Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Magpie is small but mighty. There's a lot of personality packed in a tiny package, and that personality is endearing, silly, sweet and loving. Magpie loves people, and people can't help falling for her. Born in 2016, she was a stray who came to Best Friends from a local animal control department. She can be a bit mouthy, and she has shown reactivity and aggression toward other dogs. In Dogtown, she's been working on hand targeting and walking parallel to (but a safe distance from) non-reactive dogs. Magpie is looking for an active home where she can be someone's one and only canine companion.
