EUGENE, Ore. – Suka is a Doberman Pinscher-mix described as an “escape artist” by kennel staff at Greenhill Humane Society.

Suka’s new family will need to take extra steps to ensure that she cannot get out of the yard and go for a solo adventure.

This 5-year-old beauty has gotten along with other dogs at the shelter, so she may be fine with another friendly, playful dog. She has an unknown history with cats, but she may get along with a dog-savvy cat as long as introductions are slow.

Suka is a sweet dog and is likely to do well with most children. She has a lot of energy, so her new family must commit to daily walks and seeing that she gets plenty of exercise and playtime. Obedience training and enrichment activities will also be important to help her become a great companion.

Staff and volunteers at Greenhill say she loves belly rubs and going for walks.

Her fee is $200, which helps pay the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Suka was Tuesday’s Pet of the Week on KEZI 9 News. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. If you are interested in Suka or the other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
