Dog of the Week: Nugget By Submitted by the Meridian Canine Rescue Jan 8, 2018 (…) Facebook Twitter Email Nugget is available for adoption at the Meridian Canine Rescue Submitted by the Meridian Canine Rescue Facebook Twitter Email Print Save Hi, my name is Nugget. As you can guess, I was named Nugget because I am tiny like a nugget. I am 6 pounds of love, love, love.I was a stray from Phoenix who was brought to the county pound. My owners never came looking for me so I was put up for adoption. A nice lady from Annie’s Rescue Ride came to rescue me because I needed my teeth cleaned and no one wanted me because of that. So, I had some teeth removed and the rest are clean and polished. And, I even had my blood drawn to make sure I was healthy. I do have a heart murmur but I am healthy and show no signs of sickness. My perfect day would consist of sleeping on the couch, going outside to sunbathe, riding in the car and then going for a leisurely walk. I am housebroken, quiet, well-mannered and an overall great little guy. I don’t want to brag, but I am pretty perfect.This 9-10 year old gentleman is ready to make a home here in Idaho. He is friendly and cuddly and good with other dogs. Nugget is living in a foster home right now, where he likes to follow his foster dad around the garage as he’s doing projects.
