I am trying to talk my husband into an older puppy as a companion for Dakota. Unfortunately, the only chance I have of him giving-in is to be very specific--which will be a dog hard to find. He loves Dakota and will only consider a female version of the same dog: light colored, lab-like coat and located in Northern California . . . if anybody hears of anything coming close to this . . . a rehome would be fine; I would love to help a dog in need.
