Rescue Me ID: 17-12-18-00482Noel (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 

    My name is Noel and I am from Las Cruces, New Mexico. My owner took me to jail when I was sick and pregnant along with my brother. We were both very sick but the rescue saved us. We were treated for internal parasites and cleaned up. The rescue thought I was healthy but my foster mom noticed I was leaking a dark fluid and rushed me to the ER. They did Xrays and ultrasounds and said I had two dead puppies inside me. They rushed me into an emergency c section because the decaying puppies were killing me. I thought that was the worst of it but then, from surgical complications, I became anemic and they couldn't figure out why. They ... (Read More)gave me a blood transfusion and that didn't work and I was still so sick. They had to do surgery a second time but that one fixed me right up. They say I was touch and go for about a week but I am all better now and happy that is behind me. I thought I was getting a forever home with my brother but that didn't happen because someone adopted him because they already had another female Akita. Now I am jealous and waiting for a forever home of my own. I'm really the more awesome of the two of us - I am loaded with personality! I am bubbly and my enthusiasm for life is infectious so if you want to be happy all of the time, please adopt me because I know the key to life is to enjoy every single minute! I am fun fun fun and love everyone, everyone human that is! With dogs I am more selective, I like to be the boss because I am large and in charge! IF you have a laid back male who will let me boss him around, I will test him out but I am really more than enough Akita for you, I promise! I also learn really fast. When I was rescued, I had lived in a back yard with little to no interaction but I learned potty training, crate training, and how to sit super fast. I learned some about walking on a leash but I still get super excited and want to pull sometimes so the rescue says I need gentle leader and harness with a chest clasp for the leash. They know all of my tricks to make me behave unfortunately. AARTA says I am a really nice representation of the breed. I think that's their way of calling me pretty which of course I am! They also say you will be instantly enthralled with my beauty... but spend a bit of time with me and you will see that I am outgoing and affectionate and loving. They say when you meet me, you will fall in love. Please submit an application and come meet me soon. I can become a member of your family together for as little as a $300 adoption fee.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-17-00157Dasher (male)

Akita    Age: Young 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 Dasher and I am from Las Cruces, New Mexico. My owner took me to jail when I was sick, malnourished and bleeding when I tried to go to the bathroom, along with my pregnant sister. We were both very sick but the rescue saved us. I was in critical care for the first week and not looking so good but the rescue didn't give up on me. I had supportive care while we were treated for internal parasites and cleaned up. They say I was touch and go for about a week but I am all better now and happy that is behind me. I have gained thirty pounds since then!! I thought I was getting a forever home with my sister but the rescue decided, ... (Read More)now that we are both feeling better, she may be a bit bossy for me - finally someone noticed! I wouldn't mind a new sister, as long as she isn't so bossy. I'm very easy to get along with. I am very sweet and calm and have learned how to walk well on a leash, that was weird to begin with, but now I have that all figured out. The rescue said I was someone's yard ornament, because I was so dirty, scared of people, and not potty trained but I have been really working hard on my social skills! The rescue says I am awesome now. I learn really really fast. I picked up what this potty training was all about very fast. I thought you were always supposed to go anywhere but I hadn't spent time in a house before. Now that I have, I know not to do that inside. I also learned to sit for treats. I also practiced crate training - it is not my favorite but the rescue said I needed to learn to get a really nice home and I want that so I gave in. I also respect barriers like expens and baby gates. I'm even a good boy for baths once I figured out they weren't trying to drown me with the hose, now I like being all cleaned up and shiny. AARTA says I am a really nice representation of the breed. I think that's their way of calling me handsome which, of course, I am! They also say you will be instantly enthralled with my beauty... but spend a bit of time with me and you will see that I am very affectionate and loving once I come out of my shell. I love to lean against you and be rubbed. They say when you meet me, you will fall in love. Please submit an application and come meet me soon. I promise to be on my best behavior because I really want to know what its like to have someone love me! I can become a member of your family together for as little as a $300 adoption fee. Email us at AARTA,AkitaAdvocates@gmail.com for an adoption application. Our process includes a meeting with you, your family including other pets and/or roommates, reference check, home visit, and adoption fee.

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 

    My name is Jackson and I am a BIG boy. They say I am an Akita mix - I guess that means I am double special! I am tall and well over 100 pounds! That just means there is more of me to love and I am a lover boy! My favorite things are long walks on the beach, just kidding, I have never been to the beach before but, if you want to, I am game. I will do anything you want to do and I LOVE LOVE LOVE water! My rescue gives me puppy pools in the summer with misters and I LOVE IT! I lay down and try to eat the water, they say I am a silly boy. I also love ice cubes - toss me one, you'll see. I pretty much love everything about water! I love ... (Read More)to play with toys - any toys. I know how to catch a Frisbee and play with balls. I love stuffed animals too. I am down with car rides - anywhere you want to go, I would love to go too. I know how to sit, stay and shake. Also, I promise I will try really hard to learn anything else you want to teach me. The rescue says I have not lived with another dog however, but did used to play with other dogs and might be willing to share my home with a submissive larger breed female dog companion. My favorite would be to have you all to myself though! I am seven years young and super healthy and have a lot of love to give so please fill out an application and come meet me! Jackson can become a member of your family for as little as a $100 adoption fee. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk!

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-16-00642Zoe (female)

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 

    My name is Zoe. I am very sweet. People don't want to adopt me because I am ten years young but I don't understand why! I am so healthy, I don't even have arthritis. I have zero health issues and I have lots of years left to shower you with hugs and kisses! I am the best behaved dog you will ever meet. I will do anything you tell me to if you say it in a way I understand. Here's stuff I am used to so you know just how awesome I am. The family who adopted me as a puppy used canes, walkers and wheel chairs before their health required them to give me up. A foster home let me ride in a convertible with the top down and a seat belt harness on- ... (Read More)oh my gosh that was so much fun - so many sniffs to enjoy! I love to walk and behave perfectly on a leash of course! I love to sit at your feet and get chest scratches and if you don't mind I will show my affection by wrapping my paw around yours so that you know I appreciate you! I'm fine around pools that aren't fenced and never fall in. I have a stomach of steel and love trying new things. I like carrying stuffed animals around and never tear them up! I love naps!!! I behave for car rides but don't get what all the hubbub is about - its a way to get from point a to b, there's no thrill for me there, unless its a convertible! I do NOT like crates! I'm crate trained (I am rolling my eyes) but I really hate it and never understand why humans want to put me in a box. I swear I won't misbehave in your home. My foster mom can tell you, I am a good girl! I just don't like the box, it makes me nervous. I hate fireworks and thunderstorms but my foster mom gives me cbd oil and I get through them easily now. Lastly, there's enough of me to go around, you don't need another pet and neither do I! Come meet me please, you'll see I have been totally honest about myself and I am really an awesome girl!

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 

    Hi my name is Kaizen and I am eight years young and a former model - check out my glamor shots! I am beautiful and super sweet and would love to hang out with you, especially if you're a man! I love men! Women are great too! And especially if you like to walk, yes --- walk walk walk walk walk. I know that word very well! When I see my foster mom pick up a leash, I get super excited because one of my most favorite things to do is go for walks!! I'm told I walk very well on leash too so they say that's a bonus for you. I also dance around and play with toys, and get the zoomies if we have a yard when you get home from work or errands ... (Read More)because I am soooo happy to see you again (and maybe we'll go for another walk soon!). I don't really need a yard though, because hey, I'm a pretty chill girl if you know what I mean -- I think that's why my nickname is Zen. I can be a couch potato all day and night until it's time for a walk. I would be just as happy with you in an apartment too, let's just take some nice walks together. I am super trustworthy in your home and promise I won't mess it up! I don't even need a crate but I am crate trained! I know tricks too, I am super smart like that! Come meet me and you will see - I am the best! Kaizen can become a member of your family for as little as a $100 adoption fee. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
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! Katsu can become a member of your family for as little as a $50 adoption fee.

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.
