Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary visit required

Bliss is looking for a special home. She has a wonderful heart. She leans into you so that you'll pet her. When she sees her human friends that she does a little tap dance to ask for attention! She wants to be your beloved companion for life. And she's fun, too. There's nothing she likes more than sprayed with cool water on hot days, and playing with her favorite stuffed toys. Born in 2007, she's in good health. She has a beautiful soul and all she really wants is to be close to you. She'll understand you if you'll understand her.

When she's out on a walk, she's friendly toward strangers, although she'll bark at them from behind a fence. And she needs to be an only pet. It's a tall order, she knows! But if you can see the love in her eyes and give her a home of her dreams, you will be changing her life forever. And she so deserves that!

Bliss is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
