Meet Dakota

This is Dakota a 3yr old, neutered male, Labrador Retriever. Dakota was surrendered to HBPets after the devastating loss of his owner in January 2020. His owners family tried to keep Dakota, each family took turns having him for awhile until May 2020, when they brought him to us. Although the family members were attempting to do the right thing for him, the 5 months of bouncing around to different homes, had a devastating mental impact on Dakota. Dakota learned that every time the leash was put on he was being moved and the last time he had a leash on he was left with us. For his 1st few weeks he trusted no one, it took us weeks of sitting in his kennel, quietly and patiently waiting, until one day he let us pet him. He trusts us to an extent, however he remembers clearly the 5mths of moving around. Dakota will need someone who can come sit with him daily, who can be patient and is ready to put some time in building up trust. He likes other dogs and this may be a way through his defensive shield. We cannot express enough how sweet, intelligent and absolutely wonderful this big guy is. If you don't have the time to sit with him daily, there is no need to apply, we will not be forcing him to leave if he is not comfortable with you. If you are interested please answer the following questions below, if they are not answered we will not respond. We will set up a meet and greet when we have found the right person or person's for him. Please don't call the shelter, all communication will be done through e-mail, until we have reviewed the questions below.

1. Do you rent or own?
2. If you rent can you provide a letter from your landlord stating you can have a large dog?
3. Do you have a large securely fenced yard?
4. Do you have the time come sit with him daily or until he feels comfortable?
