I have lived most of my life in North Carolina but I hear New England is the place to be. I lived on a farm back in NC. I was housetrained in my previous home and I traveled a lot with my previous family. I am a sweet older girl. I enjoy the attention that is given to me here at Dakin. However, there is nothing like being home. I enjoy going for walks and having some nice quiet time. I would really like to meet you and get to know you. If you’d like to learn more about me, I’ll be waiting for your visit at the Dakin adoption center in Leverett.

There are many lovely dogs in need of second chances at Dakin including purebred dogs.  If you are looking for a great companion, you can likely find your new best friend at an animal adoption center, through an animal control adoption program or through a breed rescue.  When thinking of adding to your family, we encourage you to Opt to Adopt!
