him but he understands if someone else in knoxville asked first. he thinks he would be a natural fit in chattanooga though :)

AlwaysanEm said...
