Prefers a home without
Cats, children, other animals. High prey drive so no small animals or cats. Is currently living with a bossy Chihuahua and a dominant large breed and is adapting and learning. She is trainable but still crated when not supervised.

Meet Dakota

Dakota is a very loving dog, who hit a rough patch when a family blended and she was no longer the "spoiled baby" and center of attention. She is fostering with other dogs but typically does not play with them. Don't think she learned how yet.

Very intelligent, very stubborn, medium to high energy, Was trained with a training collar and some improper use of it by newcomers to her world. Now being trained with positive reinforcement and learning she won't get hurt. She's responding well so far. More details to any serious prospective candidates that have experience and a calm environment.

Does have a loud voice (typically barks not bays) when she wants something and would not be a good apartment dog. High prey drive and will rid your yard of any critters or cats. Thin build like a doberman (Greyhound?) but strong and likes to drag her walker. Working on that next!

She is going on 2 years old. Pictures will follow soon. She's black with tan. Ideal weight around 55 pounds.

Spayed and vaccinated.

Not recommended with small or timid children at this time. She is "scary" with her barking when she's upset but we have been concentrating on that and she is improving greatly. She has not bitten but is intimidating until you get to know her. (Great against intruders though!!).

Please email petangels@gmail.com or text 7346457705 if you might be a good fit to help her continue learning to love again.
