Forklift is handsome, adorable, and quite the brainy little guy -- learning "sit" and "shake" on his first day at TOP Dog class.

"Forklift has the sunniest disposition," said one of his besties at APA! "He's clever, funny, and loves to make you laugh."

Forklift is house-trained and thrives in homes with adults and older kids. He loves going on neighborhood walks, riding in cars, and running zoomies inside a play yard. He also loves belly rubs, snuggles, and being rolled in blankets. He gets a kick out of playing with squeaky toys and enjoys frozen treats and peanut butter-filled Kongs.

And he loves water! His dream home would have a yard with a kiddie pool where he could run, play, and soak in the pool.

Come meet Forklift and see how quickly you fall in love! And check him out at @Adopt_Forklift!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
