From Buttermilk's current caretaker:

Buttermilk, just three years old, was in a rural Texas shelter and showed signs of depression. We think she was a breeding female who was dumped after having many litters of puppies. This sweet, loving, playful dog needs a comfy bed and plenty of affection. Can you offer her the loving home she deserves?

Charles and Wesley, about five to six years old, are bonded pups; they arrived together in rough shape from a rural kill shelter.
