Meridian Pet of the Week: Jax


Jax, 3, arrived at the rescue from a shelter in California where, reportedly, he got into a fight at least once with another dog so a dog-free home would be best for Jax. He also spent some time in a temporary foster home where he met cats and did well. His history concerning house- and crate-training is unknown but he does keep his kennel at the rescue pretty clean.

Jax can be a little cautious around new people, and because of his hesitance a home with no small children might be best. Once Jax gets comfortable in his environment, though, he wants to play and get loves.

Meet Jax 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 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Call 208-794-0944 or go to
