Anyone looking to adopt a cat? You know, a low maintenance kind of guy, who really just needs you to feed him and maybe show him some attention once in a while. (We do know all cats aren’t like this.) Well, we happen to have a cat disguised as a dog, and his name is Stewie. He’s not scared of us -- he’s just not interested. Humans? Eh.

We know, we know. It’s not the most promising start to a bio. But here’s the thing: we think there’s something more to Stewie. He’s apathetic now, but will he always be? Is he just waiting for his people to show up? Will he become more affectionate once he’s out of this crazy environment? Who knows. What we’ve seen here makes it pretty clear, though, that Stewie will need a dog savvy handler. He’s quick, and he likes to hide. Handling him is difficult simply because he doesn’t really want you to get close. Again, he’s not really all that fearful. And he’s not aggressive. He just likes his space.

Stewie’s attitude toward humans is nothing like his feelings toward other dogs. He LOVES them. He lights up when other dogs are around, and he’s totally a social butterfly. We suspect that a home with other dogs who can teach him how to be part of a family and how to get close to humans would be a great fit for this little guy.

Stewie is about 2 years old. Here’s what we learned from the previous shelter: “He is about a 7lb dog that took animal control about a week to catch him, he was dumped at a housing development We have had him a little over 2 weeks now and he has finally let me pet him only a few times yesterday, he has trust in other dogs big and small, our building is setup to where he can still go out for playtime with others. he just doesn't have much trust in humans (has not bitten anyone, we do not push him to trust us.)”

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.
