EUGENE, Ore. -- Spot is a 1-year-old pit bull terrier mix who has a lot of energy and loves to snuggle.

Spot is a healthy, active dog and should go to an active family who will play fetch with him often. He knows basic commands like “sit” and “down” and is ready to continue his training.

He has lived with other dogs before, so he could go to a family with another dog, but he will need to meet with the pet at the shelter prior to adoption. Spot could also go to a family with a dog-savvy cat.

Spot’s adoption fee is $185, 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.
