Buttercup came to Moore Humane Society (MHS) in May 2010 as a stray. She’s a Feist mix with big brown eyes and huge, expressive ears. Feists are members of the terrier family and are considered excellent family dogs. They are usually intelligent, alert, inquisitive, active and affectionate.
Upon arriving at MHS, Buttercup was found to be suffering from cherry eye. A cherry eye is a prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. Unlike people, dogs have a 'third eyelid' that contains a tear gland and is located in the corner of each eye. Under normal circumstances, this gland is not visible and aids in the production of tears. For some reason, which is not completely understood, the gland of the third eyelid prolapses or comes out of its normal position and swells creating the condition known as cherry eye. MHS funded the surgery to correct this condition and she now seems much happier.
Today, Buttercup weighs 14.6 lbs and enjoys taking walks with our volunteers (and getting treats)! She has been spayed and is up-to-date on her vaccinations.
Buttercup is such a sweetheart and loves to be held. Once she is part of a family, she will grow to adore them very quickly. You can sense she craves the love and attention of people.
Won’t you give Buttercup the new home she deserves?
