Characteristics: Butch is super sweet and lovable. He is a young playful boy who loves life! He came into the shelter as a stray but has been such a good boy with no known issues. He does know a few commands; sit and lay so believe he has had some training. See videos for good introduction to Butch’s personality!
Notes from evaluator: I took my seven-year-old grandson to the shelter today to meet Butch and he is unbelievable! He is smart and friendly and loves kids and loves men and women and is well behaved. When they took him to the glass enclosure where the cats are, he seemed interested, and possibly wanted to play but I did not see aggression towards them, but that one I’m not sure of. Also they said he has no food aggression of any kind that they have seen. They really love him there and I do too ! He did well with dog test; Butch was wagging his little nub although it did take a few seconds for him to warm up but more interest/curiosity and not aggression. The little dog was a male also and Butch isn’t even neutered yet! Butch is Urgent! He has been at shelter almost 30 days and his deadline is imminent.

MARR has been on an intake freeze since the beginning of May due to influx of rotties brought into MARR with medical issues requiring treatment and surgery as well as some challenging dogs with behavioral issues needing rehoming. We are now going to a limited intake freeze which means we will evaluate every surrender application and determine if we can consider the dog for potential intake or if we can only offer a referral to post on our website.
