BOISE -- How much is that doggy in the window?

The answer is $40 if you're looking to adopt a black dog at the Idaho Humane Society. The shelter is reducing fees for the dark-colored canines after acquiring a large number of the animals.

The shelter says black dogs because they just don't attract as much attention as brown or spotted dogs.

The humane society will cut fees for dogs that are at least 80 percent black in color until Nov. 2. The fee includes vaccinations and spaying or neutering.
