Buttercup Princess is a teeny tiny girl with long legs, tan and white wiry fur, and pretty brown round button eyes and a button nose.
Buttercup Princess is a very sweet and affectionate girl once she gets to know and trust you. She will give you kisses and come sit right next to you--but it needs to be her choice and on her terms. She rarely wants to be picked up and will definitely let you know if you try. So Buttercup needs a very patient and understanding, very experienced dog owner who has had dogs with anxiety and who is willing to wait to gain her trust. And she needs a very slow introduction to people she doesn't know.
Buttercup likes to take a couple walks a day. While on leash she will bark a lot when passing other dogs, and sometimes people, and she pulls. However, she gets along very well with my other 2 small dogs and with some other dogs we’ve met. Sometimes she plays and spars with them. Buttercup is house- and crate-trained.
Buttercup enjoys a nice walk in the park and rides in the car. She also loves mealtime and treats! She is just learning Sit and Wait, and she will be fun to train some more.
Buttercup Princess is up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped, spayed and heartworm negative.
Buttercup Princess came from a local shelter.
