Little Button was rescued and adopted from an Amish puppy mill at 10-1/2 years old. She was bred litter after litter after litter. She was kept in a metal crate and her teeth were badly worn down from trying to chew her way out. The breeder couldn’t use her for breeding as she was getting too old. They were using a female from one of Button’s litters to replace Little Button. After consulting with the vet, he indicated that she still could eat and her teeth wouldn’t affect her meals. We had Button spayed immediately after rescuing and adopting her.
Button was a very gentle, loving and very graceful dog. She was so happy living in her retirement home and not having litter after litter. She could now enjoy the good life – taking walks with plenty of fenced-in acreage, roaming freely with the other Sheepies, and chasing the squirrels up the trees. She was well accepted by the other Sheepies. She brought pure joy and pure love to us.
Button is sadly missed by all of our family of Sheepies. There is an emptiness in our lives without our Little Button. We will see her again at the Rainbow Bridge. We love you Little Button. “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” – Anatole France
