Pet of the Week – Dakota

Dakota digs her downtime. All she needs is someone special to spend it with her. 

Dakota is an 8-year-old, spayed, black Labrador retriever and she’s looking for a home where it’ll be just the two of you, where she can hang out and just relax.

But don’t think Dakota is a couch potato. This dog still has enough energy for a nice walk and play time. See if you two click at the County’s animal care center in Carlsbad located at 2481 Palomar Airport Road. 

Ask for Dakota by name or by her animal ID number, A1696243. If she’s the sweetheart for you, you can take her home for $35 and that price includes a microchip, vaccinations and a free veterinary examination. For more information call (619) 767-2675 or visit
