|6/8/16: Lakota has changed so much in the past 3 months.
He is becoming more trusting and more social towards strangers.
He will still need an experienced adopter who uses 100% positive
reinforcement. Lakota wants to be loved but he does not want
anyone to force him to change to fit their criteria.
He is very sad having lost his yard friend Xena. She got adopted. I tried him with Willow and that went fine, but Willow was not happy away from her sister.
3/14/16: Lakota tested HW negative. No more health issues. He will be entering a 4 to 6 week behavioral management program in a few weeks.
10/20/15: Lakota has become protective of his space against strangers. He remains unpredictable about what humans he will like and which he won't. He wants to hog human attention and will not share it with other dogs. He is sharing a human apartment with Xena now since the other dogs he shared space with have since been adopted. He needs someone who does not have many visitors, is quite rural and secure fencing. Anyone approved to adopt this beautiful challenging boy would need to come and spend 2 days with him before taking him home.
5/24/15: Lakota has a new yard mate. He loved
playing with Gracie Lynn, but she is Ms. Hudini and keeps leaving
him for the house dogs. Lakota gets along with Breeze. Lakota is laid back
and not much into playing with her.
He got along with Auna. She is shy and goes with the flow.
The different dog personalities shows me a lot who Lakota might get
along with, dog wise. Young or old, playful or laid back, but
not overly dominate nor an alpha.
12/5/14: Lakota is getting very trusting but he has definite opinions on who he likes and who he does not. Any family approved to adopt him must be willing to come here and spend 2 days getting to know him and letting him learn to trust them. No exceptions.
Unsure what breed Lakota is but has double dews. Possibly a mix of Pyr and rough coat Anatolian but possibly Ovcharka.
7/8/14: Lakota has become very secure in his surroundings and
very gentle. He is going to make a great companion. He
is eating out of my hand. Bonded with a 12 year old visitor and
cried when she left. Enjoys attention, brushed and ears scratched.
