Nobody loves us more than Dakota!
The shelter staff called a couple of days later and asked us to come and take a look, they said she'd be a good family dog. My husband and I went to meet her without the kids first, we knew that if they met her and we decided she was not a good fit that they''d be heartbroken. But Dakota was a sweet girl and we decided to go through with the adoption.
She was four years old when she came home with us, the same age as our daughter. And like sisters they were both mischievous! Dakota liked to snatch something like a sock or toy off the floor and play keep away.
Dakota is 12 now. She has matured into a great lady. No one loves our family more than Dakota does. She is a constant companion to whoever is home. She's up until the last person goes to bed and is up as soon as someone else is up. She has never met a person that she didn't like.
And to think I almost passed her up!
