This is Dakota! She is our newest foster pup. She is a white pit/mix that is around one year old. She possibly the sweetest dog I've ever had the pleasure of being around. She is scheduled to be spayed this Thursday and is totally up to date on shots/worming/heart worm preventative, etc.

She has been turned into an even more "calm-submissive" dog by our Dog Whisperer techniques and she loves our dogs, our cats, and our kids. She had some very minor food aggression issues when we got her, but she's only shown it by growling. Never bitten. (and that's only with our other dogs, not with us.) I've been supervising all meals and letting her know that aggression, over anything, is a no-no. Other than with food, she is a totally easy-going dog! She's never had a family before us, at least not in a LONG TIME. She's still underweight, weighing in at 28 pounds currently. Her entire life has been filled with neglect. She is a very loyal dog... that's a trait you can usually find with a well handled rescue. They simply long to be with someone.

She's not a barker, not a digger, and is super low maintanance. She's an outside dog but, with her nature, I'm SURE she could easily be housebroken if anyone wanted to try. (I simply do not have the want-to.)

If you're interested in Miss Dakota, email me at pupfostermom(at)gmail(dot)com and we can get the ball rolling.

It will be super hard for me to let her go. She is just so easy, and so wonderful. She'd be a great dog for anyone.

So cute! Looks like she's progressing right along. That book on my blog was really good... quite controversial, but it really made me think. The best thing about it is there are a lot of great websites and resources.

She is gaining weight really quickly! Her backbone isn't so boney anymore and her bones above her rear are finally not showing so much.

She's at the vet right now getting spayed. I'm nervous for her.. poor girl!
