Facts about Dakota3

  • Breed: Border Collie/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
We saved Dakota from a high kill shelter as she was running out of time. We were told she had possible kidney stones and was urinating blood and needed out ASAP per shelter vets documentation, with surgery needed to remove the stones. She was utd on shots, spayed and good with other dogs per shelter, which we have since discovered she certainly is protective of her humand and isn't really friendly towards other animals. We immediately took her to the vet and upon examination, and x-rays he told us he couldn't justify doing surgery, because he did not feel or see any stones. Dakota has begun her heart worm treatment and is doing great with her foster. Dakota will continue on her heart worm treatment, and will be spayed very soon. She is listed as Border/Collie/Shep. Chocolate, born 3/23/2013. She was an Owner surrender at a high kill shelter. She is available for adoption but must complete her heartworm treatment & spay surgery. She probably would be better in a home by herself, or with just one other dog. Previous owner said on intake sheet, she likes children (probably older children, not unsteady toddlers), dogs, cats and livestock, but we believe she would need re-introduced to other animals prior to adoption. Her breed is very protective and needs a strong human leader in the household. Download an application at our website: wwwcarolinahelpingpawsrescue.org

About Carolina Helping Paws Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our journey started when we took in a Chocolate Lab named Roxie. We brought her into our home setting and our hearts took over from there. She is our Inspiration and she is still with us today.
We are a volunteer group of animal loving people who are the voice for as many as we can be. We can't look into the eyes of an animal and not see the soul that is there. We can't turn our heads and let it be someone's place to help. We all must do whatever is necessary. After that being said, we can't do it alone. We need all the volunteers, help, donations and sharing we can get. We are always looking for fosters to step up to save a life. We provide the food and vetting, we ask that you open your heart and home to help them to reach their final forever home. We are just a stepping stone to their forever home. You can help make that happen. If anyone is interested in anyway to helping our cause we welcome you. We always need fundraising ideas, people to help with fundraiser.
We save animals from shelters, abuse cases, neglect and the poor souls who are dumped. We encourage anyone to lend a helping hand in some way. Doing something small is better than not doing anything at all.
