A girl that’s friendly, cheerful, smart, loving and listens well, meet Buttercup. She’s a 1-to-2-year-old, blond and white Labrador mix, with three legs. Being a tripod does not stop her — she can sit, lay down, stay, plus more. Buttercup is not fond of smaller dogs and will probably do best as the only dog in the household. She’s already spayed and vaccinated so she’s ready to go to her forever home after her fee of $50 is paid. Buttercup is available at the Pamlico Animal Hospital.



Beautiful, sweet, and very friendly, Rosemary is a black and white, American shorthair Tuxedo girl. Only 1 year, 3 months old, she’s an old soul who loves to snuggle and welcomes tummy rubs! She’s already spayed and vaccinated so she’s ready to go to her forever home after her fee of $50 is paid. Rosemary is available at the Pamlico Animal Hospital.
