Ada County Pet of the Week: Gunter


Gunter, 4, is a 55-pound neutered male German wirehaired pointer mix. He is athletic, high energy, smart and loyal. He would be a great long-distance running partner and loves to play with all types of toys. Gunter is a bright boy, but he can be distracted by things around him and his inquisitive nature might frustrate a novice owner. He has spent the past several months being trained in the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho (IDAPI) program and has made great strides. It will be important that his owner continue his training and provide ample exercise and good direction. Gunter gets along very well with other dogs, but he is not as comfortable playing with smaller dogs. He does have a high prey drive and will need a home without cats or small animals. He is not comfortable with small children and requires a home with children 10 years or older. At the end of a fun-filled day together, Gunter loves a good cuddle.

Meet Gunter (#34104916) in kennel 420 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. Learn more and see other adoptable pets at
