Meridian Pet of the Week: Sparky


Sparky, 4, is a special little guy looking for a calm, patient, quiet adopter who will help him to adjust to his new surroundings. He doesn’t do well with kids, and he has a hard time coping with sudden movements and the constant changes to his surroundings. Sparky has warmed up to several people at the shelter.

Sparky had been adopted from and then returned to his previous shelter because of his behaviors around kids. He will need to go to an adult-only home. The word it he is good with dogs and cats and that he’s housetrained.

Meet Sparky or other dogs at the Meridian Canine Rescue and fill out an application. The rescue’s new location is 501 E. Scenery Lane, Meridian. Hours are noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Call 208-794-0944 or go to
