If you love small dogs with plenty of spunk and joie de vivre, that’s our Buttons! This beautiful 1 year-old Spaniel mix (with the emphasis on mix!) found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so that she would have more time to find herself a great new home. Buttons is now enjoying life in a foster home and spends her days playing with some of her fellow foster dogs all day long. Her favorite buddy is Larry, our super-sweet 4 month-old puppy. Buttons loves to play chase and wrestle so we would like to see her living in a home with another playful pup who can keep her entertained. She has done well with crate-training in her foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. We expect with some positive and consistent direction that she’ll be able to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Buttons can be quite vocal when she wants something or things aren’t going her way so she wouldn’t be well-suited to apartment or condo living. Buttons walks well on a leash and would make a great hiking buddy for someone looking for an active dog in a smaller package. Buttons weighs about 18 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Buttons. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
