Hi everyone, my name is Butch and everyone keeps telling me what a lucky boy I am. You see I was hit by a car and the nice man who picked me up happened to be the animal control officer for the very rural shelter where I came up (Appalachian - that is a big word for me but I am also very smart!). Anyway, even though I had a couple of broken ribs and a very injured eye, he liked me a lot because I was so sweet and did not grumble at him even though I was in a lot of pain. He told me because I had such a good disposition, he would take me to his vet to see if could fix me. He told me that normally he would not be able to do this if my personality was not perfect. Anyway, they had to remove my eye but that is okay because now I am winking at people all the time which was something I tried to do before but not very successfully. 😉, The vet's office kept me for many weeks and they told me many times a day what a good boy I was and they told the nice people of HART that too. So here I am with HART and wow are they ever nice to me too. See, I am such a lucky boy to have made it! I am all healed now and I love to run and play and I like snuggling too. I hope you will want to meet me as I know I would love to meet you.
