Rigby is a 9 month old tri rough collie pup.  He is UTD on his vaccinations, heartworm neg and has recently been neutered.  This sweet, lovable boy is a typical puppy and wants to play all the time.  He can be a little clumsy when playing with others but is never mean. He is ok with other dogs and with savvy/tolerant cats but can be pushy and clueless when they are sending cues that they have had enough.  He is good with kids but can be a little mouthy, so older kids would be best. He has not had much socialization or exposure to the outside world so he can be very reactive both vocally and when on leash to new people, places and things.  Because of this, NCR is looking for a family that will commit to training to work with him through these fixable issues.  He isn’t a bad boy, he is just a shy, fearful boy that needs patience and a commitment to help him overcome his fears.
Meet Buttercup T.
Buttercup T. is a beautiful, athletic 10-year-old female GSD mix.  She wandered into a
family’s yard and when animal control came to “capture” her - she came as soon as they
whistled.  She appears to have been a very well loved dog, but her family could not be
found.  A rescue group brought her out of the animal shelter. She is quite a beauty!  She is
likely a GSD/Collie mix, very agile and can readily walk several miles.  She is very
interested in meeting people and other dogs but can be excitable and at times “bossy” with
other female dogs.  Her coat is lovely and she enjoys being brushed.  Buttercup is

- Good with Adults, Dogs, and travel in the car

Buttercup passed a set of evaluation tests before being accepted into the TSGSR.  The
tests are not intended to assess how smart the dog is but are important for TSGSR to
determine if the dog is expected to be safe in a family home.   The tested behaviors check
to see if the dog will guard or protect food or toys from people, will tolerate handling all over
its body (including ears, nose, lips to check teeth, lifting paws, belly, back, and gently pulling
the tail).  She remained calm during all of these tests and showed no aggressive

What's Next for Buttercup T:
Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue (TSGSR) will continue to see that Buttercup  is well cared for and receives all
medical care needed for her well being while in our care.  In addition, TSGSR is beginning a search for an adoptive home
that will care for her for the rest of her life.  She will come to his new home with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and
other goodies such as toys. There is no adoption fee.
