Special Criteria What does this mean?

Reptar is incredibly handsome and has the most amazing ears. He's also full of personality and his enthusiasm and energy are contagious. Besides his handsome looks and charming personality, he's a smart fella who enjoys training and earning those treats. He's already learning some basic training cues, such as 'sit,' 'down' and 'shake.' He's done well with all the dogs he's met at the Sanctuary.

Born in 2016, Reptar is always up for any physical activity, including walking, running, hiking and swimming. If he gets to meet new people along the way, that's even better. He loves affection and is extremely friendly. When he's tired from all his adventures, he settles in for some great naps. Reptar came to Best Friends from an animal control department in Texas. He tested positive for heartworm disease and is currently undergoing treatment at the Sanctuary. He would love to find an active person or family who wants to explore new places with him and teach him new tricks. If you're looking for a dog who's the 'whole package,' Reptar is your guy.
