ARE YOU AN EXPERIENCED DOG PERSON, LOOKING TO HAVE JUST THAT ONE SPECIAL DOG?  JOEY WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU!

This amazingly handsome pooch came to us from a local shelter back in June 2014, when he was about 1 1/2 years old.  Joey absolutely adores people and is as loving and affectionate as can be.  Shhh, this should be a secret, but Joey wants you to know that he spends his nights snuggling and snoozing in bed with his foster parents.  He pays close attention to people and happens to give the best hugs and kisses.  Joey is crate-trained, housebroken and aims to please.  This smart guy will sit on command and is treat-motivated.  He's a very good traveling companion in the car and will want to spend as much time with you as possible.  His leash manners could use some work, but this is easily remedied with training and use of a proper harness.    

So, why has this fantastic dog been waiting so long for his happily-ever-after?  It boils down to this...we are being extremely picky about who we send Joey home with.  Although he is indeed a most wonderful dog, Joey isn't for everyone.  He's quite selective when it comes to other dogs; he either likes or strongly dislikes new dogs on sight.  If he dislikes a dog, he will try to act-out aggressively.  He has done well with friendly, submissive female dogs, as well as male dogs of like size who are laid back and give him space.  He doesn't take kindly to 'in your face' or pushy dogs at all and hasn't done well in meetings with small dogs or cats.  

Joey will need an experienced owner who completely understands that, while he is a treasure, he must be watched closely and handled properly in the presence of other animals.  This is not a guy for doggy parks or leisurely strolls around a neighborhood when other dogs are out and about.  Care will also need to be taken on visits to the vet, as he'll need to be kept away from other animals in the clinic.  Ideally, Joey's new home should have a decent sized yard with a privacy fence that prohibits him from seeing neighboring dogs or animals passing nearby.  

To sum it up, Joey is all about people and loves spending time with adults and children alike.  He is completely submissive and accommodating with people; not a mean bone in his body.  He snuggles and plays with the children in his foster home, showering them in hugs and kisses.  To meet Joey is to love him, and we are confident the right forever home is out there.  If you are looking to have that ONE special dog as your best friend and loyal companion, Joey's waiting to meet you.  He'll offer you a heart as big as the sun and all the fuzzy cuddles you need.



All of the dogs/cats listed are located in or near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Adoption fees are $245 for dogs ($95 for Seniors 8 years+) and $60 for cats, to help cover vet bills for spay/neuter of all adoptable pets as well as getting them up-to-date on their basic vaccinations, and for starting heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.  Puppies and kittens will go into adoptive homes as Foster-to-Adopt until old enough to have spay/neuter surgery.  No pet will be officially adopted without being spayed/neutered and vaccinated (unless there are health risks in doing so).

We will require an approved on-line application which is available on our website at ForeverLoveRescue.com. Be prepared for a Meet-and-Greet and a basic home check to be done on or before adoption day, to ensure that the pet can be safe in the new home and that everyone involved is comfortable with each other.  Please feel free to call or text Stephanie at 717-752-5698 with any questions, or reach us by email at stephanie@foreverloverescue.com.  Be sure to check us out on Facebook at Forever Love Rescue and LIKE€ our page. SAVING ONE DOG OR CAT MAY NOT CHANGE THE WORLD...BUT FOR THAT ONE DOG OR CAT, THE WORLD CHANGES FOREVER.  Please, Don't Shop, ADOPT A BEST FRIEND!  <3
