Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover

Crissy 'works' in the Dejas Lodge Kitchen at Dogtown, where she does a great job. She greets everyone, and enjoys all the attention she gets. Her favorite thing to do is sit on the picnic table and watch the world go by. She treats everyone like her best friend. She just loves being near people, and she'll cuddle with whoever is close by.

Born in 2006, Crissy needed knee surgery when she arrived from a Colorado shelter. Now recovered, she takes medication to keep her feeling comfortable. She's not good with other dogs and likes to chase smaller critters, but she'd be a great companion in a home where she's the only pet.

Crissy has a generous sponsor who will pay for any transportation costs to her new home.
