EUGENE, Ore. – Emma, a shepherd mix, was a big hit during her visit to KEZI as Pet of the Week on Tuesday.
Emma is friendly, affectionate and has a sweet temperament. She also knows basic obedience skills. She is a youthful 8-year-old, with plenty of energy for walks and play.
Emma could live in a family with another large dog as long as they meet at the shelter first to ensure compatibility. She could also join a family with children ages 10 or older.
Emma weighs 69 pounds and her adoption fee is $85. This 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 Emma or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
