Adopt a Pet from KARES! Meet Buttercup, the Shy One

Buttercup is female Chihuahua mix, possibly Jack Russell or Dachshund, who was found as a stray in Waikoloa, with her sister Peanut.  After some tender loving care by a wonderful foster mom, Buttercup is now available for adoption.

This shy girl is approximately a year old and weighs less than 15 pounds. She is a bit timid and takes a little time to warm up, but once she does she will stare at you adoringly. Buttercup needs someone who can give her lots of affection and build her confidence. She is a bit uncomfortable on the leash and we are still working on potty training. Buttercup was recently spayed, is microchipped, and vaccinated.


For more information on Buttercup call 333-6299. If you want to adopt a pet, check out our Facebook page, as well as our website www.kareshawaii.org to learn more about the other adoptable pets that need homes.
