EUGENE, Ore. – Azul is an energetic one-year-old pit bull terrier mix who visited KEZI 9 News Tuesday as Pet of the Week.

Azul needs an owner that will provide him with regular exercise and continue his leash training. He is a friendly dog that could live with a family who has children. He can also live in a household with another female dog.

Ideally Azul would have a large fenced-in backyard in which to play. He has an exuberant personality and enjoys being with people. Although he weighs 90 pounds, there is nothing he enjoys more than crawling on your lap and sitting down.

This sweet dog was brought to the animal shelter when his owner could no longer care for him.

Azul’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. If you are interested in Azul or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
