EUGENE, Ore. – This lovable guy was found roaming around a golf course and it took weeks for him to trust humans enough to be rescued.

Now that he’s learned to trust people again, he can’t wait to find a family of his own.


Putter has been at Greenhill Humane Society since Feb. 10. He is a big dog and will need a yard where he can run around and play. Basic obedience classes are a good idea, since he wants to please and has lots to learn to fulfill his potential as a great companion.

An active family that will make sure he gets daily walks and plenty of exercise would be ideal for this shepherd mix. He can go to a family with children, as long as they give him time to settle in. Putter should be the household’s only pet.

Putter weighs about 80 pounds and his fee is $200. This fee helps pay for shelter expenses such as vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, post-adoption support and more.

Putter 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.
