Special Criteria What does this mean?

Igor is a big, silly guy who loves playing with people and other dogs once they've become his friends. Though some dogs find him a bit too much, he is tolerant and listens to them well. Born in 2012, Igor is eager to please and happy to give hugs to people he knows. His energy is nice and balanced: he likes to walk or run around, but is also fine just hanging out. Igor tends to guard food, toys and his gate. He is working on this at the Sanctuary, but will need continued practice. He'll also need practice meeting new people, especially men. Do you have room in your heart for this big, handsome goofball? This dog is featured as part of our BLISS (Behavior Lifelong In-home Support System) Program. Through this program, you will receive pre- and post-adoption training advice from one of our behavior consultants, as well as a training plan specifically tailored to the dog's transition into your home. As an added bonus, this dog's adoption fee is waived and if a flight home is needed, that's free as well!
