I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Miss Butterball is what you would call a lady of royalty. If there was royalty in the canine world, she would most certainly be the Queen. And if there was a red hat club for K9s, Butterball would be the president and lead the party. When her 2 legged people get home or she is excited at feeding time, she pounces on her front paws. She is a jovial, joyous soul to be around. She is aging ever so gracefully at 11 to 12 years young. No signs of slowing this gal down. It was first thought she had to be an only dog, but low and behold, she is thriving in a foster home with big and small, young and old, male and female 4 legged furkids. She does need a proper introduction while she is on leash. But after she knows everyone in her pack, she is a perfect, stunning lady. She occasionally lounges in her foster home right next to another sophisticated older gal Phyllis. They both have red hair so maybe that is what has drawn them to be such pals. Or maybe Butterball is looking out for her smaller sibling. There is also another older guy who climbs all over her but she just waits til he has settled. And even another little rascal in the house will growl or nip at her on occasion. She looks at him and says, really? She could not be bother with such nonsense. She is left to roam the house while 2 legged people are out. She uses a dog door. Totally house and crate trained. She seldom gets on the couch but every once in a while she needs to cuddle with her 2 legged people. Butterball has been with CAWS far too long now. It is time for her to find her furever family and not have to go to adoption events every weekend. She is a gem every weekend though, lays ever so quietly in her crate, waiting for her turn at an occasional pet from a passerby or a tasty treat, or her turn to go outside for a quick walk. Oh, and did we tell you she absolutely adores kids. She weighs about 50 pounds. We think she is a heeler, lab mix. She is not a barker at all. Have only heard her bark once or twice in months.
