Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Claudette is the ultimate cuddle dog. She has random bursts of energy, but most of the time she just wants to hang out with her people. Although Claudette is the perfect size to scoop up and snuggle with, she's also big enough to enjoy any sort of adventure. Claudette came to the Sanctuary from a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network Partner. She has done well with all dogs she has met at Dogtown and lives with a group of them. She sometimes gets 'kitchen time' so that she can take a break from all the activity of her doggie roommates and spend some one-on-one time with her caregivers. Born in 2015, Claudette is starting heartworm treatment and is learning basic training cues at the Sanctuary. If you're looking for a sweet, snuggly, fun-loving dog, Claudette might be perfect for you.
