EUGENE, Ore. – Pinball is a senior dog ready to live out his later years in a quiet, peaceful home.

This 10-year-old male Chihuahua mix ended up at First Avenue Shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. He is a friendly, sweet little dog who enjoys snuggling and being held.

Pinball has a medical waiver, which shelter staff will explain to potential owners. He has some mobility issues which prevent him from going on long walks, but he still enjoys spending time outside.

Pinball could go to a family with older children who would respect his physical limitations. He could live in a household with another dog, as long as the dog is calm and respectful. He could also live with a cat.

Pinball’s adoption fee is $85, 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.
