Dakota is always looking for fun!

LI's Adorable Adoptables is a weekly column by Allison Matos, a lifelong Long Island resident who has been advocating animal adoption since 2012. Allison's weekly posts highlight local animals in need of adoption, and cover general animal welfare topics as well.

Did someone say they were looking to adopt the perfect dog this weekend? Read all about Logan, Nik Nak and Dakota!  

Logan is an adorable 3 ½  half year old brindle Hound/ Retriever mix who came to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter as a stray. This awesome pooch is house and crate trained, and even knows multiple commands. Logan is a great dog who would do best as the only dog in his new forever home. Logan is a gorgeous, fun and playful boy who truly needs to get into a home, and out of the shelter. He is a volunteer favorite, so head on down and meet Logan right away.  For more information, please contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter at 516-785-5220.

With a Nik Nak Paddy Wack give a dog a HOME…could anyone ask for a sweeter dog than Nik Nak? This female hound mix is approximately 1 year old weighing about 20 lbs and is a low rider (short legs).  Nik Nak is described as a sweet and loving gal who is not only adorable but also crate trained!  Won't you consider opening your heart and home to this sweet little lady?  For more information, contact the fabulous staff at Sweetest Dog Rescue.

Also at Sweetest Dog Rescue and patiently awaiting their forever home is Dakota. This beautiful 1 year old female is a breathtaking silver lab mix.  She weighs approximately 38 lbs and is loving and playful. Dakota arrived at Sweetest Dog rescue  very pregnant, giving birth 3 days after she arrived. She had 6 gorgeous puppies, all of which have found forever homes, and so now it’s Dakota’s turn to find a family of her own.  For more information contact Sweetest Dog Rescue.
