Project Description


Australian Kelpie & Retriever Mix
Adult | Male | Medium | Black




Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.




A kelpie/retriever mix, Dakota is a gorgeous 2 year old 48 pound male with a pleasing personality and unique appearance and coat. His retriever bloodline has provided him with fur rather than hair: thick and dense, his coat is more waterproof than a dog with hair and will shed far less than most dogs. Dakota is an energetic guy, smart and submissive. He does well with people and other dogs although he would need a slow intro to cats. Dakota walks nicely on a leash, rides well, and is doing great on kennel training. He loves water and will find it whether it’s a pond or a bucket! A great dog for an active family, this smart young dog will be fantastic with training. If interested, read about kelpies. They’re working dogs, loyal and smart, but combined with his retriever breeding, Dakota will make an excellent addition to an active home. We work by appointment only, so please contact Highland Lakes Canine Rescue at (830) 693-0569 for more information or to set up an interview with one of our dogs.
