Hi, my name is Dakota. I recently made a long journey from a shelter in Modesto, California where I was picked up as a stray. I was transported all the way to Boise, Idaho. I'd never heard of Idaho before, but some really nice people transported me here. Currently I am in boarding while Moonsong looks for my furever home and I really want to go Home!
I'm a young, 3 year old boy with tons of energy! I know sit, down and will do just about anything for a treat. I'm learning how to take treats a little more gently - I just get SO excited! I am very strong and will need a strong human partner who can walk me and maybe even run, hike, bike or skijor with me - I would love that! I did recently get to run next to a bike and that was awesome - I'd really like to do more of that and I was told I was very good at it, too! I also like going for car rides and am very friendly with people I meet. I don't jump up and will sit politely - especially if a treat is involved! Oh, and I also like pets and belly rubs. I haven't been dog reactive and they are going to try me in a play group soon - that will be so much fun!
I am still a little nervous about being handled all over and need someone experienced to help de-sensitize me to things going over my head and all over body handling. I am good about getting my no-pull/pull hybrid harness on cause I know that means I get to go somewhere. I heard I am getting "tutored" soon - not sure what that means, but Moonsong would like me to recover in a foster home instead of a boarding kennel. If you think you're up for that, I would be forever grateful. Please contact my Adoption Manager below for more information - I eagerly await your inquiry!
