EUGENE, Ore. – Candy is a young female Chihuahua mix that arrived at the animal shelter as a stray and is ready to go home with a family.

Candy is a three-month-old Chihuahua short coat mix. She appeared on the KEZI 9 News Midday show as Pet of the Week, and is available at First Avenue Shelter.

Candy can live in a household with children. If the family already has a dog, the dogs would need to meet to make sure they are compatible.

Candy’s adoption fee is $300, 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 Candy or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
