Ada County Pet of the Week: Jackson


Jackson, 5, is a 70-pound neutered male yellow Labrador retriever mix. He’d love to walk, run, hike or even swim with you. Jackson likes chasing a soft toy and will even give it up when asked. He knows several obedience commands. He’s a smart guy and could easily learn more. Jackson’s previous owners said he was doing some resource guarding of people with the other dogs in the house, so he’d probably do better as an only dog unless you are willing to work with him on correcting this behavior. An introduction with any potential canine housemates is required. He may also guard valued possessions from people, so he needs an experienced owner and a home without children.

Jackson (#14451905) is located in kennel 325 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 see more adoptable pets at
