Butch is another boy from the GA gang, numerous frenchies that were surrendered by one owner in GA. Butch is the most laid back foster dog his foster mom has ever had! He’s a mellow dude that loves to just wander around and flop down for a nap whenever the mood strikes him. He’s definitely a follower! He reminds his foster mom of a sweet old man just enjoying his days with nothing to do. No serious exercise for this couch potato! A walk outside long enough to do his business is all that he needs. He’d rather be inside enjoying the air conditioning instead of hanging out in the heat of the day.

Butch is incontinent. Because his bathroom habits are hard to predict, he wears a diaper and diaper protector while roaming free in the house so that he can explore without causing problems. Butch does not require someone who is home all day or a mid-day potty break, but what dog wouldn’t love a potty break or a chance for extra attention. His foster mom thinks he will do best in a home where he can be out and about, which is why he needs to be wearing his diaper and diaper protector. He is crate trained, though.

Butch has a couple of “special needs,” but they don’t require any special attention at this time. He had to have one of his eyes removed because there was a severe buildup of pressure. At first his foster family thought he was blind, but he appears to see shadows and shapes. Although he does pretty well with his limited vision, he does need some gentle guidance. He also has a bad back foot; however, it doesn’t really stop him from getting around. He walks slowly and occasionally sits or falls over, but he gets up and keeps on going!

He is a very well behaved boy and has not displayed any aggression issues with food or toys. He actually doesn’t seem partial to any specific toys. Instead of playing with toys, he would much rather wander around sniffing everything and then fall asleep when you least expect it! Butch is not difficult to take care of, so he would do well in a home with children and other dogs or on his own. He just wants someone to be his human and promise to take care of him for the rest of his days.

Butch is extra special because of his laid back personality and silly face. He’s so easy to care for that you can’t help falling in love with him. He has an “anything goes” type of personality, which makes him easy to love. Please consider adopting this boy and you will see just how amazing he is!!
