Sweet little Buttercup is our Adoptable Dog of the Week. She’s a 2-year-old Dachshund from Henderson, Las Vegas. Buttercup is purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Buttercup’s Tale:

Buttercup is a precious miniature dachshund looking for love and a loving home where she can demonstrate her playful nature and professional cuddling skills. She is only 2 years old and has a congenital heart condition that does not require medication but should be monitored over the years. Precious Buttercup was neglected previously and underweight when she arrived in rescue. She would like a family to love her and to spoil her in proper dachshund fashion!
