Smooth as butter. This boy is one big ball of goofy, slobbery love. His turkey thighs are not nearly as big as his heart.
As a youngster, Butterball (most commonly called Butters) is learning what it's like being a balanced, well-mannered member of a family. He's eager to please and we know he will be a great addition to a family in no time. He has already learned "sit", "down", "come", "wait", "shake", "back", "leave it", "drop it", and "look". He is hard at work learning more every day and perfecting his skills!
Butters is a high energy adolescent that needs a lot of physical and mental drain, so he has been going on frequent walks with a weighted pack to help him focus. He walks very well and doesn't pull on leash. He loves his flirt pole too! Nose work is fun for mental drain, so he eats a lot of his meals from a Kong wobbler. Food and fun, right up his alley!
His foster family has taken him with on all kinds of adventures and says he is a delight to explore with. He is a pro at camping and is perfecting his kayaking skills. If a nice restaurant patio is more your speed, he cleans up nicely and will be your dapper date! ALL people, big and small, are great in Butters book. Everyone is met with a lean, some sloppy kisses, and a big cartoony grin. He is truly a social butterfly that loves everyone the moment he meets them, and they love him right back! One look into his gentle eyes and they're sold.
Toys and bones are a blast to Butterball! Due to his tendency to swallow small objects, nylabones, marrow bones, and larger tough toys are best for him. He LOVES to chew and is perfectly content with a yummy bone! But do you know what he loves even more than bones? Being right next to his people! He is fully unaware of his size and would love nothing more than to climb into his humans lap and snuggle. He is polite, though, and will only climb up if he is invited. When invited up he loves laying as close as he's allowed, usually scooting up until his head is on your chest or in your neck. Otherwise he will lounge on your feet in his signature frog leg position. He just wants to be close all the time.
Butters lives with two large canine foster siblings and gets along well with both with constant strong supervision. He thinks all the time is good for playtime and isn't shy about trying to instigate play. His foster siblings aren't always on the same page, so he's beginning to enjoy relaxing calmly with them too. He has been on a few play-dates with fellow adopt-a-bulls as well and loved it. With proper, slow introductions he enjoys the company of other dogs. Cats and other smaller critters on the other hand are a little too exciting, so he would be best in a cat free home.
An active family who's looking for a loving companion to share all their adventures with... A patient leader who's willing to guide him through adolescence and on to an incredible adulthood... That is this boy's dream.
He melts hearts on a daily basis, but he is still on the lookout for the toast to his Butters.
