Meet Buttercup...

Tall, skinny Beagle or very petite Coonhound? We don’t really know what she is but Buttercup is absolutely gorgeous, with her vibrant tri-color coat, and sweet demeanor. Full grown and weighing in at approximately 38 pounds, she is perfect in size, too.

Buttercup is a kind, happy gal and prefers a calmer environment. She’s most comfortable surrounded by humans that understand and respect boundaries.

Containment is “key” to keeping a hound safe. Found on the streets, Buttercup’s nose lead her to stray. Rescued from an unkind fate, she was given a safe-haven at a shelter. Sadly, her pet-parents never found her so now she awaits a new home and family.

Thought to be 3 years of age, Buttercup has a lot of living to do. Can she do it with you?
