Buttercup (A21101329) is an absolutely adorable 3-5 year old “pocket pit” that is super petite and low to the ground! Poor Buttercup was found abandoned in a vacant house by a neighbor- she had been left when her family moved. She was living with a Shih Tzu and seems to like other dogs. Buttercup is a total lovebug and true sweetheart- she will curl up in your lap, and is calm and friendly. Buttercup is pretty poor condition- she has some hair loss and is underweight and seems to have had litters in the past. She also has a badly damaged eye that has no vision and needs to be removed. ACCT Philly can do her eye surgery as long as she has a rescue, foster or adoptive home to go to! Buttercup must leave within 48 hours!!!
