Dakota is a 6.5 year old, 45 lb. neutered male in Hickory, NC.

We adopted Dakota about 18 months ago. He was rescued after being chained outside for his first 5 years. We brought him to our home-no neighbors and on a golf course. He could run & get the exercise he needs. When we got him-we knew he had heart worms & had been treated. All his immunizations are current & the vet is pleased except she would like him to lose about 5 pounds.


We moved to a retirement area & he has just not tolerated it. He is very loving & loyal to my wife & I - doesn’t like walkers, other dogs going by, just this neighborhood in general. He has shown aggression towards smaller dogs and strangers. Typical healer nipping, but broke skin ONCE on stranger’s hand-barely. He got loose from his halter & nipped at a neighbor’s dog recently & Animal Control visited today.


We want someone to love him as much as we do. He loves sleeping in the bed. He loves to play. I could not be comfortable with small children around him - just don’t know. We could assist with transport, and a donation to a rescue site would be great.

Dakota is in Hickory, NC.
