***ADOPTED!*** BUTTERBALL – Pomeranian/Chihuahua X – Male – 1 Y

Hi! I'm BUTTERBALL!

Hi! I’m BUTTERBALL!

Butterball (known as Butters in his foster home) and his brother Marley are adorable doggos who are full of little dog spunk and sass. They came to Rimrock from a family that had 8 dogs and definitely did not need 10. They have spent their young lives with this family and although socialized with dogs and some people — they are rather shy of new situations. They are so smart and are learning fast but a new owner will have to be patient with them.

They do NOT need to be placed together!

Butterball is the longer coated of the two and although we were told that he was not fond of kids and activity we are finding out that is only partially true. He wants to be someone’s buddy and will follow you and stick to you like glue. He would do best in a home with older kids or no kids as he does not like to be spooked especially while taking a nap. Butter gets along great with dogs and cats and loves to play! He is so smart and would love to learn new things. He does suffer from a little separation anxiety but we are working with him and he is getting better. Crate training has definitely helped!

Although they have proven that they are housebroke, both pups do have issues with marking. The foster home has made huge strides in this area but we are concerned when moved to a new home they may fall back into old habits. New owner will have to remember to treat them like a young puppy and start from scratch. They would both do best in homes where they will not be left alone for long periods of time. Butterball weighs about 17 lbs so the perfect size to take on adventures and cuddle up on your lap at night!

Butterball is neutered, crate trained, wormed, up to date on shots and microchipped.
