Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary Visit Required

Gringo can walk a little, but just barely! His leg was broken long ago, and his person never got it fixed. So he can't really use it, and the other one is a little arthritic, too. Supplements help with the pain, though, and he's a sweet fellow! He sure hopes his funny legs aren't gonna keep him from getting a home.Gringo is a Panama Amazon who came to Best Friends after living with someone who wasn't able to care of him any longer because of poor health. Could you be the person to love and care for Gringo? He was born in 1979 and can live to 50 years or more.
