All in the Family


Labrador Retriever

Dakota is an absolute dream. My blended family of 7 (two brothers, two sisters, my parents and myself) was chosen by our local animal shelter to be his new family. Dakota was rescued at 10 months old as he was being abused. It was a big job to maintain his training but it was not hard to love him - that's for sure!! He still suffers from mild separation anxiety but takes his teddy with him everwhere when we're not home. Dakota is so sweet and loving, he refuses to leave anyone alone when they're ill. He must be part fish 'cause he'll roll in puddles on a walk. He loves walks, the car, swimming, socializing with other people, dogs, kids, being anywhere we are and just doing things to make us happy, ie: he picks up the socks that I drop when doing laundry and follows me to the washer - but won't give them to me right away (he needs to wag his tail and do his happy dance first). I must say that he's too smart for his own good. He's figured out how to open the windows in the car and knows when we drive by our favorite coffee shop as his level of excitement increases 10 fold. The ladies at the coffee shop know him by name and save him treats for when we visit. Dakota has been an amazing addition to our family and I encourage everyone to consider adopting from a shelter - you won't regret it!!!!

I agree that adopting from a shelter is the only way to go! I'm glad you adopted Dakota because you can see how happy he is with your family! He sounds like quite the character. Give him a hug & kiss from me & Maisie, please :-)
