Meet Chunk, the pet of the week for Aug. 16

Chunk is a 6-year-old, 71-pound neutered male black and white pit bull mix. He is a friendly, energetic boy who loves playing fetch more than anything – his enthusiasm is contagious! He knows how to sit and shake, and is very responsive to treats and praise. He walks well on a leash and enjoys heading out to go explore. He is an affectionate boy who loves his people. Chunk’s previous owners surrendered him to the shelter because they didn’t have enough room for him. He reportedly does very well with kids of all ages – however, it’s always important to supervise in new situations. He would probably prefer to be the only animal in the house, although he can get along with other dogs. You can find Chunk (#32254532) in kennel 312 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. You can learn more and see other adoptable pets at idahohumanesociety.org.
