Dakota's mom says: Dakota was rescued along with her three siblings and Dalmatian mother from the county pound by a Dalmatian rescue group. Unfortunately, due to their very poor health, two of the pups and the mother died. Dakota and her brother Hank were the only two to survive, so my little girl is a fighter! I adopted Dakota four weeks ago (when she was eight weeks old) and she is growing so fast. She has nearly doubled in size already. She loves to try to chew everything and adores all toys that squeak. She knows exactly where to bite each toy to get it to make noise. She also likes to nip and pounce at the grass and loves to be held like a baby and will put her head in the crook of your neck. We are not sure what the father was, but based on Dakota's markings (one blue eye and bent ears) she is most likely part border collie with possibly some Lab mixed in too. She has already learned basic commands like "sit," "stay," and "come," and has even learned some hand-signal commands. She will still bark in protest to being disciplined as if to say, "No, you can't tell me what to do, Mom!" Dakota is a spitfire, a smart one, and is my little sweet pea. Because she was taken away from her mother at three weeks old, her immune system is a little weaker than most pups, but I know that she will thrive and grow to be a beautiful friend and member of our family.
