EUGENE, Ore. – Forrest Gump is a friendly pit bull terrier mix who arrived at Greenhill Humane Society a month ago as a stray.

This 8-year-old dog is looking for a moderately active home where he will have daily walks and time to romp around in the yard or bask in the sun. He needs a family that will be gentle with him while he settles into his new home. His sweet, sensitive personality is sure to come through once he gets comfortable in his new surroundings.

Forrest Gump can probably live with another mellow dog, but would be too much for a cat. He can go to a family with older children.

Forrest Gump weighs about 75 pounds and his adoption fee is $100. This fee helps pay for shelter expenses such as vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, post-adoption support and more.

Forrest Gump was Tuesday’s Pet of the Week on KEZI 9 News. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases a homeless pet on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m.
