Not ready for adoption until after next shots at the end of July.
These six sisters were owner surrendered to GRRNT at just 5 weeks old. They are settling into their foster home now, and we will know more about them soon.
Buttercup is the smallest of the litter but don’t let that fool you. She can hold her own when it comes to playing with her sisters. She is an absolute sweetheart that loves to be held and loved on and she can also be quite feisty and very vocal at times. She is definitely the sassiest of the three sisters we foster. She is very adventurous, and her foster parents have nicknamed her “Dora the Explorer”. She loves to explore new locations under and behind things and is very curious by nature.
Buttercup loves playing with toys and chasing her sisters and the “bigger” dogs. She loves running and playing in the yard and finding leaves and sticks. She has discovered the love of a tennis ball and will need chew toys and bones for those growing puppy teeth. She also loves soft toys and has done well not destroying them. She has also been doing very well on her house training and is starting to let you know when she needs to go outside by ringing the bell her foster parents have hanging from the door. She has done great sleeping in a crate at night and will sleep all through the night and not get up until the sun starts to light up the room. She hasn’t really learned her name yet and won’t come when you call her but if you “crinkle” a puppy treat bag, she will come running as fast as she can! As far as commands go, she has been learning to sit when getting a treat, learning what the word no means and has pretty much learned that the word potty means go outside. She is growing like a weed and learning so much every day!
7/26/2018 Buttercup had a little congestion today when she went to the vet, so she is getting some antibiotics and will be rechecked in a week to see if she is better.
