Butch is a wonderful dog. He was rescued as a puppy after being spotted at a fast food restaurant begging for food at the drive through window. Butch has survived being homeless, rattle snake bit, and two hip surgeries. He is now facing his greatest struggle yet, as his beloved owner and best friend has passed away and he must adjust to life without her constant love and care. Butch was a champion for his owner of nine years, a friend, a loyal companion, and a protector. He needs a hero to fill the huge hole left in his heart and to give him a comfortable loving home where he can spend his next chapter. Butch has a gentle and loving demeanor. He doesn't chase squirrels or bark incessantly. He is a guardian by nature and if you let him into your heart he will love you like no other.
Butch is good with other dogs but doesn't have much experience with cats and children so his ideal home is with grownups and dogs.
Please give this sweet boy one more chance to love and be loved again.
Come meet your new best friend

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
