Why Adopt A Rescue
Available for Adoption
Buttons is a 14 year old female. She was turned in by her owner who could "no longer" care for her, and it seems now that she had not received care in a long time. Buttons has Cushings disease, an adrenal gland disease that is manageable with medication. Buttons had not been seen by a vet and treated, and she was suffering greatly. She is now on medication and doing wonderfully. We can tell she feels so much better. Buttons is a special needs sheltie, we have determined that Buttons will spend the rest of her life in her foster home. Buttons is an example of some of the dogs we take in, some need lifetime foster care as their age and medical conditions make adoption difficult. We will not turn these dogs away. She loves being with her people. She is very forgiving and has learned to trust again.
Buttons, after a short, but happy time with a wonderful family in MD, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
