weet docile Petunia....scared of her own shadow needed saved and we had to say YES. This 3-4 year old girl is precious but has zero confidence. Appears scared of most things except other dogs - she loves other dogs.
Petunia will be moving on 7/21 to one of our dog trainers to live and learn to be a well balanced non fearful dog. A home with another confident dog is needed for this girl as she will take the lead from them and be able to feel more safe.

Adoptable Petunia was out enjoying a little time in the field this morning. She's a really sweet dog that is very fearful. She hasn't been exposed to many new people or things in her life so everything is scary. She's made progress since she's been here but she is going to require a calm home with a patient adopter that will keep working to help her overcome her fears. Other dogs help her be more confident so at least one other dog in the house would be good. She is not at all aggressive. Her fear puts her in flight mode so a secure yard and home is essential. Working with a dog like Petunia is definitely a process but the rewards are great when you see progress. We know because our little guy Jack was a lot like her when he first came to us 7 years ago. He's come so far and we've never regretted adopting him. Adoption fee 125.00

UPDATE 10/16: From Petunia's foster home: In the handful of weeks that Miss Petunia has been in our home, she has made some extraordinary progress!! With tons of help from my fur family, she is starting to learn how to just be a dog. She is coming to us willingly for treats and affection, she's spending time socializing instead of hiding, and is actually showing happy body language when she sees us. She gets excited to go for car rides and long line outings in quiet, out of the way places....especially if there is water to play in!! She still has a long way to go trusting people, and learning how to relax and cope with novel situations, but the swift progress she has shown here makes us so optimistic and happy for this incredibly sweet, silly girl's future!

About FIDO's Companion Rescue Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We operate out of Avon, Ohio. We primarily rescue dogs from the Lorain County Dog Kennel and other Dog Pounds before they are put to sleep. We secondarily assist with taking in homeless stray dogs and funding the spay/neuter of homeless dogs and cats for other independent local rescuers and vet clinics who take them in off the street and work to rehome them. Lastly, we provide and fund the transportation for all adopted dogs going to vet clinics for the Mandatory Spay & Neuter Program at the Lorain County Dog Kennel.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Our rescued animals are kept in foster homes or boarding facilities primarily on the west side of Cleveland until loving forever homes can be found. Please remember we are all VOLUNTEERS who work full-time jobs. We will do our best to return your emails/calls within 24 hours.

Our Adoption Process...

If you wish to adopt one of our great pets, go to our website at and submit an application on our adoption page. Once your application is submitted and approved, we can set up a time for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. We do not operate on a first come, first serve basis. We strive to find the most compatible home for our dogs and look for adopters who are certain they want to make a lifetime commitment to our rescued dogs. We also require a home visit as a part of our adoption process. If we do not have an animal that interests you, we may be able to help put you in contact with the many other organizations with which we network. ADOPTION FEES - Individual fees apply based on each dog rescued. See individual dog's bio for adoption fees that apply.
