Ada County Pet of the Week: Dewey


Dewey, 4, is a 10-pound male, domestic medium-hair. Dewey enjoys being around people and will walk to the front of his kennel to ask for head rubs and chin scratches. He tolerates being held, but would rather sit on a warm lap to snuggle. While Dewey is very playful and loves to chase after and bat his toys, his play style may be too rough for young children. Dewey was found as a stray on Latah and Rose Hill and has been adjusting well to life in the shelter. He will need to stay the night to be neutered before going home with his forever family.

Find Dewey (#36882406) in cattery kennel 105 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 find other adoptable pets at
