Hooray for Dakota-2!!

All about Dakota-2
This 1 year old boy is a beautiful red and white beagle whose life got a very bad start. You see, he was used as bait in a fighting operation in West Virginia. The fact that he made it out alive is a miracle and only because an eye witness beckoned the authorities who immediately confiscated him. He was severely injured with bite wounds over much of his body. We have many pictures of him after the multiple surgeries it took to put him back together. The good news is that he is a very sweet dog who actually gets along great with other dogs…..unless they look like a wolf. The fighting dogs were wolf hybrids.
Dakota’s abusers were prosecuted in court and he was released to our organization. As soon as his wounds were all healed up, we brought him via airline to Portland, where he is thriving in a wonderful foster home. Dakota-2 is an energetic guy who is also a cuddle bug. He is playful and quick, but he’s also happy to curl up with you and watch a movie by your side. He has a typical beagle appetite and loves treats.
