From the Foster:

Dakota is a very Sweet but Shy girl who is learning that humans can be loving and that life can be Good with living in a warm house, having good food and yummy treats to eat, soft dog beds to nap on . Dakota wants to be Loved and wants to trust , you can see it in her eyes. She is trying so hard to be a brave girl as she is starting to venture out on her own of her crate which is in my kitchen to explore the inside of my house and has started to engage with my other dogs to play. She also likes butcher bones and nylabones, She also likes treats , soft ones are her favorite. She is working on her housetraining and crate training along with discovering how much fun toys are. Dakota needs a Patient Loving home with Positive reinforcement so she can continue her confidence building. She also needs another friendly dog living in the home as she looks to another dog for confidence/companionship.  Dakota needs a Secure Totally Fenced Yard as she is a flight risk and the leash is still new to her. Because fast movements still scare her she should not be in a home with small children. Dakota is such a Sweetie as I see that sparkle in her eye, a tail wag when I talk to her, and she is starting to find her voice now that she knows she is Safe and  Loved , She just needs a home with lots of Love and Patience to help her continue to be the dog that I see blossoming in front of  me!
