This tough princess is looking for her castle. But really she just wants a throne to sleep on!

Butters is a sweet, squishy, snore monster. She'll let you know when she wants to play, if you can wake her up! She reigns from the couch and loves when her human sits beside her. She'll even make herself comfortable on the floor at your feet, where you might feel her watching you. Bedtime gets her excited. As soon as she sees you crawl in and invite her up, she'll give you a BIG kiss, thump her tail (which is probably morse code for "goodnight"), then settle at your feet. During the day, she likes to get outside and feel the fresh air, smell the grass, and stretch her legs before powering back down.

Butters is young and smart. She is house trained and respects things that don't belong to her. Once she got whiff of a sandal, but quickly realized it was not her stuffed stingray and put it down! At her highest level of energy, she is bouncy and wiggly. In the middle of playtime she might rub her head into your legs or chest and go for kisses to let you know she's having fun. She listens to "sit" and shows potential to master the other basic commands. She is still learning her leash manners and would like a home where she can build her skills!

This adorable butter ball will thrive in a home with a fenced-in yard and humans to love on her most hours of the day. She might even like to have a brother or sister.

Butters is ready melt into your arms. Come meet her!
