Here’s Vinny! This shy little guy is 1-2 years old and was recently transferred to us from another shelter in Idaho. Here’s what we were told:

“Last guy up is Vinny. He is very much a Velcro dog. He is also a recent return after 3 months of adoption. He is very shy when meeting new people. When they brought him back they said he was very scared of men, not house trained (didn't try crate training) and didn't like other dogs.. Since he has been back, he hasn't had any accidents in his kennel and goes out with the other 3 little bugs with no problems.”

We’ve let Vinny, Eve, and Stewie play in the yard a few times since they arrived, and they all seem to do pretty well. Eve’s boss lady for sure. Vinny followed his friends around at first, as he was pretty scared of this place. With time, he gets more comfortable with new people, though he definitely has his favorites here. Once he lets his guard down, Vinny plays like a puppy, romping around the yard and throwing toys around. We’re excited to for his future -- the puppy side of him will be an amazing thing to see once he’s in a home with a family who loves 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.
