Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary visit required

Express wants to do exactly what her name says: express her love to you. She is a real sweetheart and a mellow girl who enjoys the simple things in life: going for a nice walk, sniffing a good smell, being brushed, getting belly rubs, lounging in the sun and taking naps on a soft, cushy bed.

Express does have a few sensitivities. She doesn't like other dogs around her while she is eating her meals. She prefers to dine alone, or she will guard her food. She would be perfectly fine as an only pet, but when it comes to canine companions she does best with dogs who give her space and who are okay with her bossy ways (she's a lady who knows what she wants). Express passed a cat encounter at the Sanctuary.

Express is fearful of medical handling and can be defensive in those situations. She is totally fine with non-medical handling, though, and enjoys being petted. Express was born in 2006, and is looking for a loving home where she can enjoy her golden years.
