Ada County Pet of the Week: Max


Max, 6, is a 60-1/2-pound neutered male German shepherd/American pit bull terrier mix. This handsome fellow is an easy-going, likable guy. He appears to know “sit,” “down,” “shake” with both paws, and performs them very nicely for treats. He loves to chase after tennis balls and play tug-of-war with his people. Max does well in dog play groups but can have a rough play style. A dog introduction is strongly recommended before Max goes home with a family that has another dog. Max will need a cat-free home. We do not know how Max is with children, so feel free to bring any little ones in to meet with him before adopting.

Max (#36885940) is available for adoption in kennel 414 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Learn more and find other adoptable pets at
