About Butler

Butler is a very gentle and handsome dog looking for a special home. Sadly, it seems as though he lived a rather sheltered life prior to being rescued; as a result, he struggles to trust people and is extremely fearful of humans and their intentions. However, Butler absolutely loves other dogs and exploring the world through long walks and outdoor adventures. While some new sights and sounds can be overwhelming for him at first, once he realizes that he is safe, he overcomes his nerves very quickly.

Butler is looking for an adult-only home with another friendly dog to take his cues from and to help build his confidence around people (he is also great with small animals and has no prey drive).

Butler will need a very patient adopter who understands that it may ultimately take months to build a bond with him, but once they have earned his trust, they can count on having a best friend for life!

Why We Love Fostering

  • I love fostering because I get to change the lives of the dogs I welcome into my home. I get to treat them like my own while knowing they get a chance at a great life. It feels great to be able to provide them with a stepping stone towards their new life with a new family and new friends. Even when they go, I never feel sadness. I only feel happiness because I know they will be loved as much as i loved them. (For Kappy: Though your time was short with me, you inspired me to help other dogs. 🥹)
