Meeka's Story...

Meeka is a doll! She loves a good belly rub, gives out puppy kisses left and right and is, in general, a big lover. She's going to crawl into your lap AND your heart the minute you meet her. Meeka loves to play with other pups and she is a quick learner! She has a ton of energy in short bursts and her mind is ready to eat up all you have to teach her. Meeka was born in Feb. 2012, so she's just a young pup, eager to please and ready to go! Like all dogs, Meeka will benefit from additional socialization and training. After daily exercise and play, she's the queen of the couch and will spend the day lounging around at your side. Meeeka is the kind of dog that always likes to be in contact with you, whether it's sitting and leaning against your leg, or stretching a paw to touch you while she's napping. She's a love-bug.


She is currently loving life in her foster care home, after four months spent in a shelter kennel, and she's so happy to be fostered with another dog! She LOVES him! Chase, tug and wrestle until she’s panting and flat out tired! A home with another energized pup would be great so they could play with each other, but don't count her out if you don't have another dog. She's a great companion, and will make a great jogging partner and playmate. She is not fostered with cats, but we assume like almost any puppy, if she is introduced slowly to a cat familiar with dogs (and okay with them!), she should do fine with some training. Meeka is a striking girl with flashy white markings and a grey/black brindled coat. She is gorgeous! Meeka has been spayed, is up-to-date on her shots, is microchipped, has been given a recent fecal test (negative for worms) and tested for heartworm. Give Meeka the home she's been dreaming of and you'll be so glad you did! Adoption fee: $75.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.


Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to info@pawsforliferescue.org to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meeka, a Troy Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Troy, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
