Meet Lakin -- Longest Resident
Hi, I'm Lakin, and let me wiggle on over to meet you! I never get tired of meeting new people, even though I've been here over 400 days. I have a big smile despite my life of ups and downs. I first arrived here in August of 2016 (you read that right, 2016). I waited for nearly a year, and then after an appearance on CBS 21 as the pet of the week, I was adopted in July of 2017! I had a great life for over a year, living in the city of Harrisburg and getting lots of walks and training along the river. But my family had a change of lifestyle that involved new pets arriving, and we did not get along. Unfortunately, I was the pet who had to go, even though I'd been there first. Life is so not fair sometimes! Not at all. Many dogs like me just need steady exercise and guidance, then the diamonds that we are come right out of the rough (or ruff, haha)! I was on my way to really being a good dog, and it's too bad my family did not want to continue working with me. Are you interested in working with me to make me even better? I hope so. Here are the fine details: I cannot live with kids younger than 12 because I'm strong and competitive over toys. A family with older kids or just adults would be great for me, and my new adopter must have experience in owning a dog. The good news about my love of toys is that lifelong training could be a lot of fun with me, because I will try my best to learn new commands in order to get my prized toy back! I'm not a fan of cats or small dogs. If you have a dog more my size, maybe I could meet them, but it would be really great if I could be your one and only pet!
