EUGENE, Ore. – Butterfly visited the KEZI 9 News studio Tuesday in hopes of finding a new home.
This 8-year-old female Pomeranian is a friendly little dog looking for a family that will treat her gently and kindly. She likes people and will fit into many households.
Greenhill Humane Society volunteers describe her as a sweet little dog who enjoys attention and would make a good lap dog.
She could go to a home with a dog-savvy cat. Her history with other dogs is not known.
Butterfly has some skin issues that will need continued treatment.
Butterfly weighs nearly 10 pounds and her adoption fee is $85. This 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.
