Dakota's mom says: Dakota is an extremely special and lovable dog to our family. He can be crazy and hyper sometimes, but he is mostly calm and loves to be with the family. Some of our best memories with him are going hiking and backpacking. We let him go off the leash and run free on the trail. He always stays close and runs back and forth through the line of our family, making sure everyone is there. He is a really special dog!!
