Available Dogs - Buttercup


Buttercup at the museum

Buttercup is an adorable girl who is slightly shy at first, and then very sweet with her people. She can be a bit of a “daddy’s girl” and likes men.

Buttercup loves her people, but is not a big fan of strangers coming at her too fast or other dogs. She can meet people nicely with a little coaching (of the people!) She can bark or lunge on leash at other dogs initially, but then can settle and take nice leashed walks with other dogs. She should probably be the only dog in the home.

She is a beautiful dog with soft fur, and she likes brushing and petting. She’s good in the car, and is house- and crate-trained. Buttercup knows commands like “sit” and “wait” and “come”. And she’s a good learner and wants to please her people.

Buttercup is a sweet low-key companion for a quieter family. She has so much love to give!
