Petey is a neutered 4 year old boy who has spent the majority of his life without a family. Surrendered at 10 months old, he has been in the shelter ever since. Sadly Petey was overlooked again and again and years had passed. During that time Petey saw his bowls, blankets and toys as his world and became obsessed with them. He became more and more withdrawn into his small, limited world and after coming to us, has finally started opening up again. He needs an adopter who understands special needs dogs, and can help him learn to live in a house again and continue on with the training we have put into him. He is completely house broken, loves his crate and can be left alone without chewing anything or having accidents. Does great on the leash and knows some commands too. He loves agility, fetch, swimming, frisbee and hiking. He needs to be the center of attention so we recommend a home with no children or other pets. He becomes very protective over his person and his home. If you would like to give this boy a home of his own, and continue to help him learn how to be a dog again, please contact us!

About Forever Home Rehabilitation Center

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome to Forever Home Rehabilitation Center

Devoted to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs who are misunderstood

We pull dogs from shelters that are portraying issues and stress in the shelter enviroment that most families will pass up or not give a 2nd look to. We bring them to our rehabilitation center and socialize them with our pack of 20+ dogs. We work to make them well rounded, socialized and balanced before placing them up for adoption. We teach them all their basic commands, how to walk properly on a leash. We teach them how to approach new dogs and meet new people. We also will teach the new families how to keep them balanced. Our enviroment is very calm not like a shelter which makes the transition into a home a lot easier for the dog.
Forever Home was founded in 2009. Operated by animal behaviorists Toni Enright and Jamie Cochran.

With our expert understanding of dog behavior, We developed techniques to raise a pack of calm, submissive dogs.

In turn, the dog pack now helps Forever Home to balance misunderstood dogs.Without the pack, it would be impossible to rehabilitate dogs that are misunderstood in a shelter enviroment. We teach them how to be calm, to understand structure and to respect humans as the leader.
We challenge them to their fullness and put them in situation to help them overcome their fears.

Through our program we offer free guidance, support and training for the life of the dog to help you keep them stable. We know our dogs inside and out and what lifestyle they need to find them their forever home. We will match our dogs to the perfect family

Our Adoption Process...

All of the dogs featured here have been thoroughly evaluated and are ready to be adopted into a loving forever home. Only once a dog is stable and balanced are they ready for adoption. All of our dogs reside at the facility for at least 2 months so they can be properly evaluated and rehabilitated before being placed for adoption.

All dogs are UTD on shots, neutered or spayed, micro-chipped, crate trained, leash trained, basic obedience command trained, and are trained to run on a treadmill and beside a bike. Most importantly, all of the dogs at the Sanctuary know how to happily and peacefully co-exist with a pack of dogs, cats, and other small animals. When our dogs are ready for their forever homes, we review all adoption applications and perform a final home inspection to ensure that our dogs are placed in the right home. For every adoption client we offer free training and advise for every adopted dog to help keep them happy and balanced in their new family.

If you are interested in any of our dogs please e-mail us at for an application and information on our facility.
