Rescue Me ID: 15-05-25-00725Burger (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Yes Burger is his real name. He turned one this February 28th. He is quite the character. He prefers to be with us humans and not other animals. Since he was neutered so young he does not hike. Many people are nervous about that.He is pad trained if he absolutely has to go. He prefers to stay right with you though in the home. He is very protective. He will bark and let you know someone is near by before they reach the door. He truly needs a yard to run and my best bet would be older people. I have three teenage boys that he is fine with. He knows simple commands sit, stay, down, paw, other paw and up. He is extremely vocal ... (Read More)and will get you to go outside as well. If you have sensitive ears, it will hurt his bark is high. Between preparing for my domestic situation to finally wrap up and now taking my landlord to court for not following housing codes and the worst second floor neighbor you could imagine this is not fair to him or my female Akitas. It really rots going through this. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-25-00708Azumi Cho & September (female)

Akita    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I have 2 female Akitas for adoption. They are sisters and I will not separate them. They are different from one another in a few ways. September is primarily white with brindle ears and a large brindle spot on her back. Some brindle spot came in as she got older. September also looks boney but is very strong and healthy. She loves toys, cow hooves, antlers and cuddling. If you don't pay attention she will lift her leg as though she is swatting at you. She was the puppy I was buying and I couldn't leave her sister. Azumi meaning in Japan safe home. She is the goofy goofy one. She is just about completely dark brindle. She is ... (Read More)fluffier. Whereas her sister is not at all fluffy. Azumi will take to the kennel at night by herself. She rather cuddle and lay beside her sister but September will prefer sleeping in bed cuddling. They both are stubborn but do know speak, sit, down and paw. They get absolutely too excited and when leashing them up will sometimes wet the floor. They are still puppies and it sucks I don't have a fenced in yard and neighbors upstairs who live to stock us. I've been battling a domestic situation and still awaiting the jury trial for the abuser. This is a huge part as to why I must rehome them so young. It makes me upset But between working, court and this slum lord for a land lord. I Just cannot do it. My kids who are 13,15 and 17 Don't act nearly responsible enough for me to give them the best. I want them to run and have the whole house and not lashed all the time outside. Please help me find an awesome home for them so they remain together as well. I have the monthly health plan through PetsMart's Bannfield. I believe it also includes them being spayed. I have pictures as well. (Less)

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