Dakota is a handsome boy who has sadly not had the best luck in his short life. He was originally abandoned as a puppy, then rescued and lived in a home until he became too much for the resident cats. He absolutely loves to play fetch, enjoys going for quiet walks, will work for his treats through commands or in busy toys, and sleeps soundly in our office area. Being so young, he still needs work on his socialization and manners, but is already learning to hold his "sit" longer and keep his jumpy energy to a minimum. He's looking for an active home that can continue shaping him to be the best pup he can be! He has done well on sleepovers where he's slept through the night, waited to go potty outside, does well in his crate, settles quickly after some playtime and rides well in the car. He's simply a pup who doesn't understand kennel life and absolutely shines away from it! Dakota gets along with other dogs, but does need a home without cats or young kids while his manners are still being fine tuned. We will update as we learn more, but in the meantime, ask about meeting Dakota today!

Most recent post: "This handsome blondie has an incredible personality full of fun, laughs, and of course- snuggles! He clearly loathes being pent up in his kennel, but is a total angel away from the noise and even in a crate in a home. He'll be your go-to adventure dog during the day and ultimate cuddle king at night. He rides great in the car, walks well on leash, waits to go potty outside and settles easily on his own after a game of fetch. He gets along with other dogs, has previously done well with kids, but does need a home without cats. He'll need some fine tuning in the puppy training department, but we've already made great strides in him! He's been a marvelous sleepover guest and can't wait to learn what the love of a true home is like! Please come meet this gorgeous boy today at DHA in Wilmington! He's too amazing to continue to be looked over, so his adoption fee has been WAIVED for an approved adopter! Please email his sleepover buddy Steph at for more info! If you cannot adopt, feel free to stop by for a visit, fill out a volunteer application, and help us find him a home by spreading the word!"
