HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find Butch a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!
NOTES FROM BUTCH'S FOSTER HOME:
Butch was sadly given up when landlords changed their mind about the pet policy at his former family's residence.
He was initially a tad cautious and wanted to do things at his own speed, but he's opened up quickly- and he gets attached quite fast. He is instantly entranced by treats and this is the way to his heart. Just a couple and he is your best buddy.
He loves his people and he shows you this with his enthusiastic response when he sees you! He makes friends pretty quickly, especially since he's been attending daycare. At first he wasn't sure about it, but he has jumped into new people's laps the same days he's met them and even started playing! He was used to the solitary life of an only dog- and he surely wouldn't mind that again- but he's discovered that he's got a playful side he didn't know about!
Butch was not happy about the crate at first, but he's a champ now and goes in when you ask- especially when there's dinner involved! He doesn't seem to care about our cat. He is good with his housetraining though not perfect, but he goes when you ask.
In all, this guy has come so far from the scared, uncertain boy he was when he arrived, it's pretty amazing. He is doing great and just waiting for his forever family to come a callin' :)
All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.
Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
