SPECIAL NEEDS BOY IN KINGS MOUNTAIN NC WAITS FOR HIS FOREVER HOME Dakota is a perfect boy! His sweetness is infectious. As soon as you meet him, his eyes reach into your heart and steal it away. He just has so much love to give, he's practically bursting at the seams! But little Dakota is different from other dogs. He's hearing impaired and because he can't hear that well, he uses visual signals to understand and learn. He's completely obedience trained and takes visual cues just like hearing dogs take voice commands. Take a look at the video below if you'd like to see just how smart he is when he goes through the paces with his trainer. But when he's not training or sniffing out a new scent, he just wants to snuggle up in your lap. If you're looking for a best bud, Dakota is your guy. Dakota would do best in a low key home where he can get used to a routine. He is timid around some men but with a little time to realize he is safe, he comes around. His foster mom said he's the perfect house guest. He always does his business outside, never chewed anything, is good in the crate and quiet. He has known to be dog selective at the kennel but in the foster's home, he got along great with his foster sister who is a confident, non-reactive dog. They played well together and Dakota was respectful of her, never trying to take her food and waiting for her to get a treat before he did even though he is food motivated. He did well walking on a leash in the neighborhood and is as quiet as a mouse riding in the car. Dakota is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative and microchipped.
