Half-brothers, Buddy and Button were originally from a rat breeder in Ottawa where they were going to be killed. You can read about their story here. Luckily, their former owner reached out to the Rescue and after a neuter and several weeks of socialization, Buddy & Button are now ready to find their forever home.
Button is estimated to be approximately 11 months old, while Buddy is 3 months younger. Of the two, Button is the leader, the adventurer and the super outgoing one. He’s always eager to greet new people and is completely fine with being held and handled. Funny enough, when he’s had enough, he’s usually the first to squeak in protest.
Buddy has come a long way and is now finally comfortable with being pet and handled. He still doesn’t enjoy it the same way Button does, but he’s no longer fearful and in fact will now run towards his foster mom instead of away from her during playtime.
Because of the multiple homes Buddy and Button have already been through, we really hope to find them a loving forever home with someone who has the time and the experience to give these boys the love they deserve.
