    PHEONIX, Ariz. - Update 10/16 11:21 a.m.: Jefe and Jericho have a new home -- together. They were adopted late last week by a woman named Constance, who, according to the Humane Society, understands Jerico’s Valley Fever and will be able to care for him.

    Original story: Unlikely friends are going to need a “fur”-ever home together.

    Meet Jefe the Chihuahua and Jericho the German Shepherd. They’re both hopefully temporary residents at the Arizona Humane Society in Phoenix.
