|Dakota is a stunning bi-color with a beautiful feminine head and elegant neck with a perfect earset. Her
eyes are almost as dark as her face and shine like her amazing coat. She has a nice croup, fluid
movement, tight feet and short hocks, and most importantly a temperament to die for. She is the
sweetest girl, and has won my heart even as a 7 week old puppy. I decided to keep a puppy from her
litter when I wasn't planning to, and I have never regretted the decision. She is the best dog I could ask
for-smart, attentive, sweet, protective and always willing to work and please me. She is always willing to
work, but loves to play.
Dakota's show career ended early when she lost a tooth from an unfortunate boarding mishap. Despite
this, she is a beautiful adult and is competing in both agility and obedience. Dakota has been training in
both obedience and agility since she was only a few months of age. She has earned her companion dog
title (CD) and Beginner Novice (BN) in obedience and her rally excellent (RE). She is currently
competing in agility and had earned all of her Novice (NA, NAJ, NAP, NJP, NF, NFP) and Open titles
(OA, OAJ, OAP, OJP). She finished her open titles and has moved up to Excellent earning her AXP and
AJP titles and is now competing at the Masters level. She is also working towards her Graduate Novice
title and currently has 2 legs. Dakota also herds sheep and earned her PT title on sheep!
She has had all of her OFAs completed-she has EXCELLENT rated hips, she is also certified normal
elbows, cardiac, thyroid, eyes (Cerf), and is tested clear/clear for degenerative myelopathy (DM).
Dakota earned her TC (temperament certification) from the GSDCA in April 2010. Dakota is now retired,
but spent time in the whelping box, having a litter in 2010 and 2011. She has proven to be a great
producer as well. See her pups here or visit Eureka's page. Dakota is enjoying retirement at 11.5 years
of age and still loves to play.
