EUGENE, Ore. – Amy is a friendly terrier mix who is playful, energetic and ready to go home to a family.

Amy is 3 years old and weighs 60 pounds. She arrived at First Avenue Shelter on May 24.

Amy can be shy at first but  warms up quickly to new people. She can go to a family with children, but she needs to be the only pet on the household.

She does well on leash walks and would do best in a family that will see that she gets plenty of exercise and lots of attention. She loves to cuddle and give kisses, and would make a great addition to the right family.

Her adoption fee is $175, which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m.
