Shortly after intake to animal control, Buttons received medical treatment and supportive fluid therapy for the serious intestinal illness, Campylobacter. Buttons was ill for a while, but he is now doing well, on the road to a full recovery, and eager to move on to his new home.
Impish and playful, a sheer joy to be around, this absolute darling of a dog is more than ready to form a life-long bond of mutual love and adoration with his adoptive family. Part playful funny guy, ever-ready to entertain with his antics---while garnering as much attention as he can--- and part serious-minded canine who is deeply devoted to his people, Buttons is an infectiously happy, totally all-in, full of life young guy who is looking for faithful human companionship, lots of hands-on affection, and inclusion in daily family activities. In return? ---Not only a lifetime of true-blue loyalty but lots of cuddling and free doggie kisses too!
Buttons is also intelligent, lively, interested, and curious about his environment with his busy nose frequently leading the way. This jolly and completely endearing compact canine is a hard-to-resist cutie patootie---and he knows it! Lest he capitalize on this, and potentially get himself into trouble, he needs a responsible, caring owner who will appropriately channel his zest for life by providing established rules and boundaries to which all family members faithfully adhere.
Buttons is looking for leadership and direction; this eager-to-please, gregarious, and genuinely sincere canine flourishes with that kind structure. Like all dogs, he needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to be happy and healthy. Buttons really enjoys outdoor time, especially if that means interactive play sessions or getting to hang-out alongside his much-adored people. Having a home with a securely enclosed yard where he can safely romp and explore the world around him would be a huge bonus for him too. With consistent leadership, adequate exercise, lifelong companionship, and lots of TLC, Buttons is set up for success and will surely thrive as a polite and well-mannered, yet fun-loving and vibrant canine family member.
Buttons is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Buttons at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email email@example.com or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
