Meet Button & Rua! (Homed)

Wednesday, February 16th, 2022

Button came into our direct care as a result of a personal connection and was an emergency case as can be seen in this photo on day 1. He was almost blind, starving, half the weight he should have been and mother could not care for him as he did not keep up as she moved from garden to garden scrounging food. He was lying there dying in the baking sun.

Rua the ginger, is his handsome gentle brother and was perfect and double the weight of Button. When this rescuer saw him, she was not leaving without Rua as he could have ended up the same and Button needed him.

It took many months of treatment and care to bring Button on & Rua was by his side as soon as he was clear of infection and gaining weight. Button is still a little shy due to having eye medication frequently, but that is all finished now & life is all about fun.

The boys are totally bonded and full of fun and play constantly and even if separated by a door are looking for each other. They zoom about the house like crazy enjoying being young and carefree. Strangely enough, Button is the one who loves to groom Rua whether he likes it or not.

Rua has an endearing habit of getting food on his nose and doesn’t notice for ages and it dries. Button washes it for him with the help of a little butter.

The home best suited for them both together is probably a mature couple or single person preferably home a lot. But, they have no experience of children or dogs.

They are all vaccinated, chipped, and neutered and their bags are packed. They are just 9 months old.
