Story
Dakota is a young adult probably 3 years old. He weighs about 65 lb. When he arrived he was heartworm positive. He has completed treatment as is doing great. Dakota is friendly but can be distrustful of strangers at first. He walks well on leash and will sit when asked. He can pull a bit. I use a training collar on him. He is well mannered. He will jump up but I've not had him put his feet on me. He loves attention and enjoys going for hikes with me. He would become a devoted, protective companion. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested negative (on monthly heartworm and flea preventive) and are microchipped. Upon adoption, the microchip will be registered with your contact information and you will be eligible to activate a free 30 day health insurance policy.

Story
Murray's estimated birthdate is June 2021. He is a returned adoption due to illness in family. They could no longer care for him. He is crate trained and housebroken. He walks well on leash if using a "gentle leader". He can be very strong but is compliant with this type collar. He is very friendly and enjoys attention. He loves going for walks/hikes. He gets along well with other non dominant dogs. He would do best in a home without cats. He would enjoy an active family. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested negative (on monthly heartworm and flea preventive) and are microchipped. Upon adoption, the microchip will be registered with your contact information and you will be eligible to activate a free 30 day health insurance policy.

Story
This is a very sweet boy with only 3 legs  .  His amputation doesnt appear to have been done by a vet so we can only guess how he got like this.  He gets around very well and is playful and smart.  He is a special boy and we are looking for a very special home for him.  We can only guess at his breed mix,,   not at all sure.  We can tell you he is loving and sweet and we believe him to be over year old, not likely to get any larger than the 21 pounds he now weighs.    ##1975975##
