Special Criteria

Martha is very sweet and affectionate, and she craves people's attention. She likes to ride in the car and to go for walks. She also enjoys doing agility training and is very food motivated. Born in 2014, Martha came to Best Friends from a humane society in Utah. She seems to have separation anxiety and can jump fences and be an escape artist. At the Sanctuary, Martha has liked all the dogs her size she has met so far, though she seems to prefer males. She cannot live with small dogs or cats, as she has shown aggression toward them in the past. Martha would do best in a home where her person either works from home or can take her to an office. She wants to be with people all the time and would be a great companion.
