EUGENE, Ore. – George, a 9-year-old Labrador retriever mix, visited KEZI for a second time on Thursday in his effort to find a new family to call his own.

He is an active, friendly dog who enjoys spending time with people. He likes to play and has a lot of energy for his age. He also knows a few commands such as “sit,” “shake” and “down.” He would enjoy having a back yard to run around and enjoy the fresh air.

George should be the only pet in the household and would do best in a family with kids ages 14 or older.

George weighs 70 pounds and his adoption fee is $42.50. This fee 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 George 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.
