Rescue Me ID: 13-11-13-00390Maddux (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Seizures,

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Our dog Maddux is 10 years old. He is an Akita Mix and weighs about 60lbs. He has infrequent seizures (about once every 2-3 months) and are mostly controlled by controlling his anxiety level. We have a 2.5 year old son, and since his birth Maddux's anxiety level has really gone up. We also have another baby due in January. Maddux likes my son, and had actually grown to like him more recently, but he bit him on the back of the head a few days ago seemingly out of nowhere. My son was not injured but it could have been much worse. We have worked very hard to acclimate Maddux and our son over the years, we do not ... (Read More)leave them alone, His bed is his 'private space', we have taught our son gentle hands, etc. We feel that he needs to be in a home with no small children as he ages even more. We are not going to take him to a shelter and will love him always and care for him until when/if there is not a wonderful, kind person/family to take him and give him long walks and keep him relatively stress-free. He is a typical Akita-a bit of a loner, he is not overly cuddly but very much wants the company of people over other animals. He will love you forever if you walk him every day and let him sleep on your couch. He loves to lay in the sun on the porch and backyard but only if the back door is open so that he knows he can come inside whenever he wants! As soon as the door closes he wants to come back inside right away due to his anxiety:) He is extremely smart and loves to be active. He likes his dog brother and dog sister but was basically raised with them and is not friendly with other dogs. He can be wary of strangers and needs time to get to know others. He is very protective of his loved ones. He needs a family well-versed in this breed, who can commit to lots of exercise and who doesn't leave him home alone for long periods of time. He needs someone who is firm and not a pushover, but a previous Akita owner knows this! As mentioned before-this is a family dog and we love him very much and would like to keep him forever but we also understand that he is not happy and his health depends on him living a happy, stress-free life. We have an appointment with his vet soon to discuss anxiety medication in hopes that this will help him adjust. If it does not, we would have to find someone to give him a fantastic happy life outside of our home. (Less)

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

    The Akita originates from the mountainous regions of northern Japan, The Akita dates back centuries and its origin is an island called Honshu in the Akita region of Japan. Akitas can pull sleds and hunt in deep snow. Akitas symbolize health and small figurines of the dog are sent to people in the hospital in Japan. Helen Keller owned the first U.S. Akita.
