History- Miss Buttercup came from a local shelter right before euthanasia.  The staff rallied for her and sent out rescue requests begging for help for her- Almost Home NM said OK.. She is darling but tries to be dominant over the other dogs..  So she won't fight but she does stand up to them and makes things uncomfortable.. We have found she does great though with bigger dogs..  She is learning to be with the other dogs and is doing very well..

Temperament- Buttercup is very sweet and quiet..

Energy Level- She is a lower key girl-- enjoys just hanging out watching tv and taking leisurely walks in the neighborhood..

Dogs/Cats- Buttercup has met the other dogs and over her time here has learned to love being with them-- she especially loves playing with the little boys.. She will run and stomp her feet in front of them and play bow.. Too cute!! She is great with cats-- just ignores them..

Housetrained- She is house and crate trained..

Buttercup will make a great pet for anyone wanting a small, sweet, mature girl that doesn't need a whole lot of exercise just love and more love.. She loves attention and we think she would love to have her own lap to sit on and someone to enjoy life with..

Adoption fee $100 includes spay, heartworm test, rabies vaccine, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, collar and tags, training information, and all the support you need.
