Pets Of The Week!
My name is Buttercup and I am a 5 year old Corgi/Dachshund mix. I am a very sweet girl and I love to go for walks! I would be great in a home with other dogs and children of all ages. I have a tendency to sneak away, so I would need to go to a home that is able to keep my confined to the yard. I am spayed, microchipped, up to date on all of my vaccinations and searching for my forever family!
Baxter is aged around a year old and was brought in as a stray kitty. He is very affectionate and likes to walk around your feet. His favorite things to do are play with toys and chirp at the birds through the window. When Baxter was brought in we found out that he has urinary tract issues and is now on special food for it. Unfortunately this will have to be permanent so that the issue doesn’t reoccur. Other than that he has a clean bill of health and will make someone a wonderful pet. He likes other cats, dogs and children and is also neutered, current on vaccines and microchipped.
