Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Judge may be a senior (born in 2008), but he sure doesn't act like one. He's full of energy and life. Judge loves people, especially men, and he's a pro at playing fetch. Judge enjoys going for walks and just hanging out in the great outdoors. He came to Best Friends from a local shelter and has had a bit of an unstable life, so he gets very anxious when left alone in new places. Once he's comfortable somewhere, ideally with a fenced-in backyard, he is calm and relaxed. He is currently on some supplements to help him stay calm in the busy environment at Dogtown. Judge does well with most dogs and has passed cat test at the Sanctuary. He would make an excellent camping and hiking partner.
