Little Buttons is indeed as cute as a button! This three-year old Pug-Beagle mix arrived on July 15th at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. Buttons was picked up as a stray, but no one came looking for him. He appeared to be blind and possibly deaf. He had a urinary tract infection and an infection in both ears. And on top of it all, Buttons was also heartworm positive.
