Ada County Pet of the Week: Sassy the Lab mix

Sassy, 10, is a spayed female black, Labrador retriever mix.

Sassy had been loved by the same family since she was a puppy and then circumstances forced them to bring her to the shelter. She has a sweet personality but her previous owners say she will alert her family to a stranger at the door if the situation warrants it. Sassy has been great with kids of all ages and has lived peacefully with cats and dogs. However, being a mature gal, she may not have the patience for younger dogs, so a meet and greet with potential canine housemates is a good idea. She doesn’t have a lot of energy but will enjoy regular exercise. Sassy knows some basic obedience commands and is crate-trained.

Sassy (#28140053) can be found in kennel 302 at the Idaho Humane Society at 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
