See Buttercup's Homepage
What a little charmer Buttercup is! She had a home for 6 years and then they said they did not want her anymore and dropped her off at the Kent County SPCA.
They said she wasn't nice to the kids. SHE wasn't nice to the kids??? I believe it was the other way around. She is nervous around kids and I believe she was abused by them.
Many families allow their young kids to be with dogs without watching them, they do tease the dogs behind their parents backs --- and then the dog gets fed up -- and they end up in the shelter! Grrrrr!
So, my little girl needs a family who wants a sweet little companion dog to take bye-byes in the car, sit with you the sofa when you watch TV and just keep company in general. She follows me around from room to room, but when my husband comes home she really smiles! She sits in front of him until he invites her up on the sofa to sit next to him. She comes up like a little lady and sits down to rest near him.
She is a very calm, sweet, low maintenance girl and the most she wants is to be with you and get a few pats on the head. I don't think that is too much to ask, do you?

PLEASE NOTE: Any dog/pup adopted from us must have a fenced in property either Physical or Electric Fence. The fence must be installed/or firm commitment prior to us processing an adoption application. If you need a fence for your dog, but are not permitted to have a physical fence, or chose not to, please visit our friends at Pet Stop. Mention that you saw them at our website. http://www.petstop.com/
We abide by the Humane Association's recommendation. For ANY DOG adoption to have a relatively good chance of success, we believe a child should be 8 years old & up. We only adopt what we call our 'BONA-FIDE Kid Lovers to families with children.' Many dogs do not want to live with children. You should only adopt a dog who LOVES kids to be sure you are able to make a lifetime commitment to a dog.
We also expect that if no one is home all day, arrangements will be made to provide the dog with at least (1) 'potty break' daily. This can be through a family member, neighbor, or Petsitting service. We know that it is impossible for us humans to 'hold it' for 8-10 hours, so we do not want our 'shelter kids' to be expected to do so.
