My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Are you looking for a Robin to your Batman? Someone ready to heed the call for any mission on the horizon, who will not rest as long as there is an adventure to be had?! Are you a fan of dogs that love exercise, structure, work, and games? If this sounds like someone you've been looking for, you may not need to look any further...

This incredibly handsome, intelligent boy is Willard, and he is looking for his forever home. Willard is a very active, smart, blue-collar type of guy who would thrive in an environment that can keep his brain and body busy. An ideal home for Willard will be one that can provide him with activities that satisfy all of his instinctual needs and has experience with highly driven herding dogs.

Willard is a country boy at heart so he'd love a big space to play in and to not be bothered by the hectic city life. Because of his strong instinctual need to herd objects or people in motion, we do not recommend a home with other pets or children.

Willard would love to have hoomans of his own who will interact with him daily, cuddle with him, and give him plenty of enrichment to keep his mind busy and his body active (and keep him out of trouble from boredom). As we've mentioned before, Willard is pretty much a genius. He's a hard-working boy and he is so smart, eager to learn, and full of potential. This boy also loves to learn and can master tricks in a blink of an eye!

Willard is ready for a long-term commitment and is hoping to find someone looking for the same. He is very affectionate, playful, goofy, athletic, loyal, and ready to find a home and family to call his own.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

Read the dog's bio on our website and submit an inquiry. We have limited resources, so please give us a few days to get back to you.



We'll contact you to schedule a brief (15-30 min) remote consultation to virtually introduce you to the dog.


Meet the Pet

After the consultation, we'll arrange for a meet-and-greet at our facility. If it goes well, you may be able to adopt that day.

Additional adoption info

Meridian Canine Rescue operates by appointment only. We kindly ask potential adopters to visit our website,, for the most current information about our adoption process and our available dogs.
