IF YOU'RE READING THIS ON A PET SEARCH SITE:

1. We are still accepting applications for this dog.

2. PLEASE visit our site BetterDaysRescue.org to read details and sign up for updates (new photos, video, details).

3. Due to the emergent nature of our current intake project, we're doing our best to review applications, interview, and homecheck. We are unable to answer the influx of emails asking "is this dog available?” “how old?" and "how much?" This information is on our home page and on the dog’s profile (or it will be, as soon as it’s available!)

4.  We are all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all inquiries about dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling of a home check or other dialogue - cannot occur until we have received your completed  adoption application .

NO EXCEPTIONS.  Thank you!

 
**Buttercup will be placed in the Phoenix metro area,
for proximity to our rescue (home checks, follow up visits, visit to finalize adoption)
and for access to our veterinarian and trainer. Sorry, no exceptions.
**
Adoption of Buttercup begins with a Foster-To-Adopt arrangement that continues until
Basic Training and Intermediate (or Canine Good Citizen) training are completed.
Training will begin on the timeline set by the rescue; once complete the adoption can be finalized.
**
 
THIS PROFILE WILL BE UPDATED AS NEW INFO BECOMES AVAILABLE. Buttercup needs a calm, friendly, similar-size dog friend in her new home. (Preference will be given to placement opportunities with at least one friendly medium or large dog in the home.) 
 
She is playful and quick like an Aussie, but also has the lovely laidback Lab attitude. She loves snacks and takes them gently. She enjoys chasing and retrieving the tennis ball. She is very interested and friendly with humans - especially if you sit on the floor with her and invite her to be pet.
 
Like her siblings, Buttercup came from a situation of far too many dogs and not enough resources or attention. Our volunteers are working with them to help them adjust to suburban living. Buttercup is so ready to love and be loved!
 
As a young dog, Buttercup needs adult humans home most of the time; she cannot be crated for long periods and needs plenty of activity and brain work. (Preference will be given to adopters who work from home and/or can augment pup-raising with doggie daycare.) Buttercup would most likely enjoy calm and well-behaved children over eight years of age.
 
Buttercup’s bio will indicate “not good with small dogs” until we have a better idea of her ability to interact well with smaller breeds.
 
If you believe you may be a match for Buttercup, please complete our online adoption application and we’ll soon begin reviewing applications to match her with her new family.
 
**IMPORTANT** 
  • "Companion animal" means, needs at least one other friendly, playful dog that lives in the same household.
  • "Fenced yard" means, a backyard that is adjacent to and connected with your residence . (It does not mean a nearby fenced area/dog park.)  If the dog's bio indicates a pool is required, this refers to an in-ground functioning pool that is located in the private, fenced yard adjacent to and connected with the residence.
  • Gates must have padlocks and thresholds (cement or buried pavers to prevent digging.)
  • Yard and patio must be free of debris and have room for dogs to run and play on a lawn and/or a very shaded area.
  • We do not place dogs in situations where there are "drained" or empty swimming pools, which are a fall hazard and contribute to the propogation of mosquitos.
  • We DO NOT adopt to students as we have found that they often do not know or anticipate where life is taking them next.
