About Dakota

Hi, my name is Dakota! Here is what would work best for me in my new home: -Personality: Friendly, excitable, playful, a little chaotic! -Can Live with Kids: No, I need an adult-only home. I am very rough and jumpy, and terrified the 7 years old in my previous home. -Can Live with Cats: Unknown history. Would likely be *very* interested in a cat and will chase. I will need a very slow, supervised introductory period to ensure everyone gets along. -Can Live with Dogs: Yes, another active dog of similar size would be okay. -Can do Apartment Living: No. -Potty Trained: Unknown. -Bite History: No. -Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, between one and three private lessons, based on adopter experience. -Energy Level: High. -Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a spay. -Additional Information: Dakota is a whirlwind of energy who needs a dedicated family who can invest in her future. Dakota spent the first 6 months of her life in a small kennel with another dog, not receiving much in the way of care. She is a little rough around the edges and really needs to brush up on her manners! She’s highly food motivated which will go a long way in her training. Dakota may be a bit of a “project dog”, but she has a TON of potential to be a wonderful companion for somebody with a sense of humor, and lots of time to dedicate to her training.
