Rescue Me ID: 17-04-02-00426Zeus (male)

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Zeus just arrived at AARTA in Phoenix from our sister rescue Lone Star Akita Rescue in Texas. Just 2 years old, he was not getting the adoptive looks that he deserves. Zeus not only is playful and silly, but extremely friendly and ready for anything. His beautiful coat is pure white, and if you have a cookie, he knows sit, shake and down. He likes to roll over for tummy rubs, but in the next minute he is up for a game of chase. Zeus lived with a cat before and likely could again. And he might even like a submissive medium to large size female doggy companion in his new home. It only took 2 days and a multitude of volunteers to transport him ... (Read More)from TX to AZ, and even though he was handed off about every 2 hours to a new relay driver, he took it all in stride and even slept part of the way. He will undoubtedly make someone a wonderful companion. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Draco, welcome to Arizona. He comes from our sister rescue, Lone Star Akita Rescue, in Texas. He was not getting the adoption opportunities he deserves, so we hope AARTA can find this big goofy teddy bear his new forever home. As you might have heard, everything is bigger in Texas and Draco does not disappoint in that regard. He is a giant of a boy, about 135 lbs, but as sweet as they come. If you have been waiting for that perfect big boned Akita, he is your man so bring your chicken (that is his favorite) and come meet this mountain of an Akita. Draco is a young and healthy 8 years old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. ... (Read More)When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-24-00311Jackson (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jackson is ready for a little adventure and fun times. He loves to play ball, catch a Frisbee or eat ice cubes (seriously, when you go to the freezer, he wants you to toss him one). Car rides and playing with kids are also favorite pastimes. Jackson already knows sit, stay and shake. He has not lived with another dog so would really like to be the only pet; however, he did used to play with other dogs and might be willing to share his home with a submissive larger breed female dog companion. Jackson is a young and healthy 7 year old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. ... (Read More)Let's talk! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-10-00295Beija (female)

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beija (pronounced Bay-ja) is a big beautiful Akita girl. Her name means beautiful kisses in Japanese, and she lives up to that name. She is four and is great with people and kids despite her large size. However, Beija is a bit dog selective, in that she likes some and not others. A potential family should have no more than 1 very submissive male dog, and they will need to meet to be sure of compatibility. On the other hand, Beija would be perfectly happy being the only pet in the home. She has excellent house manners. Beija's family moved and the new landlord does not allow Akitas, so she is seeking a new place to settle in. See all our ...

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Mya (pronounced Maya)! She is a sweetheart of a girl who needs a new home! She is very friendly and lived all six years of her life as an indoor family member! She is potty and leash trained and well behaved loose in her home so her family never needed to crate her previously. She knows how to use a Doggy door as well! She likes running with her person, she is used to an active lifestyle and can jog two miles on lead with a running buddy no problem. She grew up with other dogs but does not like puppies or babies - no crying please. Mya is very smart too and knows verbal commands as well as sign language! She is ready for her forever ...

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am Katsumi but you can call me Sumi, that is what I know best. When I am happy to see you (which is all the time) I actually smile and do a little dance. I am embarrassed that my family shaved me down, I feel naked. But you probably already know that dog hair grows fast (especially during shedding season when it is everywhere). I have been living with other dogs and cats and like having children around. I respond to commands like sit, stay and come, and am always looking to learn new things. The new home I dream of has someone around most of the time, and/or a doggy friend (preferably a male dog). I love rides in the car, know how to use ... (Read More)the doggie door, but do not like being crated. I am a cuddle bug, and love to get scratches and tummy rubs; in fact, I will practically turn my head upside down in trying to get your attention so you will give me rubs! My family moved and cannot take me, and my foster home has a dog who does not like me, so I need to find my own new home. My health is excellent (on grain free food for minor allergy), my teeth are very clean, and I am a young 8 yrs old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Kane and affection is my game. While I like to explore and am curious, I prefer to stick close to my humans for companionship. I did live with a female doggy companion before and could do so again, as long as she is submissive. I am a sweet boy, who has a good energy level and perfectly white, clean teeth although I am about 7 years old. Show me a treat and I will sit for you. I promise I will be a good boy if you adopt me.

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am Kata, a gorgeous 2 yr old Akita girl who was down on my luck just a few months ago. I was found in the middle of nowhere, had had pups just a few months before, was thin and starving, and had a bad skin infection. Now I am so beautiful, even if I say so myself. I feel better too, now that I have healed and gained much needed weight. I am a frisky girl who loves my treats, plays 'pounce on the ball', and loves to run. I love all people because they give me the attention I crave, and I could live with a male doggy companion if he is submissive to me. I am a bit small for an Akita, but there is a lot of love packed into this small ... (Read More)package. I can not wait to see what my next adventure is, as I am sure the good folks at AARTA will find me the perfect home that will care for me like a princess. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-12-00716Teddy Girl (female)

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Need Foster or Adopter: Teddy Girl is a sweet and very passive dog who started life at a hoarder's home. She is very shy with people but does well with dogs. She would love a foster or adoptive home who would work on her social skills to become more outgoing. Having a confident, outgoing other dog in the home would go a long way to her becoming more comfortable with people. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will be rewarded by seeing Teddy Girl blossom. She knows how to use a doggy door, and walks nicely with you on leash without pulling. She is comfortable in a crate, and is used to going out of the yard into the big world. See ... (Read More)all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Zoe is a mature Akita girl who is sweet, gentle, and as calm as can be. However, she is ready to go hiking or take long walks if you are up to it. She spent most of her life with an older couple, including being around canes, walkers and wheelchairs, and is respectful of all those devices. She is very easy to walk on leash and does not pull. Zoe would prefer a home of all adults and she must be the only pet in the home. She has a whole vocabulary of words she knows, like byebye, treat, good girl, stay, down, give paw, and lay down.

Akita    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Special Needs: As a senior Akita girl of 11 1/2 yrs old, I am hoping not to have to live out my life in a kennel run. Please take me home with you. I am on 3 prescription meds for 1) arthritis aches, 2) help my liver function better, and 3) prevent bladder leakage when I sleep. I get along with other dogs very well (I lived with 7 in my last home, both males and females, from Chihuahua size to Pit Bull size), and a cat. You cannot get more compatible than that. Do not let my gray face fool you, it is my cuteness factor (so I am told). I am still very frisky and love to chase birds in the yard, but am not fast enough to catch any. I am ...

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am Kaizen, but I answer to Zen also. Show me a treat and I will show you my moves -- automatic sit, down or paw. Try to ignore me, and I will gently paw at you for attention. Give me a lap, and my head will be in it. I really, really like attention and I hope I can find a home without any other pets, because I do not want to live with other pets. You will not need anyone but me to keep you company. I can be very polite and greet you with a play bow. I recently went to the vet and had a full blood workup, and I am pretty healthy other than needing some thyroid pills, which I am told do not cost much in people money. Take me for a walk or a ... (Read More)ride in the car to new and exciting places, and you will see I have a lot of spunk for an older girl of 8. It would be best if any children in the home are at least 12 or older.See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I am a happy 4 year old Akita mix boy who is optimistic that my new home will come along soon. My tail is always wagging, and I like to clown it up a bit to make you laugh. I can entertain myself with squeaky toys all day long and I really love to learn new things. I can sit, go down so fast your head will spin, catch treats thrown up in the air, and know an obedience recall where I come to you, spin around and sit at your side. I would love to learn more new tricks that would earn me attention and treats. I love longs walks and would be an excellent hiker, jogging or rollerblade companion. I do not want to live with other pets, and ... (Read More)prefer that children are at least 10-12 yrs old. If you have an active lifestyle, I am ready to GO, GO, GO!

He is such a love, but goofy at the same time, and his antics will keep you amused and amazed. He is just a big baby that wants lots of love and attention. Yogi is well trained and will sit, down and shake for his treats and meals, and a new owner will need to be sure Yogi performs these on a regular basis. This boy thinks he should rule the house, and needs an alpha owner and family who can be sure Yogi behaves himself. He needs to know that he is loved and taken care of, but he also needs to know that he does not ... (Read More)run the household. Following a laser pointer is also a fun activity. Yogi is about 8 years old and wants to be the only pet in the home. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Arizona
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Arizona if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
