Butch is not in a foster home yet but here is an input from one of our most experienced volunteers about Butch: "I have had Butch out numerous times. He has been nothing but wonderful. He is playful and LOVES playing ball, of course you have to have two, because he only wants to trade. Even with his exuberance, I have taken a ball from him his mouth with no issues. Most times I trade for a treat or another toy. Once he burns off some kennel energy playing ball, he walks well on the leash. He is very affectionate, loves to lean, snuggle and get belly rubs. He jumps up in our van and lays down next to you for snuggle time. He did this with the potential adopters yesterday as well. I really like Butch a lot, in fact, I love getting him out. It always puts a smile on my face and his."

Butch came to us from a rural community in Southwestern VA. He had been hit by a car and had broken ribs and a badly injured eye. The animal control officer who picked him up after he was struck by the car thought he was such a nice dog he wanted to save him so they took him to the vet for surgery. Normally, this is not an option given the expense of surgery but the officer fought to make sure Butch got the medical help he needed. They could not save his eye as it was badly injured. The vet kept him for many weeks during his recovery and they too advocated for him to go to rescue. We believe that Butch develops a very strong bond with his family.
