Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Comet is a talkative little dog who loves to hang out with her favorite people. She also loves to take a walk and then lie down and rest with her friends. She is always happy to see people and lets them hear her excitement.

Born in 2010, she came to Best Friends from another rescue organization that was closing its doors. She has shown some guarding behaviors, and, because she bonds deeply with her person, she can sometimes get upset when left alone. Comet would prefer a quieter household with one or two other dogs at most. She generally prefers male dogs to other females. She has lived in a home with multiple cats and was good with them.
