EUGENE, Ore. – Cruz, a rambunctious Coonhound/Rottweiler mix, is looking for an active family that will make sure he gets plenty of exercise.

Cruz likes to play, go on walks and should have access to a backyard where he can run around. He should be the only dog in the household. He has a good history with children and would be a good dog for many families.

Cruz is 3 years old and weighs about 90 pounds. His 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. If you are interested in Cruz or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.

Greenhill Humane Society is currently undergoing a renovation, and during this time all adoptable dogs are available at First Avenue Shelter.

All kittens, cats and small animals are at Greenhill Humane Society.

First Avenue Shelter is located at 3970 W. First Avenue in Eugene. The phone number is (541) 844-1777. Its hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is closed Sunday and Monday.

To ensure a good match is made, potential adopters must go to the animal shelter 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.
