    Did I catch your eye? I don't blame you if you had to stop and stare, I am quite cute if I do say so myself. My name is Meko and all I want to do is find a place to call my own. I am approximately 5 years old and was brought to the shelter as a stray. I forgot to bring along my diary, but the wonderful volunteers can tell you that I love going for walks, like all outdoor activities, and enjoy getting back rubs. I am strong and athletic and would love to learn new tricks. I am not a big fan of other animals so would prefer to be an only pet. If you have been searching for an furry companion that you want to spoil then look no further. I ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-11-00472VARGER (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Varger! Varger was rescued from a kill shelter where he came in as a stray. Varger appears to be a mix of Husky and some type of Collie, probably Border Collie. He is male, about 45 lbs, 3 years old, and has gorgeous white and black fur with pronounced eyebrows. He is deceptively light for his size, and agile and squirrely. Varger is very Husky-like in personality, somewhat distracted and very curious, but once he's had a little time with you, very affectionate and cuddly, and your best buddy. He appears not to have been de-sensitized to being handled as a puppy, so he can get nippy when approached by new people or when his paws and ... (Read More)tail are handled. While adults can let him approach them and be okay, we are recommending that Varger is not placed in a home with small children. (Also, Varger will probably live another ten years, so if you don't have children but are planning to have children in a few years, he would probably not be a good fit.) Varger does very well with other dogs, large and small, as well as the little cats in his foster home. Varger is housebroken and crate-trained, and he is good in the house but does better when he's had plenty of exercise. Varger's recall is not good, so he should not be off leash in an unenclosed area (for example, this is not a dog you can take camping off-leash). Varger is getting better at his commands, such as 'sit,' 'wait,' and 'eat,' and 'come.' He loves car rides and likes to sneak dog-kisses on you from the back seat. A home that can provide him exercise and will continue his training will be lucky to have this handsome and sweet companion. Varger's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, up-to-date basic vaccines, up-to-date rabies vaccine, microchip, and heartworm tested negative. Even though many of our dogs come from Eastern Washington, Varger is in foster in the Seattle area. Please email for an application to adopt this gorgeous boy! (Less)

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello I was rescued from Texas from a very abusive situation at another rescue awhile ago and was adopted by a wonderful lady. She trained me to be her service dog. I now need to find a new retired home. I am good with older children. I am not so good with cats, and female dogs. I am not really dog aggressive. I was trained to go everywhere with my owner. I was able to help her with balance but since my hips are a little weak I have trouble getting up stairs or carrying heavy items in backpacks etc. I would make an excellent PTSD companion. I know my sit, stay, down commands real well as well as heal. I still have many years of loving ... (Read More)companionship to give you. Thank you for reading my story (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Washington
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Washington if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
