Bugeye will do best with a patient family willing to give him time to adjust to his new surroundings.

EUGENE, Ore. – Bugeye is one of the dogs recently rescued in an animal hoarding case in the Walton area.

Because he spent his early life as one of nearly 100 dogs in the same household, he is still learning to adjust to new people and new situations. However, he is settling in to his new life and is making progress towards becoming a well-adjusted dog.

Bugeye is still a little timid, but will do well with slow introductions to family members and pets. Greenhill Humane Society staff members say he needs a stable home with an understanding, patient family that will spend time socializing him. They say it can be rewarding to bring a dog like Bugeye into your home, but it may take time for him to fully adjust to his new environment.

Bugeye is a Chihuahua mix and weighs about 4 pounds. His adoption fee is $185, which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Every Tuesday, Greenhill Humane Society showcases homeless pets on KEZI 9 News Midday at 11 a.m.
If you are interested in Bugeye or any other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, call 541-689-1503 or click here.

To ensure a good match is made, potential adopters must go to Greenhill in person to meet with the animal and kennel staff. All family members should be present to ensure the dog is compatible with everyone in the household.
