He’s now in his Forever Home!

They call me Dakota. And here's my story.

I was picked up as a stray and was set up in a kill shelter. I was down to my last hours when my kennel gate opened and there stood a wonderful human with a big smile and warm eyes and I just knew I was saved. The next bit happened fast and is still a bit of a blur but I was released to this wonder human, then taken to her home, bathed, groomed, then off to the vet. I was given a much needed dental — hey who needs all those back molars, right? And had my "private parts" removed, too. I was put on daily meds for Lymes. The good news is that I tested negative for Heartworm.

I am 7 years young, just a tiny bit shy but sweet tempered. Yes, quite a bit of a wiggle butt, I will admit

So anyway, I am now being fostered and just waiting to start my new life in a caring forever home. I pack light and am ready to go. Maybe with YOU???
