I wasn't sure at first, but I figured anything would be better than how I feel right now.  I made a great decision, I was taken to the groomer and the vet and now the purple is almost all gone and my burns are all healed up.  I feel soooo much better.  I just went to the vet again and got neutered and all of my shots.  I am of course heartworm negative and I have taken my heartworm medicine every month.  My foster family is great, but I would love a family of my own.  I can be a little shy at first and may even growl at you, but once I know you are safe then I will snuggle with you all the time.  Hey I was mistreated in the past, so I have to be cautious of who I trust.  I love to play with my foster fur brothers and sisters and even the little human baby who lives here.  Come on you know you want me just email my foster family at dakota@dakotarescue.org and I can come home with you!

Freeway Freeway-Adopted!-Meet Freeway- Shiba Inu mix, 2 years old, weighs between 30-35 lbs. His founders were on their way to the airport for a week's vacation, they were shocked to see a dog in the middle of the freeway with a can stuck on his head. Other cars on the freeway were swerving to avoid him, but they knew he was an accident waiting to happen. They couldn't just leave him there so they pulled over to the shoulder and reversed back to him. He wasn't moving from his spot in the middle of the lane so it was easy for them to approach him. They thought they had luck on their side when a Harris County Sheriff pulled up behind our car to protect them from the traffic. He helped them pull the can off his head, but unfortunately, he said he couldn't take the dog because they were not allowed in their vehicles. They asked him to contact Animal Control, but he informed them that they don't answer calls on weekends. His answer to the situation was to place the dog off the freeway in a nearby grassy area. They didn't think that was the right thing to do. They remembered a new pet boarding facility that had recently opened up near Hobby Airport (Pet Paradise Resort) and they drove there to see if they could help out. They were very kind and offered to board him for them and take him to the vet they work with the next day. "Freeway" remained with them until they returned from their vacation a week later. Freeway gets along with other dogs, but their dog doesn't. Freeway was meant to live and to find his forever home. Please consider giving him that home.

Tina Tina-Adopted!- She is a 2 year old Beagle mix, approximately 26 lbs. UTD on all of her shots and has been spayed. She is a very special girl that requires some patience and a bit of hand holding, but once you understand her she can be a bundle of joy. She sometimes becomes frightened with loud noises. This can sometimes cause her to jump and crouch down. When walking she will do much better when following other dogs, but if there are any loud noises or barking it can trigger some fear. She does great with other dogs and thoroughly enjoys playtime with them once comfortable. Once she trusts you, she can be a love bug and lap dog for hours. Very low key and mellow and she makes the best couch potato partner. She is a very easy dog to care for because she just wants to lay around, only minor hiccup will be when needing some encouragement to go outside and back in when needed. Poor Tina, not her fault, she just needs some patience and time to build up her confidence. Once she trusts her new owners she will be the best dog ever. Please consider Tina for your home.

Missy Missy - Adopted!

Meet Missy - Great Dane, approx 2-3 years old. Her story is typical, found abandoned and very underweight and under nourished. A passer by saw her as he drove home from work living in an empty lot.

Since she had already gotten use to being fed by David she allowed us to get close of enough to put a slip leash on her. She has been vetted, found no heartworms. She only weighs 72 lbs which Great Danes weigh between 125-150 lbs. She is very calm, very sweet and friendly. She is gaining weight will be spayed this week and will be ready to go to a home that will give her the life she deserves. If you're that person/family please contact us.

Lombardy Lombardy - Adopted!

Meet Lombardy - What a great rescue story. Our Lombardy truly came from the streets, a homeless stray. He was living on the streets close to a year, but because of his skittish personality it took a long time to approach him. But he was always hungry and that is how the relationship started. It took many months of trusting, but he finally became more approachable. As time went on he was finally caught and taken into the vet. As many of our street dogs are, he is heartworm positive, although he is currently being treated. Other than that, great healthy boy, we believe a hound mix, maybe some lab. He is approximately 2 years old, healthy teeth and has beautiful gold eyes. He has immediately become more relaxed as he is around humans more and more and surprisingly he is great on a leash. He gets along great with other dogs, he never has had an aggressive personality and is showing even more of his sweet side each day. When he was a street dog, you would catch him hanging out with other dogs and even stray cats with no issues. Basically he wouldn't hurt a fly. If you want a low key, mellow loving and loyal dog, Lombardy is the rescue for you. His name came from the street he was rescued from. Please consider giving this homeless stray a chance. Lombardy is up-to-date with routine shots and neutered. For more photos check out Lombardy on Petfinder...PetFinder - Lombardy

Quiet, doesn’t bark unless he needs to, not hyper but does enjoy playing in the backyard. It took him awhile to learn how to walk on a leash but with some training he finally learned.

I am UTD on all of my shots, neutered, weigh approx 25 lbs. I get along great with other dogs and children. I am housebroken, quiet, don’t chew things and just want to find my forever home.

She already has a frail, 12 year old, small dog and is unable to keep Hunter. He is a neutered male approximately 55-60 pounds, up to date on all of his shots.

Nikki Nikki - Adopted!

Our female English Bulldog that was very loved. But her previous parents could not keep her inside the house. Nikki was adopted by Kaye Stone who is one of our coordinators. She also lives with another English bulldog and they are very happy together.

Stanley Stanley - Adopted!

He was found homeless. We took him into our program and the family who found him fostered him. It wasn’t long and they fell in love with Stanley and asked if they could adopt him. Of course we said “yes”…..another “successful” foster failure!  

Honey Honey - Adopted!

Was found living at a Shell gas station she had been living there for over a year. She was rescued by one of our Directors and taken to the vet. Honey was our first rescue into our Dakota Rescue program. A special thanks to Robin Walker for being Honey's Dakota Angel. Honey was adopted by a very special couple. They have truly given Honey her forever loving home.
