Active Girl Seeks Loving Family

This sweet girl is Dakota, an 8 month old Border Collie, Whippet Cross. I think she has the cutest ears yet!
She unfortunately has not had a very good start to life, she was taken in by a family who saw that she was not being treated very well, only to be left in an unsecured yard where she kept escaping. Dakota said she tried to be a good girl but with huge gaps in the fence and missing boards it was just too tempting to go for a run. Due to this the family felt that instead of fixing the fence and keeping her active it was best that she be put down. But we at PDCR felt that she deserved more than this and she came to stay with us for awhile.

Her foster mom says she is a great girl, she loves kids of all ages, playing with dogs of all sizes, and is a real sweetheart to have around. She is now playing in a full fenced yard and they have had no troubles with her trying to escape. She is still very much a puppy so they are working on her manners and sharpening her housetraining skills, but she is a smartie and catching on very quickly. She would do great in an active home where she could have lots of walks or even better yet runs. We also see some great potential in this girl for agility, so if you are looking for an agility dog we have the girl for you.

As with all of our rescue dogs Dakota is spayed, vaccinations up to date, microchipped and comes with 30 days of Pet Insurance.

Dakota is patiently awaiting your applications and is eager to be a member of a loving family.
