Akita Mix    Age: 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 

    Hello there, my name is Max. I'm 8.5 years young and I have the classy manners to prove it. I'm looking for a new 'job' because I'm tired of 'working' with my drooling, shedding, wrestling, barking, dopey, unrefined 'coworkers'. Don't get me wrong, the humans that are on my staff here are great, and I'm going to miss them. It's the other canines in the house that have driven me to this decision! Bailey is a cool dog in my mind because he is kinda like me and likes his space. Dino however is the 'in your face' friendly kind of guy and I just don't care for that. I have tried to let him know in a doggy kind of way but he just doesn't seem ... (Read More)to get it and since I am the newcomer around here, I don't think it's fair for him to adjust how he lives to benefit me. I'm house trained, I'm quiet, I'm polite on the leash, I'm calm, and you can take me places without anything embarrassing happening. In fact, I absolutely adore car rides. We don't even have to get out anywhere. I just love to ride. While I love cats, I love them in the 'for breakfast' sense of the term, and that seems to make some people a little uncomfortable. I'm currently unemployed so I can't split the rent right now, but I'll make up for it by looking after the house and keeping you company when you're not at work. I can move any day because my current landlords have agreed to let me out of my lease as soon as I make other arrangements. If you'd like to get together for lunch or a glass of wine or a splash in the lake, please email my secretary at I look forward to meeting you! I am currently staying with another human friend here in the Raleigh area but you can get in touch with Robert if you would like to arrange a meeting. Also, the aforementioned adoption fee will be donated to the SPCA of Wake County as they are the ones responsible for getting me my current 'position' with Robert and Jack. That and the staff at the SPCA have been awesome in helping me during this transition. Check out my Twitter Page at: Check out my Facebook page at: (Less)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Adele! I am a Plott Hound mix who weighs about 60lbs. I am about 2 years old. I get very excited to meet new people! If I see you in public and you have not come over to pet me I will start whining until you do. When I get excited I pin my ears back as you can see in my pictures. I am working on not jumping up when I greet someone, but I know how to sit if you tell me to sit. I will also give you my paw, and lay down. I enjoy running around the fenced in back yard with other doggies. I am very playful with them all. I will play with any kind of toy you give me, but I love kongs! After I am done playing and greeting you I like ... (Read More)to lay on my bed and relax. I have a lot of energy when i'm playing, but I can also be very calm and quiet as well. I have good house manners, I do not get on the furniture unless I am invited. I have not attempted to chew anything that wasn't a toy. I love hugs, if you decide to bend down and give me a hug be prepared for me to lick your face! I do well when being crated at night, i don't even complain. I am also house trained. I am heart worm negative, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all of my shots. All you have to do it take me home. My adoption fee is $200. If I sound like the perfect fit for you please email my foster mom Megan at for more information. Or you can go ahead and fill out an application at . (Less)

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