EUGENE, Ore. – Rza is a 4-year-old pit bull terrier mix looking for a family where her people will be home more often than not.

She is a sweet, friendly dog who would love to be taken on adventures and given lots of love and attention. She can go to a family with children, as long as they are comfortable with a large, energetic dog.

Rza enjoys going for walks and is good with other dogs. First Avenue Shelter staff members enjoy getting her kisses while petting her velvet-soft fur.

Rza arrived at First Avenue Shelter on Oct. 6. She weighs 61 pounds and her adoption fee is $175. The 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. If you are interested in Rza or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
