Meridian Pet of the Week


Teddy, 4, is a shy guy is looking for a quiet home with respectful adults. Teddy is just about the sweetest pup around — once he gets to know you — and would make a fantastic companion for someone with a low-key lifestyle.

Teddy tends to be afraid of new people, kids, and other animals. With time and respect, he blossoms into a fun-loving, affectionate, playful dog. Teddy absolutely loves to go for walks, and he behaves very well on leash. But his favorite pastimes all include toys. Squeakers are amazing — Teddy perks right up when he hears that familiar sound. And fetch is basically the best game ever invented in the history of the world.

Teddy is house- and crate-trained. He used a dog door in his previous home, so may need some help learning how to ask for potty breaks in a new home if it doesn’t have a doggy door. He’s fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped.

Meet Teddy or other dogs at the Meridian Canine Rescue and fill out an application. The rescue’s location is 501 E. Scenery Lane in Meridian. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Call 208-794-0944 or go to
