Butterfly, described by Arizona Friends for Life as "an absolute sweetheart of a dog," needs a special, loving home while she recovers from tick fever. This adult American bulldog mix was also suffering from a skin condition and untreated allergies when she was found as a stray.
Despite her troubles, Butterfly is a playful dog who loves her toys and being around other large dogs and people. She is on medication for tick fever, and will need to stay in a "foster to adopt" home. Her current foster mom praises her as "a perfect guest."
Friends for Life can tell you more about Butterfly, as well as her reduced adoption fee as part of the shelter's program leading up to the annual BARKtoberfest event.
For more information, contact Friends for Life at (480) 497-8296 or visit www.azfriends.org online to see more photos of Butterfly.
