Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Arthritis 

    This beautiful guy walked in to our lives about two weeks ago. We are serious animal lovers so we took him in as a stray and knowing he was a full blooded akita we expected to find his owners. We've searched and searched with no luck. We are just not in a position to keep him with all of our other pets. We took him to the vet and between us, we are guessing his age to be around nine. He is a mature boy. He is in otherwise good health but has some arthritis in his hind legs. Shot status is unknown. Because we fully expected to find his owners we held off getting them. Now that we haven't, we would be willing to do that prior to ... (Read More)rescue. We gather he was out a few weeks before he found us. He is neutered. He is extremely sweet and docile. Gets along well with our other dog. He likes our cats too, maybe a bit too much. He likes to follow them around and they don't think that's cool. So cat status is unknown. My hunch is that he is just curious and getting used to everything but it could be that he shouldn't be around them. Too early for us to tell. (Less)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Tiger is our big boy. He turned 8 in March and weighs in around 100 pounds. He mostly enjoys laying in the sunshine outside or on his big bed next to the windows. He is very patient with children (my son is now 3 but he has certainly put this to the test)and gets along well with other dogs. He isn't particularly talented with leashes and prefers fenced yard to walks anyway. His vaccines expire in June so I am having them updated next week for his new owner(s). He has been to the vet regularly and on heartworm/flea prevention his whole life. I have had him since he was a very little puppy and hate to give him up but we are moving for family ... (Read More)reasons and he cannot come to the home we will be living in. He hasn't had a lot of experience with cats so we do not know how he would do. If you are interested please contact me. We are happy to travel and let prospective homes meet him you can also email me at Thank you for reading about Tiger! (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.
