Dakota is a gorgeous little 3 month old pup that needs a loving family. She was dumped at only a few weeks old and now needs a loving home that will provide structure, support, and training that the extremely smart, intelligent, and loving breed needs. She is a sweetie and very smart and active. She has an actively curious personality and knows no fear. She loves to try and play with the bigger pups and is still learning to understand their signals when they are done playing and don't want to engage. A home with large breed experience is best to make sure she gets the best out of life and will be an amazing spoiled princess. She is smart and she does learn fast, but she has already shown that she can be a little headstrong, even as a baby. We will require that owners continue further training with Dakota since she is a baby, and training helps enhance bonding, and prevents unwanted behavioral issues down the road.

About Davis Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Davis Animal Rescue began as a small single individual ran mission to save lives and over the last few years has grown to become an all volunteer pre-vet student and community supported private rescue . Slowly students banded together and formed a small organization that eventually branched out and began to work under large well known rescues to save dogs and cats from euthanasia at shelters all over. Through social media, Davis Animal Rescue was able to succefully reach out to surrounding areas and help rescue and do TNR. We continue to welcome other rescue groups and partners in our alliance to save animals and push for shelter reform and affordable pet care for low income communities. We are not affiliated with any shelter or other rescue, but do welcome community support and growth through team work.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold monthly adoption events at PetCo, and other adoption sites with our partner rescue. Potential adopters are welcome to come out and meet the animals or set a meeting with the foster. Please check back for new dates set.

As of now, applicants can only meet foster dogs and cats in the fosters home. We have no set date for an adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption process

1)We require an initial application to ensure that the animal being inquired about will be a good fit for the potential adopters.

2) Shortly after, the foster for the animal being inquired about will contact the applicant and answer any questions or concerns and proceed with a meeting. We can not guarantee a response for every applicant but we do our best. If you have not heard back from a volunteer then in most cases the dog or cat is adoption pending or we have closed off application due to an overwhelming response.

3) A home check is mandatory to complete any dog adoptions. Cat adoptions are subject to approval with the coordinator and the foster. The home visit is to ensure the atmosphere is safe and conducive to healthy growth and development for the animal.
4) Adoption finalization - upon approval of both the foster and the coordinator or the adoption manager, the adoption can be finalized if the animal has already been vetted and an adoption contract and adoption fee will be required.

5) All cats and dogs are exposed to other cats and dogs unless otherwise noted. We make no guarantee as to any animals lineage, disposition, or medical history. We disclose any information we have about animals but most come in with unknown histories. We do any necessary medical care prior to adoption along with the rescues standard, spay and neuter, vaccination, and microchiping protocol.

*****your inquiry submission does not guarantee an adoption. We can't hold animals, applicants should be ready to adopt or we will place their application. On hold until such a time comes when there will be adequate time for adjustment and bonding with your new companion. Adopters must meet dogs and cats In their foster homes, for both the animals safety and the fosters, we will deny any application that tries to go around that. Please read all of the procedures before inquiring***
