EUGENE, Ore. – Poppy is a sweet older dog who will be a great companion for a loving family.

This female Chihuahua-mix is a friendly little dog who is likely to get along with another small, calm dog. She will do well in a mature, quiet household where she can get plenty of love and attention. Poppy would probably be fine in a household with a dog-savvy cat.


Poppy arrived at Greenhill Humane Society as a stray and is estimated to be about 10 years old. She has a low energy level and would do fine on short neighborhood walks. She also likes to be held.

Poppy weighs about 6 pounds and had some dental work done at the shelter. Because she came into the shelter as a stray, little is known about her history.

Poppy’s adoption fee is $100. This fee helps pay the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, post-adoption support and more.

Poppy 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. If you are interested in Poppy or the other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, click here.

To ensure a good match is made, potential adopters must go to the animal shelter in person to meet with the animal and kennel staff. All family members should be present to ensure the animal is compatible with everyone in the household.
