EUGENE, Ore. – Duke and Salem are two little dogs hoping they can stay together when they leave Greenhill Humane Society.

Duke and Salem are a bonded pair who ended up at the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. The two are shy with new people at first, but are friendly once they get to know someone new. Potential adopters will need to be patient and give the two dogs time to warm up.

Duke is a small male mixed-breed dog and Salem is a female Chihuahua-Dachshund mix. Both dogs are 6 years old. The two need an adult-only home and should be the only dogs in the household.

The fee to take both dogs home is $250 for the pair. This helps pay for the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Duke visited KEZI 9 News as Pet of the Week. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. If you are interested in Duke and Salem or other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
