Special Criteria What does this mean?

With his special 'hyena' bark and heeler looks, Saint is pretty darned endearing. He's definitely a talker and likes to tell you how he feels, but he's also the sweetest snuggle bug you could ask for. Very attentive during training (and very treat motivated), he learns new things quickly.
Born in 2015, Saint came to Best Friends from a rescue organization in Texas. He was treated for heartworm disease at the Sanctuary. Though he is picky with his doggie friends, Saint does live with another dog in Dogtown. He has shown some minor guarding behavior when jumping up on top of dog crates, and he can get overstimulated with a lot of excitement.
Saint already has a perfect 'sit' and is currently learning more training cues. He can do easy food puzzles and sometimes eats from slow feeders. Saint will need an active home where he can continue doing training, including house training.
