Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Trent is a 2 year old Akita Chow mix who would love a new home with a female doggy companion. He is affectionate and will give kisses, and wants to be hugged and scratched. Volunteers at the county shelter were very fond of him. He is still trying to figure out what is happening to him since his many days as a stray, so a home that is calm and has a routine schedule would suit him best. If someone is home most of the time while he is transitioning, that would be even better. While he is good with other dogs, he may not be good with children, so a home where the kids are at least 15 yrs old would be appropriate. See all our dogs @ ... (Read More)www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

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.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Keva. She is a 70 lb Blue Heeler Cattle Dog mix . We would like to rehome her so she can use her herding and her cattle dog skills. She is energetic and loves to play with all her might. Keva is crate trained. She knows she must have 'manners' to be lady like. She knows to sit prior to receiving her food and she is learning to sit prior to being greeted. Sometimes she is too excited to see her humans that she needs a minute to calm down. She is also very diva-like. She loves her belly rubs and thinks she is a lap dog more than not. She loves to be brushed and if you have the vacuum out; she likes to be vacuumed as well. She does ... (Read More)better with medium sized dogs. She also loves ice and she will dunk for the ice cubes if put in her water dish. She will come with her hammock as she loves to hang out with her humans on the patio. When she was younger; she stayed with a pet sitter and came back with some bad habits; she does have food aggression and toy aggression. I do not know what happened and I regret that decision every day. I want to be honest and open with all aspects of her. Keva is a very sweet and protective pup. She is a very loyal pup and would make a great addition to a working farm or ranch. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We are in need of a loving home for our dog Blaze. She is a Brittany Spaniel/Cathoula and Akita/Golden Retriever mix. She's 5 years old. We have a 2 year old and a 3 month old and the dog has snipped at the 2 year old several times. It has become more frequent as the toddler is becoming more active and with the 2nd baby coming up we feel it will be too much for Blaze to handle. She recently went after the toddler pretty aggressively and we can not keep taking chances. We have tried various methods of behavior modification but nothing has worked. 99% of the time she the most loving, sweet dog and loves her humans. She very smart and really is ...

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 Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bear is a great dog, Mr. Personality, and the neighborhood Rockstar! Unfortunately, he is not good with other dogs or my horses. Now that I have baby foals, he is a danger to them and must be rehomed ASAP. It kill me, but he can t resist his prey drive. He's awesome with people (once introduced), loyal to a fault, and keeps coyotes at bay nightly! He does need to be the only animal. He loves to be groomed and brushed, sing, go for car rides, walks, and play ball endlessly, he's a lot of fun and a gorgeous dog too!

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

    Nikki is such a sweet dog and so affectionate. She will freely give kisses and will wash your whole face if you let her. Her training includes lie down, give paw, and go for a walk. Her owner died and left her wondering what happened to her life, and she has not adjusted well to shelter kennel living. She loves getting out for a car ride and a new adventure, and although she is 8, she looks about 4 years old. She has had a complete medical workup and is in good health.

    Who is the champion kisser in all the world? Me of course. Everyone I meet gets kisses from me. I am very affectionate and want to be with my people all the time. My coat is the thickest and most plush you have ever felt----I might win the Best Coat contest too! I am just a winner all around, and some family will be a winner when they pick me to take home. My best trick is to go into the down position for treats. I am what you would call a mature girl at age 10. Dutchess would do well with a male doggy companion of either medium or large size..

    I am Athena and I am a goddess. How could an Akita girl be anything other than devine. As the goddess of wisdom, I can tell you that I have perfect house manners, like kids, give hugs and love to cuddle. I am so smart, I know commands like sit, come, stay, speak, give paw, no lick, and I learned all the children in my past family by name and could go to each one. I like to give hugs with my favorite people, and if I am laying on the floor and put my paw up, I am asking to cuddle. I can play hide and seek with you too. Did I mention how cute I am? I am only 3 yrs old. But heed my advice--I do not want to live with other pets and need to be ... (Read More)your one and only. For that you will be rewarded with faithful companionship and devotion.

    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.

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 sweet, calm and loving and have excellent house manners. I would be a good companion for your other dogs and you, so please consider me. ...

    Cooper is one really cool dude. He is about 3 1/2 yrs old, loves people and kids and would just love to hang out with you. He readily sits for treats, but if you ignore him, his paw reminds you he is patiently waiting. He is comfortable in a crate, loves car rides to new places to explore, and is very affectionate. If he was not so big, he would make a good lap dog. He would prefer to be your one and only, so no other pets please. It seems like Cooper always has a smile on his face and love in his heart.

He knows some obedience commands, is easy to walk on leash, and is comfortable being crated if necessary He needs no further training and will fit in like he was always there. However, he is not too crazy about sharing his home with another dog, but would love kids and lots of people around. He is a social dog, but also loves to just hang out or go for an occasional car ride. He recently had blood work and a dental done, so he has a clean bill of health. We think Yuuki is ...

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 ...

Akita    Age: Senior

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

    I'm Wrigley and they say I'm a senior, but I'm pretty sure that just means ROCK STAR. I want a family who likes to walk so I can sniff and meet new people, who will take me for rides in the car, and I'll promise to love baths and grooming. Best of all would be if you like to give me scratches, especially butt scratches. I'd like a fluffy soft bed but I don't need much in the way of toys. Don't you think I'm a handsome Dude?

Akita Mix    Age: Young 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 

    I am Star, a 4 yr old gal who has come a long way since being with AARTA. I used to be shy, but now I am much more comfortable with new people and places. I might be OK with a male doggy companion if he is submissive enough. I love to go for walks or runs, I know sit and can use the doggy door. I have not lived with kids, but as long as they are at least 10 yrs old and well behaved, we could get along OK. One of my eyes has a bit of blue in it, which makes me unique. I can be very well behaved. All I want is a home where I will be loved. See all our dogs at www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. ...

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!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Yogi is a handsome boy whose posture seems to say 'I know I am the most handsome dude around'. He is a big boy of about 100 lbs. 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.

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.
