Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Squash has a gorgeous coat with unique markings. She also has a curious face that says she wants to trust people and to learn about the world. Squash is loving with people and happy-go-lucky with dogs, both large and small. She even gets along with cats. Squash came to Best Friends as a puppy mom and did a wonderful job raising her pups. Now that they have grown up a little, she's ready for a home of her own. Born in 2014, she can be a tad shy and unsure in new situations, but all she needs is a little time and patience. She's already learned how to walk nicely on a leash and how to sit. Now, she'd love to learn what it's like to have a home of her own.
