EUGENE, Ore. – Two cute young puppies visited KEZI 9 News on Tuesday, hoping to catch the eye of a viewer who will want to take them home.

Whinnie and Malakai are 10-month-old siblings who weigh 10 pounds each. The two Chihuahua-Pomeranian mixes love cuddling, playing with squeaky toys and running in the yard. Whinnie is tan in color and Malakai is black and brown.

The dogs can go to a family with children ages 6 or older. If they are adopted together, they must be the only dogs in the house.

 If they are separated, they can go to a house with another small dog.

The dogs will need an active family that is willing to commit to basic obedience and housetraining. Since they are puppies, they have lots of energy and will need plenty of activity and exercise every day.

Their adoption fee is $400 for the two or them, or $250 for one of the dogs. This includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Every Tuesday, Greenhill Humane Society showcases homeless pets on KEZI 9 News Midday at 11 a.m.
