Meet Dakota

Add to favourites

Dakota is a very energetic goofy ball now that she has become more comfortable. In her previous home she lived a very closed off life, either outside alone or inside crated when visitors came over.

When she came into our care she was very nervous of new people and it took her some time to settle and get used to all the new staff. She is doing great with us now and loves spending time with us. Dakota is looking for a home that will continue working on her counter conditioning to new people and surroundings.
Dakota will need multiple visits prior to going to her new home.

Dakota loves playing with the staff and her toys here. Sometimes she can forget how big she is and does jump up when playing. She is also very strong on leash.

Due to her fearfulness with new people, we are saying no small children as they may be overwhelming for her. Dakota has one doggy friend here, and can be a selective when it comes to some dogs, slow leash introductions to any new dog is recommended. No cats for this girl though.

If you think you could be a good match for Dakota, the first step to adoption is filling out the adoption application. Which can be found at
