Meet Butterbean! He is a 4 year old chihuahua mix who weighs 10 lbs. He was found as a stray in San Jose, brought to the shelter, and was at risk of euthanasia due to overcrowding. Fortunately, Rescue the Underdog was able to step in and save him.
Butterbean has really blossomed since leaving the shelter environment. He is sweet, playful, and loving. He is a love bug who wants to be on your lap and snuggle up next to you. He loves to cuddle, play fetch (his favorite game, which he could play all day), and go on walks. He gets along with other dogs and some cats, although he has shown some jealousy with the cat in his foster home. Best of all, he is house trained.
We think Butterbean would do well in a home with dog experience, and with someone who has the patience to work with him to feel comfortable and safe. He can be a little fearful and skittish initially, possibly due to the life he endured as a stray. He will sometimes try to nip or snap when he feels threatened. This is something he might outgrow as he gets more comfortable, but his new owner should be aware of it.
Butterbean is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Please fill out an application to meet this sweet boy today!
