Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00298Azula (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult


    Meet Azula. This beautiful lady has lived a lot of life in her 5-6 short years. We decided to take her in when we found out her story. Here it is: 'Azula has been in and out of our shelter many times in the past years. Sadly her owner was not very responsible and she lived in a drug house and her owner was shot and killed in a drug deal about a month ago. We're guessing Azula has been through a lot. Azula has been with another dog at our shelter and did ok but did show some resource guarding, we think with her strength and past, she might do best being an only dog but that could possible change with the right dog. She is a beautiful, strong ... (Read More)girl, seems to like the company of people and the staff at the shelter she is coming from would always bring her into the office to visit with everyone. She gets really into playing with her toys and LOVES to chew on bones. She enjoys walks but needs a strong hand. Azula is house trained, we believe her to be approximately 5 years old.' When she arrived, we figured a serious play session was in order. Azula immediately went through every single toy in our play area, romping and rolling around, and happily chewing the squeakers out of the biggest toys in the bin. A few stuffed toys may or may not have been destroyed, but who cares? We'd say she deserves to be carefree and playful for a while. Don't you agree? (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00261Duke (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy


    Our newest stud muffin, Duke, arrived from Kansas. This guy is energetic, strong, and super friendly to people. He has the softest coat you've ever felt and he's ready for a full body hug when you are. Duke is about 1 year old. Here's what we know: 'Duke came in as a stray but his owner did not reclaim him (they only owned for a month), he has jumped up on his daughter and scratched her arm so they didn't want him back. Duke is a pretty easy going boy, his favorite things to do are to play with toys, roll around in the grass and sit around. Although he enjoys being pet, he's not a needy dog and seems to do fine just hanging out. Duke has ... (Read More)shown a prey drive for other pets, especially small ones in that he'll crouch down low when he sees them come then jump up and bark. We don't believe he is dog friendly but have never really tried him with other dogs. I believe he is house trained but am not positive. Duke is a beautiful, healthy, strong dog, he enjoys walks but should have a gentle lead or some way to keep him from pulling as he is strong. He'd do best in a home with a fenced yard to keep him and other dogs safe.' Stop by the Rescue if you're interested in meeting Duke. We'd love to introduce you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00172Tank (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult


    Do you happen to have a rope toy? A big one? The kind with a ball at one end? Because if you do, I think we should play with it right now. That's my favorite kind of toy, and boy oh boy would we have some fun. Tug-of-war with a rope toy -- there's just nothin' better. I'm Tank, and as you can tell, I love to play. I could tug on a rope toy for hours, but these wimpy humans can't handle it. Maybe you should introduce me to your dog so that I can have a buddy to romp around with, too. That way, we can all tire each other out. I came here from Pocatello originally after my family could no longer take care of me. I'm only 6, and I'm a pretty ... (Read More)good boy. Sometimes, I do like to talk a little. Just to let my people know that there are other dogs or strangers nearby. It's my responsibility to take care of them, you know. If you want to meet me, then maybe you could be my new person. I guess I'm waiting here until someone decides to take me to my 'forever home.' I hope I don't have to wait too long. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00143Sierra (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Today's a good day. Do you know why? Because I'm available for adoption, and I just know my family is coming for me. I can't wait to meet them!! Would you like to know a little bit about me first? OK, that's fair. First things first: I love to dance. And I would love to dance for you. I'm told that I'm pretty good -- I've got some serious moves. Second, I'm friendly with all the people I meet. I'd probably be fine with kids, too, but I haven't met any here yet. Third, I'm 5 years old, which is exactly the right age. I'm over the puppy thing (gosh, those years were interesting -- I did some things I'd rather not mention here, but oh well, you ... (Read More)live and you learn), and I'm just settled into adulthood. We've got lots of time to spend together like civilized adults. And fourth, well, I'm just the best. You should seriously adopt me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00141Holly (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy


    Guess who's feeling better? Holly!!! We were all collectively holding our breaths last week when her heart stopped beating. She endured quite a lot in that 24 hour span of time -- cardiac arrest, seizures, blindness. But over the past week or so, Holly has been fighting her way back to health. She's regained some eyesight, and her motor skills improve each day. Looking at her now, you'd never guess what she's gone through. So, for us, this moment is bittersweet: we're announcing that Holly is available for adoption. We are all very protective of this little one and reluctant to say goodbye to her, but if anyone deserves a happy ending, it's ... (Read More)Holly. Call us at 208-794-0944 to find out more. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00121Jennie (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    And here is our sweet girl, Jennie. This wallflower just arrived from Arizona where she just went through major dental surgery. Jennie only has one tooth left and had a full dental performed on April 4th (with two fistulas repaired), so she needs to only eat soft food for a while. Jennie is about 7 years old and about 8 lbs. Her rescuer/foster mom, Sue, reports, 'Jennie was an unclaimed stray from the Maricopa Animal Care and Control Shelter in Phoenix. Jennie is 8 pounds of love. She gives kisses and just loves to lounge on the couch watching tv. She doesn't quite know what to make out of her leash and she needs a housebreaking refresher ... (Read More)course. But, she is very smart and learns quickly. She lived with my four small dogs and LOVED them. I would place her with older children since she startles easily and would not like someone who doesn't know how to handle her gently. She will sit quietly in the car, but if given the choice, she would rather stay home.' We're moving Jennie into a foster home, where it's quieter, so please feel free to call us at 208-794-0944 if you'd like to schedule a meet-and-greet. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00057Downtown Julie Brown (female)

Fox Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Meet Downtown Julie Brown! (Yes, that's really her name.) This gal arrived on Annie's Rescue Ride all the way from Arizona. She is about 2 years old, and she rocked her kid tests today. Super affectionate and friendly, she also likes adults and other kids. We are still getting to know her, of course, but this gal is fully vetted and ready for people to come and meet her. We can't wait to introduce her to her new family! (PS: We know she's not a Fox Terrier but really have no clue what this pretty girl is made of... but I had to choose a breed to get her posted. :))

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00278Roko (male)

Redbone Coonhound Mix    Age: Puppy


    Sometimes, it takes a little extra time and effort to find the right home for our dogs. This is Roko, and he was adopted by the most amazing family. They've worked with him for a while now, but we've all come to the realization that Roko is better suited to a home without small children. And that's OK. We're sure his people are out there somewhere. Roko's family is fostering him for the time being. Here's what Nichole has to say: 'Meet Roko, a 1.5-year-old male Redbone Coonhound available for adoption through Meridian Canine Rescue. We are fostering him until he finds his forever family. Although we had hoped to adopt him ourselves, we have ... (Read More)determined that it would be best for him to be in a home without children under the age of 12. I have gotten to know Roko over the past month and he is a beautiful, sweet boy. My husband and I have taken him to work with us every day and he is content laying in his crate, watching people pass by his office window, rarely ever barking at them. In order to be content in his crate, he does require consistent exercise every day. I've been riding a Razor scooter to keep up with him on our morning walks! We typically finish the day with another walk that focuses on obedience training. He's starting to get the hang of it! This guy loves food and will literally jump through hoops to get it. Food puzzles, toys that make a strategy game out of eating treats, keep him busy in the afternoons. His incredible, well-bred nose can sniff out anything! True to being a hound dog, he does bay when he is anxious or if he sees a small animal he'd like to chase up a tree, but he is typically pretty quiet indoors. A structured environment that includes crate time in conjunction with recreational activities would suit him best. I'd imagine he'd get bored and start to howl if he was in a backyard all day. He's approximately 60 pounds of lean muscle and incredibly powerful. Our two boys, ages 5 and 7, absolutely love to be with him, but now that Roko has playfully knocked them over a few times, he's figured out that he is stronger than they are and has recently started to test his dominance over them around the house. Because of this, I believe that it would be best if he was in a family where he is physically, the smallest member of the household. I think he can overcome this once he gets adjusted to his new environment, with proper training. His adoption fee is $300. He's already neutered, microchipped and vaccinated! Please share this with any of your friends who may be interested in this specialized breed of dog. He deserves to be in a home that has an appreciation for his natural hunting instincts. Redbone Coonhounds are rare in Idaho; if fact, Roko actually came from Texas! Once he is adopted, I'd like to offer his new family a session with professional dog trainer, Teri, from Pooch Pros. She knows a lot about Roko and his temperament, and is looking forward to helping him transition to his new family. If you are interested in adopting him, call Meridian Canine Rescue: (208) 794-0944.' (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00226Ivan (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Five-year-old Ivan joined us on our last Wings of Rescue transport. He was flown in, along with his buddies Tigger and Roo, after we learned that they needed a rescue spot. All three dogs (plus several more) had been living in a home together, so we know that Ivan is good with other dogs. However, in this environment, we did have to separate Ivan from Tigger and Roo. Ivan was trying to be a tough guy and dominate the other two, and we decided they'd be better off apart. In a home environment, we suspect Ivan would enjoy some company, but he'll probably still want to be in charge of the show. Since he's a newer arrival, we haven't had the ... (Read More)opportunity to test Ivan with kids, and we don't know how he feels about cats. But you're more than welcome to introduce Ivan to your entire family at the rescue, and we'll see how they all get along. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00224Tigger (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy


    Tigger joined us on our last Wings of Rescue transport. He was flown in, along with his buddies Roo and Ivan, after we learned that they needed a rescue spot. All three dogs (plus several more) had been living in a home together, so we know that Tigger is great with other dogs. Like his best friend Roo, Tigger is somewhat timid. When meeting new people, he can take a minute to warm up. However, he's quick to gain confidence and show you affection once he learns that you're a friend. Tigger makes an excellent lap dog and hops up into your arms whenever he can. Because he's a newer arrival, we haven't had the opportunity yet to conduct ... (Read More)supervised meet-and-greets. We suspect that Tigger is good with older kids, but we're not sure how he feels about younger kids, cats, crates, etc. As we continue to get to know this 1-2 year old, we'll update his profile. In the meantime, come cuddle this guy yourself. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-07-00309Lucy (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Lucy needs a home! She made the long drive from Utah a couple of weekends ago, and she's been waiting in foster for her Ricky ever since. This sweetheart is one of the dogs who had been in need of urgent rescue placement, and when we saw her pretty face, we just had to take her in. Lucy has now been fully vaccinated, examined, and spayed. She is 4-5 years old, microchipped, good with dogs and cats, good with kids, and house-trained. So, she's kind of a rockstar. Lucy's foster mom, Barbara, sent the following notes: 'Very gentle Tendency to bond with one person but likes all humans Potty trained Likes to play ball and run outside, needs ... (Read More)exercise as she did not get much previously Good with other dogs but takes time to get used to them Good with cats, wants to play Spayed Knows sit, No, lay Wants to please Working with her to curtail jumping to get attention' If you're interested in meeting Lucy, please call the Rescue at 208-794-0944.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-05-00080Biscuit (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior


    A 9 year old gentleman, Biscuit joined MCR after being surrendered by a family who could no longer care for him. He is often timid and shy when meeting new people and needs to be adopted by someone who will respect his boundaries and offer him a quiet, calm environment. Biscuit is reportedly good with other dogs, and he previously lived in a home with children. He is both house- and kennel-trained. Since we've had Biscuit, we've found him to be easy to handle and walk, though he does give clear signals when a situation makes him uncomfortable. For that reason, we recommend a mature home.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Cedar joined us last weekend along with the rest of his friends from Utah. He is a very handsome 2 year old who needed a change of scenery to find his forever home. Microchipped, neutered, vaccinated, and vet check, this playful, friendly pup is ready to join your family. We haven't been able to test him with other dogs or with kids yet, but we will continue to update Cedar's bio as we get to know him. In the meantime, feel free to visit him at the Rescue -- bring your whole family!

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-05-00066Chica (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Itty bitty, teeny weeny -- Chica is like a little mouse in disguise as a dog. She is too funny -- pouncing and pawing your leg to be picked up, tucking herself right under your neck to get as close as possible. Chica is equally playful and cuddly, which we happen to think is a very winning combination. We don't have a lot of information about her yet, so we'll update this photo album in the next day or so. But feel free to come and cuddle this pocket-sized pup at the Rescue. She's been great with the men, women, and children she's met here so far.

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy


    Boo Bear, Bug-a-Boo...so many nicknames to choose from! This is our MPD: Most Playful Dog. He is soexcitedtoplaywithyourightnowpleaseletsgo. All puppy and all energy, Boo is friendly and bouncy and absolutely delightful. We have had so much fun running around the play area with this guy. He gets a serious case of the zoomies, and he will happily play with any toy you offer him. Seriously, if you're looking for a little fun in your life, you have got to come meet Boo. We haven't tested him with other dogs yet, and we have no idea what he thinks about cats. He was previously surrendered to a shelter in Utah because the family reported that the ... (Read More)young children in the home made him nervous. For that reason, he may do better in a more mature household, but at only 1 year old, we suspect that a dog-savvy handler could teach Boo to be more comfortable in new situations. Come meet him at the Rescue during our business hours. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy


    Oh, Lyla -- from the moment we saw your picture, we knew we wanted to help. We were contacted by a rescue out of Texas that was having trouble finding a permanent home for this Southern Belle. Lyla has been living in a foster home for a while (thanks, foster mom, for these gorgeous pics), but there weren't any interested adopters in Texas. So, we decided to bring Lyla and her new boyfriend Sunny all the way here to Idaho. This girl is approximately 1-2 years old, spayed, microchipped, vet checked, vaccinated, and so ready for her happy ending. Lyla is reportedly great with kids, though her energy level might make her better suited to a home ... (Read More)with older children, and she is good with bigger male dogs, like Sunny. Please feel free to come and meet this gorgeous lady at the Rescue. We're so glad to welcome her to Idaho. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Poor Owyn. Our hearts are breaking this week for our sad boy. Owyn was owner surrendered last weekend, and he spent several days curled up on the floor of his kennel. He was so sad, so depressed -- we were devastated for him. After three or four days of this, he finally started to trust us and to come to the front of the kennel to be let out. We're now seeing tail wags and receiving the occasional kiss. We're so grateful that he's doing better, but we don't want him to wait a moment longer for a family. Won't you come meet this boy? At only 2 years of age, Owyn here is ready to spend a lifetime with his new people. He is reportedly good with ... (Read More)dogs, cats, other animals (including chickens!), and kids of all ages. He's housetrained and so eager to please. Now that he's showing us more of his personality, we've come to see how quickly he can bond to people and how deeply he loves. Caring and sensitive, this boy really needs someone to commit to loving him for the rest of his life. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy


    One word to describe Chubby? Smart. If anyone is looking for a pup to train, to do some agility work, to learn a whole bunch of tricks and love every minute of his education...then Chubby is your man. Chubby is very treat-motivated and is focused on his handler. He has been a delight to romp and play with, but he settles right in and waits for some direction when you ask him to pay attention. At just 9 months of age, Chubby is a promising young student just bursting with potential. Because he was so scared at the shelter in Utah, and because we've spent the past several days completing his vet work, we have yet to test Chubby with other dogs ... (Read More)and with kids. Once we learn more about his temperament in those areas, we will update his bio. For now, feel free to come meet him at our Rescue. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-04-00103St Nick (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy


    I mean, come on. Just look at that face. What a hunky meatball of a dog! This is Saint Nick, and he has wiggled his big body straight into our hearts. Saint Nick arrived at a shelter in Utah as a stray back in November. He had no luck getting adopted there, and after several requests for rescue help, we agreed to take him in. The previous shelter reports that Saint Nick was very reactive to other dogs and to cats, so he may do better as the only man in your life. But that's OK -- he has personality for days. You really don't need anyone else. Saint Nick is very strong and needs some gentle direction when it comes to walks. He'd much rather ... (Read More)go his own direction, but this guy wants to be by your side (or, better yet, in your lap!) and doesn't mind settling into the groove after a few minutes. Because he is so big and so powerful, we recommend a dog-savvy, experienced handler. Also, Saint Nick comes with a bit of a rap sheet, and it's important that whomever adopts him is fully aware of his behaviors. Here's what we were told: 'St. Nick bit a male walker's arm when he was trying to get him out of his kennel to take him for a walk back in December. I am not too confident that the walker was savvy with his breed and may have frustrated him when he was trying to get his choke chain on. The excitement combined with a ton of testosterone running through his system I think made him lash out. The shelter decided to neuter him to see if it would help, and it really did! He has made such a remarkable turnaround since then! He hasn't shown any aggression, and calmed way down whenever anyone approaches his kennel. All he wants now is for someone to take him for a walk. He gets really excited to see people and walks very well on the leash after being out for a few minutes. He's a strong boy, so it's usually a man that walks him every day because our gal walker is probably 100 pounds soaking wet .' We have seen absolutely zero signs of aggression with this guy. We have been able to leash him and walk him, and we feel that he is people-friendly. He is fine with full body touching; in fact, he leans right up against you and begs for more back scratches. With the right family, we believe Saint Nick will have a happy, positive future. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00198Moo Goo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Do you remember the Utah transport from last weekend? And our last minute-addition to the trip? Yep, that was Moo Goo Gai Pan, and he's now ready for adoption. We bet you're wondering how he got his name. Apparently, Moo Goo Gai Pan (Moo Goo for short) was picked up as a stray in Utah. When he was found, he was busy enjoying a meal somebody had left behind in a Chinese food takeout container. And somehow, the name just suits him. He is quirky and delightful. Ready to run zoomies or to sit on your lap and people-watch, Moo Goo is the right size and temperament for just about everybody. We haven't tested this 2 year old with dogs or kids, but ... (Read More)he's been super friendly to men and women alike. Moo Goo seems like a well-adjusted, socialized little guy. And we know he has great taste in food. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00169Chonchos (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Got a box of tissues? Because you may very well need them. This is Chonchos. He is approximately 9 years old, and when we saw the post asking for a rescue to help this sweet senior guy, we had to say yes. He was at a shelter in Utah. Along with his best friend for life, Chip. The two were a bonded pair. We said we'd take them both. Then we got a phone call. Chip had been found in his kennel one morning, unresponsive. People rushed him to the vet, but it was too late. Chip had passed. And Chonchos remained, lost and sad without his partner. So when Chonchos arrived, we didn't have the heart to place him in a kennel during his initial hold ... (Read More)period. We just couldn't bear to see him alone. Instead, we found an amazing foster home for him, with one of our staff members. Kimber agreed to take Chonchos home and to give him some much-needed TLC during his week of rest. Kimber says, 'Let me start by saying I have never cared Pom's. This guy is a dream. He loves to be with People and other dogs. He is very sweet and kind. He is fully house trained and kennel trained. 'He has a cute little bear type growl to let you know he needs out. He comes when called, for the most part, he likes outside. Not much good at the sit, but he does stay when told. He will not last long!' Now, Chonchos is at the Rescue and hoping that his family will walk in very soon. He waits at the kennel door for people to come visit with him. He's waiting for you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00071Bradley (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy


    This hunky gentleman arrived from Utah last weekend and went straight to the coolest foster home ever. He is 1.5 years old and good with dogs, cats, and kids. Here's what foster dad Carson has to say: 'Bradley is such a cuddle bug! He has such a great young personality, he gets along with other dogs great both big and small. Cats aren't an issue either, he doesn't show any aggression or even much interest. He could use some more training on a leash due to him pulling. He does get very excited when he meets new people or just when you get home, so he does want to jump up. He does give 'love bites' when he gives kisses, so he may nip at you ... (Read More)but doesn't mean to. He'll need some basic training but he is so eager to please. He is kennel and house trained. No issues with crating him but he'd prefer to cuddle next to you at night ;). Bradley will make a great addition to anyone's family.' For now, Bradley will stay in his foster home. If you'd like to meet him, give us a call at 208-794-0944. *Please contact us for his adoption fee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-14-00127Bella (female)

Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix    Age: Adult


    Do you all remember the scared, beautiful girl who arrived at our Rescue last weekend? The one that had to immediately be transferred to a foster home because she wouldn't come into the building? Well, Bella is doing so much better in her foster home, and volunteer Kelly thinks she's ready to meet her forever family. If you're interested in getting to know Bella, please call the Rescue at 208-794-0944. She will remain in foster until she's adopted. Foster mom, Kelly, says, 'Bella is just waiting to be someone's perfect companion. Potty trained and beyond her chewing days, she now spends her free time rolling around on her back suggesting a ... (Read More)tummy rub. She makes quite a big lap dog, but an affectionate one at that. Bella loves the sight of her leash, the word 'walk,' and going outside for some quality time with or without another dog. She can be left alone in the house and is even willing to go into a quiet, comfortable kennel as long as she makes her own decision to do so. This chunky lovebug takes treats gently and is reported to have done well with children and cats in her previous home. She is a relaxed, medium-sized, medium energy level dog who will give you all of the love you can imagine.' *Please contact us for her adoption fee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-23-00210Ruger (male)

Bluetick Coonhound Mix    Age: Senior


    A 9 year old retiree, Ruger found himself at another Idaho shelter without a home to spend his golden years. We were more than happy to take him in and begin the search for an adopter. Ruger has lived in a foster home for the past week, but he is now available for adoption at the Rescue. Foster mom, Shirley, says, 'Ruger is doing wonderful, he is a gentle pup and gets along well with my dog. You can tell he has been trained, if you call (in most cases) he will come, sometimes his nose is working on a smell. If you tell him no he stops whatever he was doing (like trying to get on the couch), he now knows he doesn't get on the furniture. He ... (Read More)has had a bath and looks and smells great. He sleeps or rests on his blankets, something for his new owners should know, lay them down where you want him to (his space) and that is where he will lay. He has not used the kennel at all since he has been here, I have a blanket at the end of my bed and that is where he sleeps, and he sleeps all night. We did discover he cannot be in a house with a cat, he is a trained coon dog and reacted accordingly, which is too bad because this family friend (we brought him with us because they wanted to see him) fell in love with him. We were there two hours before he noticed the cat on the back of the couch and went after him, it took two of us to get him under control. He was not violent at all, but any small animal in the house would not be safe (hamsters etc).' *Please contact us for his adoption fee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00291Shilo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy


    Hello, human! Would you like to play with me? Please? Pretty, pretty please? 'Cause I am a PUPPY (just turned 10 whole months), and I want to be your friend. We could have so much fun together. Let's go for a car ride, OK? And then maybe we can go to the park, too. Even the dog park. I love other dogs. Seriously, they make me so happy. Especially when they'll play and wrestle with me. I haven't been around bigger dogs, though. Not sure how I feel about them. They would probably intimidate me. But every time I see a dog my size, I immediately decide that he needs to be my best friend. Right this second. People say I come on a little strong. I ... (Read More)say life's too short not to spend every minute wrestling and romping. I'm a little shy when I meet new people. Unfortunately, my last family didn't give me a lot of time to adjust to them. I warmed right up to the mom -- she was wonderful! But I wasn't so sure about the dad and kids, so after a few days, they brought me back. I thought I'd be bummed, but I kinda liked coming back to see all my friends again. I'm looking for a family that will keep me forever this time. And forever means forever. I will learn to love you all, and if you have other dogs, I think we'll do just fine together. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-13-00099Cash (male)

Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix    Age: Puppy


    This good-looking guy was recently surrendered by his family after they could no longer provide the type of lifestyle and home environment that he needs. Cash's family provided photographs and notes about him, so we will use that information to start his bio and will continue to update it as we get to know him. Cash is about 1.5 years old and is all Hound. He has a lot to say, and he is very curious and energetic. Cash has really enjoyed playing with friends at doggie day care, but in the home environment, Cash has displayed resource guarding tendencies (over food) with his canine sister. Cash will need a dog savvy adopter who is willing to ... (Read More)continue his training (he's very smart and has already graduated from several classes), to tolerate his louder than life personality, to provide lots of exercise, and to manage his food issues. In return, Cash will give you lots of love, will keep your life exciting at all times, and will be forever grateful to you for rescuing him. *Please contact us for his adoption fee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-06-00143Nala (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Miss Nala arrived recently from Arizona and has been hanging out in a foster home where it's calm and quiet. She is a timid, shy little girl, who would like nothing more than a peaceful home of her very own. Nala is 6-7 years old, spayed, utd on shots, and microchipped. She does very well with dogs and cats -- in fact, she is currently staying in a foster home with one of our recently adopted dogs, Fitz. Nala is both house and kennel trained as well. Because of her temperament, we're looking for a mature household without any kids, as Nala would prefer to be around adults who would respect her boundaries and move a little more slowly. It was ... (Read More)reported that Nala bit a child, but the records are confusing. She has shown no signs of aggression here. Nala was previously sheltered at a facility in Arizona, and during her stay, she became pregnant. Nala had one fetus about 28 days old when the county shelter spayed her. We know that Nala has been through a lot of upheaval and that explains why she doesn't like to be picked up from the front and why she's reluctant to move out of her safe kennel space when she meets new people. Once Nala decompresses in a home, she is an absolute love and wants to hang out on the couch. If you're interested in meeting Nala, please call the Rescue at 208-794-0944. *Please contact us for her adoption fee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-13-00229Gracie (female)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy


    Meet Gracie, the cutest little Rhodesian Ridgeback you could ever meet. She's a 1 year old sweetheart, with lots of love and licks for her family. Gracie is full of energy for a game of catch out in the yard, but when she comes inside she knows how to settle right down, use her 'inside manners,' and chill out at your feet or in her crate. She is friendly with the neighbor dog through the fence, but hasn't been tested with other dogs. Gracie is interested in cats but we're unsure how she would do with one in the house. She loves all people, especially little kids, while still being a good watchdog when someone comes to the door. Gracie walks ... (Read More)well on a leash, not pulling or tugging. She is learning 'come', 'sit' and 'stay'. Due to a weak esophagus, Gracie does best when she can eat smaller meals during the day, with her front paws up on a bench or step-stool. Just look into her soft brown eyes and fall in love!' Gracie is in a foster home; please contact the rescue to arrange a meeting. (Less)
