Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Luna is energetic and always ready to have a good time. She's liked everyone she's met at the Sanctuary and is always excited to see you. This sweet girl came to Best Friends from a shelter in Texas. She walks well on leash with a harness and is not slowed down by her missing back leg. Luna was very anxious when she first arrived at Dogtown. She has since settled in and relaxed, but she has continued the anxiety medication she was on when she arrived. Best Friends vets are planning to try weaning her off these meds, and she may or may not need them all in a home. Luna guards her food and toys, so she is working on going to her 'place' and learning to 'wait' for her food bowl. She's also practicing trading her toys for treats and other items. Luna was born in 2016 and is ready to begin her life as a beloved pet.
