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

    WOW! CHECK OUT MY PICTURE! Am I a happy handsome boy or WHAT? My life started out rough. My previous owner abandoned me and left me tied to a fence to figure life out all by my lonesome. Now, since I have been staying here at High Desert Angels For Animals, my life is better Waaaay Better! I have fun time with my caretakers who are happy to play ball with me. I have other dog friends and I even have a best friend. Her name is Honey.My Honey is an older female and she is very wise. Honey says that I am very special.She told me that this would be a good time for me to start meeting people ... (Read More)so that my family waiting for a special dog like me can find me. I have learned to listen to my Honey when she gives me good advice. I'm counting on you to heed Honey's good advice too! ( I have been neutered and microchipped and I'm current on my vaccinations).

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Black Jack is a LOOKER! We watched as a sense of CALM settled over him once he realized he was safe at #AkitaRanch. It will take a few days to get to know him better. We feel he would do best as an only pet and in a home with no children. He responds to basic commands. Email apassionforpaws@gmail.com for adoption information

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cedar is a very handsome dog in need of a dominant breed experienced owner who is willing to work with him and tolerate his eccentricities. Cedar first came into rescue from an abusive environment and it took a long time to gain his trust. He was afraid to be handled or even touched, afraid to walk on a leash, and afraid to even approach anyone at first. He has learned to take his treats gently, be walked on a leash and will be affectionate with someone that he knows and loves but it may take some time to get there. Cedar is a very intelligent and sensitive dog. He is playful and active and likes to chase after a ball. Because of his ... (Read More)history, Cedar must be placed in an adult only home with no children or other animals. If you are able to provide Cedar the understanding and TLC that he needs and will be patient with him, please email apassionforpaws@gmail.com (Less)

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chanel is a very calm and gentle Akita female. Weighing in at about 85 lbs currently, Chanel could use a little more exercise and toning. Chanel was discarded by her former owner at an extremely overcrowded public shelter and the shelter was told that she was aggressive to other animals, but we have had quite a different experience. Chanel has gotten along with Barney, a large male Akita and has become quite maternal with baby India. Chanel may just be a typical selective Akita who picks and chooses her friends, so if you are interested and have another dog a meet and greet would be required. Chanel is patient with being bathed and groomed ... (Read More)and loves being indoors with her people. Please email apassionforpaws@gmail.com to come and meet her (Less)

Akita    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cooper is a young male Akita who was surrendered by his former owner along with the larger and calmer male Akita Brando. Although both dogs get along, Cooper has a higher energy level and will sometimes bother Brando when Brando is just trying to relax. Cooper exhibits a lot of puppy-ish behavior and has not been trained to walk on leash and can be jumpy/mouthy. He would do best in a breed experienced home that knows how to handle, work with, and socialize a young male Akita. Larger/older, big dog-savvy and respectful children would be a better fit since he can be too much for smaller kids, Please email apassionforpaws@gmail.com to meet ... (Read More)him. (Less)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Diesel is a BIG 2 year old weighing in at just over 100 lbs. He has shorter fur and a jowly mastiff face but the pointed ears and a double curled tail like an Akita. He is generally pretty mellow but does have protective tendencies and should not be in a home with small children. He is reserved with new people but can be very loving with family. Like most Akitas he is selective about canine companions and seems to prefer females over other boys. He would be a great addition to a breed experienced home with room for him to at least stroll around and check things out. Please email apassionforpaws@gmail.com

    Mia is a beautiful 2 year old female Akita. She was being fostered at a family members house since she was 9 months old because when we had to unexpectedly move into an apartment. We recently found that she was being neglected at her foster residence and have brought her to our apartment until a more suitable permanent home can be found. Due to restrictions at our complex and because we will not be able to move into a house with a yard for at least a year we simply cannot keep her. Mia is super sweet and loves any attention she can get. She is papered, fixed, and house broken. She has socialized well with a male Akita, but does not get along ... (Read More)with other females dogs or small animals. She has never been around young children and would do best in an adult only home or a home with respectful older children (i.e. ages 10 and up. Her new home would ideally have a fenced yard with owners that are breed experienced or at least familiar with the Akita temperament and personality. Mia is scared to go on walks and does not try to run away from home. She prefers to be on the back patio or inside with the family and will only venture out on a leash if there is more than one person going outside due to being abused when she went on 1:1 walks at her foster home.

    Speaker: Stays true to her name. An Akita mix who will greet owners with a friendly howl. Her tail is always wagging and by the first visit she's ready to be your companion. She is compact enough to lay at the foot of the bed and will roll over for you to pet her belly. Got a problem with cats on your property? If she sees them, once she's locked on, there are no distractions for her! Food is her passion, she gets very excited, but will wait to eat until you tell her to. (As an added bonus: She is also a good vacuum for any possible microscopic crumbs left to clean up by anyone) She has a white coat speckled in brown and black spots, her ... (Read More)head is almost fully black, with a white streak running down the midline of her head down to her nose. She is about 7 years old and around 60 lbs, but still loves to go on morning and evening walks! Her back end is a little sensitive, so be gentle if picking her up. I would not recommend laying on her backside, she will let you know she doesn't approve! However, her size makes her a great playmate for puppies! (Less)

    Meet Z aka Zombie she's crate trained and adventurous, if you're looking for a hiking/running/camping buddy Z is your pup, she's completely bonded with the outdoors!! This approx 12 month old puppy is a survivor and is extremely high energy! She was found in the California City desert the first week of November. Z was in horrible condition and her outlook wasn't good, she had ringworm in between her eyes and on her nose, was in pain, her skin was falling off in chunks and she smelled like death. This puppy looked like an extra from The Walking Dead. Once her stray hold period was up at the California City Animal Shelter we took her in and ... (Read More)rushed her to our wonderful vet. Dr. Thurman's staff determined that this SWEET, amazingly loving puppy had been tortured. She was partially skinned, scalped and then doused in some kind of chemical that literally was eating away at her skin. Z had a terrible staph infection as a result of being dumped in the desert without medical care. After months of TLC Zombie is ready for her forever family.She has no lingering effects from the torture aside from some areas that are missing hair on the plus side sun burns are not likely since she is so fluffy elsewhere her bald patches are hidden. As a bonus we've actually done a DNA test on Zombie and it was determined that this gal is a Akita, Cairn terrier, Chow Chow, Toy Fox Terrier, Staffy mix! She will be approx 30- 38 lbs when she is done filling out, her current weight is 28lbs. Z gets along well with submissive, calm easy going dogs, and has interacted with dogs of all sizes, horses, cats and children. She takes correction well and has an EXCELLENT recall. More photos can be sent upon request. Z's ideal home would be one that is active, as she has energy to spare, serious inquires only. **Pets will not be shipped nor transported to adopter. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a first come first serve basis. Meet and Greets are scheduled when an application has been approved.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in California
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in California 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.
