Dakota is a handsome, energetic senior. Although he has come north from more southern climes, this ten year old tri­color setter has discovered snow. And he loves it! He so enjoys running through the white stuff, taking his tennis ball out in it, losing it and then snuffling through the snow to again find it. He has quickly become friends with his step­sister, a setter border collie mix, and has learned that cats are nothing to be feared although it took a few hisses on the part of the cats for him to learn to be less nosy!

Dakota has had some training in his past home as he does know and follow basic commands like sit, stay, down and wait. He is working hard on being a better leash walker. He just gets so excited to meet new people, dogs and smells that he sometimes forgets his manners! When he is not investigating the great, snow covered outdoors, Dakota loves to snuggle anywhere warm and soft, especially if a belly rub looks to be in sight!


Dakota was adopted by his foster family and is happily enjoying lots of romps in the yard followed by loving belly rubs!
