Here is a photo of our sweet darling new family member, Dakota. We got her, of all places, from Freecycle! She has a driving desire to please her humans and is just a sweetheart ♥ She is part Pointer and part Pit Bull (or should I say Staffordshire Terrier?). I just prefer the classic American term, Mutt. I think that mixed breeds are really the best anyway.
I am just so glad that we "found" her and that she has found us. The kids are ecstatic, since they have wanted a dog for such a long time. The kids have already discovered that she loves to chase the red sighting light from one of our Nerf guns and they are using it to teach her to close open cabinet doors. When she learns this trick (if?) I will post video.
