Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Sweet, loving Malibu enjoys walks and being outdoors but is also great at relaxing inside. She's excellent with people and always happy to meet new friends. She enjoys playing with toys and food puzzles. Malibu was born in 2013. She is house trained and has great indoor manners, though she'll do best in a home without cats. Although Malibu lived with another dog at a shelter before coming to Best Friends, she is reactive to other dogs and currently lives alone at the Sanctuary. Dogtown caregivers are working with her on this issue, and it's possible that with continued training she may be able to have a doggie friend again.
