EUGENE, Ore. – Minerva is a playful, affectionate Pit Bull terrier mix who loves to retrieve a ball and knows some commands.

This fun-loving dog should go to an active family with children who are 16 years old or older. Ideally, she would have a fenced-in yard for play and exercise.

Minerva should be the only pet in the home. She already knows the commands “sit, down and shake,” but would love a new owner who will take the time to teach her everything she needs to know to reach her potential as a great dog.

She weighs 61 pounds and has been at First Avenue Shelter since Dec. 12. Her 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 Minerva or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
