Give a warm welcome to retired mama Miss Buttercup! Buttercup came to us just before the holidays. When she arrived in foster care she had a large open wound on her shoulder and was a very scared little lady. For the entire first week in her foster home she only ventured out of her crate to drink and eat. When her foster mom would walk by her crate she would pancake down, run away, and cower in her crate.
Because there is kindness in this world and because this little girl has such a dear and gentle heart, little by little she started peeking out of her crate, and slowly she let her foster family touch her. She now lies on the sofa and snoozes, has learned to play with her sloth toy, and loves to chew on Nylabones. Buttercup also loves playing with the other pups in her foster home. Fortunately, her wound healed after a course of antibiotics, and physically she is as good as new!
Buttercup does have a little quirk which probably comes from never having anything of her own. She gathers up every bone, ball, and toy in the house and hordes them in her crate. She is also very aware of the other dogs in the house during feeding time, but she is not aggressive. She has adapted to life in foster care and her foster family says that she is a perfect little lady, well, except for when she decides to give lots of sloppy and snorty kisses!
