Popular culture tells us that Pit Bull breeds are ferocious and strong, but if you’ve ever spent time with one, you know they’re typically oh-so sweet. And while their outsides may be strong, their insides are gentle and often fragile.
One look at this video from Saving Carson Shelter Dogs and you’ll see that Buttercup is absolutely heartbroken after spending only one night in the shelter.
She wants so desperately for someone to find her, save her, and love her.
And she got her wish. When her new human saw Buttercup, it was love at first sight. Buttercup wasn’t so sure, though. As you can see below, she was afraid to let her guard down even with all of those soft pets and sweet words.
What Buttercup doesn’t know is that she is going to have a happy life. She’s going to live in a real home, play with real toys, and get lots of treats and belly rubs. She’s going to be safe and loved—something that this adorable girl, and all dogs, deserve.
