Ada County Pet of the Week: Jazz


Jazz, 2, is a 54-pound spayed female gray brindle Shar-Pei mix. She was transferred to the Idaho Humane Society from San Antonio, Texas, along with her litter of puppies. She is a friendly, affectionate girl who will make a wonderful companion. She is happiest when she’s around people and can hardly contain her joy. Because of her excitability, she does exhibit a few naughty behaviors like jumping and mouthiness. This can be managed though training and positive reinforcement. Jazz doesn’t appear to have had any form of training, but she is intelligent, eager to please and food-motivated. She will need a home with older, sturdier children over age 7 and an introduction to any potential canine housemates prior to adoption.

Find Jazz (#36360334) in kennel 400 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. You can learn more and find other adoptable pets at
