Another Roadside Rescue:
Dakota's Story

It's a testament to the dedication of NTSRI volunteers that, when the phone call came late one Sunday night that a Samoyed needed help near Waco, Texas, the volunteer didn't blink an eye before jumping in the car to go to his aid. When she arrived, she found Dakota and his owner on the side of the road.  The owner's girlfriend was a long-haul truck driver who had kicked man and dog out, pretty much in the middle of nowhere.  Although the owner did not want to give him up, there was no way for him to return to his out-of-state home with Dakota, so tearful good-byes were said.  Although NTSRI tried to work with the owner to return Dakota to him when he was financially able to take him back, that sadly did not materialize, and Dakota found himself up for adoption.

That's when Shaun came into the picture.  He and Dakota "clicked" from the very beginning, and they've been the best of buddies ever since.
