On Friday in Solon, Forrest relaxed as his new owner, Robin Stone, strummed on her guitar. They have only lived together two days.
"You can see just how relaxed he is. he walked right in the door and went right to the master bedroom and got on the bed like he knew where he was," said Stone.
"It's shocking it's outrageous I can't imagine somebody chaining a dog to a tree and shooting them and after meeting him and seeing just what a total sweetheart he is, it's incomprehensible," Stone said.
"Unlike anything I'd ever seen my dogs kind of squealed like little girls, they were so excited about it, and they ran up to him as if they knew him already."
