EUGENE, Ore. – Emerald will make a faithful companion for someone who is familiar with pit bull terriers and willing to spend plenty of time with her.

She is friendly with people and could go to a family with children. If the family already has a dog, the two dogs must meet at the shelter to make sure they get along. She must go to a cat-free home.

Emerald has some separation anxiety, so whoever adopts her should be home a lot and able to devote time to her ongoing training and socialization.

This pit bull terrier mix is 7-years-old and arrived at Greenhill Humane Society as a stray. She weighs 50 pounds and her fee is $87, which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Emerald visited KEZI 9 News as Pet of the Week. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. If you are interested in Emerald or other animals at Greenhill Humane Society, click here.

Greenhill Humane Society is located at 88530 Green Hill Road and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Its phone number is 541-689-1503.

To ensure a good match is made, potential adopters must go to the animal shelter in person to meet with the animal and kennel staff. All family members should be present to ensure the animal is compatible with everyone in the household.
