EUGENE, Ore. – This 8-year-old Labrador retriever mix is a friendly, high energy dog ready to go home with a new family.

Pumpkin is great with children and ready for adventure. He could be a family’s only dog, or with slow introductions could go to a family that already has a dog. He cannot go to a family with cats.

Pumpkin enjoys playing with toys and needs a yard where he can run around and get some exercise. His new owners should commit to taking him on regular walks.

Pumpkin weighs 65 pounds and his adoption fee is $85. 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.
