She is fearful of new situations and sounds, especially of men. Buttercup will likely do best in a patient home, that allows her to take things at her pace. Once she has opened up, she is very gentle and sweet. She is crate trained and housetrained, although when she is afraid she can have the occasional accident. Buttercup gets along well with other dogs after proper introduction, but is not keen on them rushing up to her. She has met a cat but had no interest, she will most likely be okay with a dog-savvy cat. Buttercup would most likely be good with older children. She’s a big girl, so no toddlers as she might accidentally knock a small child down.Buttercup walks well on a leash, but will pull if startled or afraid. In new settings, she is very shy and timid requiring lots of positive reinforcement.Buttercup is looking for that special adopter who will be able to help her build self-confidence and enjoy all her love!Please Note: All dogs are posted until they are officially adopted.
