EUGENE, Ore. – Eggs is a friendly Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer mix who would love to go home to a fenced-in backyard and plenty of toys for play time.

This likable dog visited KEZI 9 News on Tuesday as Pet of the Week.

Eggs is gentle and sweet and likes children of all ages. He would do well with a family that will spend time with him and continue his training. He already knows basic commands such as “sit” and “down”. He should be the only pet in the home.

Eggs is 4 years old and weighs 62 pounds. He has been at First Avenue Shelter since April 30.

His adoption fee is $175, 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 Eggs or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
