Dakota is just 11 months old, female, black and sable, short coat, German Shepherd Cross. She has come into rescue due to a change in circumstances. She is very friendly with other dogs, though a bit shy if they are full on. She is friendly with all the staff at kennels and Vigil’s volunteers although she is a little wary when first meeting new people, but comes round within minutes. Strong on a lead, but she is still a pup so this can easily be overcome. She does need training, but definitely got the making of a great dog.
Her foster dad wrote: “Only 11 months, she is shy but suffers from anxiety when left. She is better, but will chew and pick up anything loose in the house. I have got her house trained, but needs a home where someone is there most of the time. She is good with all other dogs and people if a little wary at first. She is playful and likes to mouth, but sometimes doesn’t appreciate her own strength. Recall improving but close by has a mind of her own. You have to trick her in coming indoors otherwise she will waste your time standing at the door but not coming in.”
