If you’re looking for a gorgeous, loving pooch to be your best friend, we have a perfect match for you. Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Buttercup, a 3 to 3.5 years old Boxer mix from Nashville, Tennessee. This lovely pooch is spayed, up to date on her shots, housetrained and great with other dogs and older children.

Buttercup’s Tale

When you see this dog’s big smile, it’s impossible to guess her ruff history. Buttercup was rescued as a stray, and at the time, she was emaciated, weighing only 19 lbs (she now weighs a healthy 50lbs). She was literally starving and had to survive on rotten fish she found near the lake- the vet gave her a few days to live when he saw her. However, once her rescuers took her in, this sweet pooch completely blossomed.

Now, Buttercup is a healthy, happy dog who charms anyone she meets. She enjoys hiking, playing with a frisbee, but what she likes best is snuggling with her humans. Cuddles even beat chasing empty milk cartons and balls, and that’s saying a lot!

Although she’s not a puppy anymore, Buttercup still has a lot of youthful energy in her, so she’ll need a family that will play with her and keep her exercised. Because of her lively spirit, she’d do best in a home without small children or cats: this loving girl wouldn’t hurt them on purpose, but she’s big and bouncy, so it’s best not to take chances. She gets along with other dogs but prefers males.

She might be an active dog, but that doesn’t mean she has no manners. Buttercup is fully housetrained and crate trained, and she’d be an ideal hiking partner as she behaves excellent on lead. All in all, this four-legged sweetheart is definitely a full package!
