“Can I tell you a secret? I love you already!!!”

Dexter has got to be one of the happiest dogs we’ve ever had. His little happy feet tap dance the second we walk into his room. He can barely contain his excitement when we approach his kennel, and his beautiful baby eyes look at us as if to say, “Come here. Can I tell you a secret? I love you already!” Well, Dexter, we love you, too.

When Dexter enters the play yard, it’s time for zoomies. And zoomies. And more zoomies. He will pause long enough for some back scratches and a full body hug or two, then he’s back at play bowing, tap dancing, and zooming his handsome little body all around the place. You can’t see him in action and *not* smile. Actually, you can’t even meet him without smiling. We dare you to try. Those happy feet get us every time.

At about 3 years of age, Dexter is still a young one who has overcome some of his puppy habits but not others. He will jump up for attention, and he certainly has energy to spare. But his sheer exuberance is a personality trait, and we don’t see that fading away anytime soon.

Dexter arrived from California and is fully vetted and ready for a home now. We’re told that he is not good with cats. Dexter is dog selective -- with dogs his size, he wants to engage in play, but he will hold his own if a conflict arises. Because of his size and energy level, we suspect that he would do better in a home with older kids, so you’re welcome to bring the whole family in to meet him.

Our Adoption Process...

More information about adopting from the Meridian Canine Rescue:

No paperwork is required prior to meeting the dog(s).

Unless the dog is located in a foster home, which is indicated in his/her bio, you are more than welcome to come visit with the dog during our adoption hours. We are open Wed-Sun, 12-7, at 501 E Scenery Ln, Ste 100 in Meridian, ID.

Before finalizing an adoption, we ask that all family members living in the household, including any other dogs, participate in a supervised meet-and-greet at our location. We love getting the opportunity to talk with families and introduce them to the amazing dogs at our Rescue. This interaction gives us all a chance to get to know the dogs better and to discuss any potential challenges or concerns. We provide post-adoption support for life, so the on-site meet-and-greet is the first step to a great relationship.

We no longer breed label, as we don't DNA test and are instead focusing on the individual dogs and their personalities. We'd be happy to discuss this decision with you at the Rescue.

The adoption fee for each dog is set at $300 and is used to cover our expenses. The adoption fee for bonded pairs is $450, and we do offer 10% discounts for seniors, military/former military, and first responders. Because we receive no funding and have no vet clinic on-site, our standard adoption fee is set to recoup the money we've spent caring for your dog before you take him/her home.

All dogs are examined, spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped (with lifetime enrollment). We provide additional medical care as needed.

Once an MCR dog, always an MCR dog. We will support you and your dog for the rest of his or her life. We've gathered resources and references, so there are plenty of people to help you if you have any questions or concerns after bringing your new family member home.
