Dakota is a loving, funny, stubborn, (loud!) 5-year-old Shetland Sheepdog gentleman from Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Dakota is a Native American word meaning ‘trusted friend,’ and his name won the popular vote in a naming contest for a canine character in the new Amy Shojai book, “Lost and Found!”

He loves eating bones, being brushed, modeling and playing with his ball, and he’s a great brother to Cody, the cat.

His mom, Caren Gittleman, says he can spell! (You’ll have to ask him about that…)

You can get to know the handsome and adored Dakota better on his mom’s Community Page, at his blog: Dakota’s Den, onFacebook and on Twitter @dakotasheltie.
