Plenty of Pets

Meego is a two-year-old terrier mix who needs a home where he’s the only pet.

He spent the first part of his life outdoors, lonely and bored. Because he has few new experiences in his early life, he sometimes becomes over excited and needs calming strategies and redirection.

He’s a smart boy and would benefit from training in something like agility or performing tricks.

He needs work on leash manners and can be quite vocal and bossy with other animals.

He is crate trained and enjoys cuddling when he’s in the mood.

A home with someone who is terrier savvy, and where there are no children, would be ideal for Meego.
