Animal ID: 1947Baxter (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Volunteer update 11/20: Baxter has been at the shelter since 11/3. That's a long time for a dog to stay at the shelter. He needs rescue or adoption NOW! We've had Baxter out of his kennel several times with other dogs. He always behaves nicely around other dogs on leash and no aggression has been noted. When in his kennel he does act out sometimes when other dogs are led past his kennel. You can see from the condition of his ears from fly bites that he has had a very rough life and received little to no care. Baxter would love to have another chance at life and have the opportunity to know what it is like to be loved and cared for. He needs ... (Read More)pledges to help encourage a rescue group to save him. Please share him for rescue or adoption NOW!! Washington, NC: Baxter came into the shelter on 11/3 as a stray from the River Road area of Washington. He is an approx. 4 year old Akita/shepherd mixed fellow. Baxter seems friendly and well-behaved. He has some significant injury to his ears from fly bites. Let's find him a wonderful loving new home! Available for adoption on 11/8. For more info email the shelter staff at animal.control@co.beaufort.nc.us. Always refer to the petango or ID number! Adoption fee is $75 which includes spay/neuter, p/d shot, bordetella, microchip and deworming. Approved 501c3 Rescues can pull for $20 which includes p/d shot, bordetella, microchip and deworm. Some volunteer assistance for 501c3 rescues. Please refer to ID number when calling or emailing shelter. ***PLEASE NOTE*** We will update as soon as updates are available. This shelter has a very small but very busy staff, so please DO NOT CALL for updates on dogs. If their Petango link is active, then they are still in the facility. While we welcome interest from all rescue groups, the shelter staff and volunteers CANNOT arrange long-distance transports or boarding. No credit card adoptions or rescues. Must be cash or check.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-30-00056Hank (male)

Akita    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. Hank is a good boy with his people, very loyal typical of his breed. He had basic obedience training at 3-4 months old, and socialization. He recently showed aggression and we are unfortunately unable to keep Hank with us due to cats and small dog in household. Hank loves to run and has a lot of acreage for this on private property away from any traffic. Hank has recently been neutered. This should minimize his aggression. To have him completely safe and other small animals protected, Hank probably should be fenced.

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Howdy! My name is Hope and I'm a 4 year old 45 pound German Shepherd/Akita mix gal. I was found in an abandoned rental house - very malnourished. But look at me now!! I have the silkiest of coats, my foster mama says I feel like a cozy blanket. I am very smart and respond to direction and listen very well. I have to brag on myself and tell you that I overhear my foster mama telling others that I am the smartest dog she has ever fostered! Slow introduction to other dogs is a must, but once introduced I get along as long as I am supervised. I am a bit alpha so would like to be bff's with a more submissive dog friend. I would prefer to be ... (Read More)the only dog in the house. And I will provide you with so much loyalty and love!! I love to go hiking and rides in the cars! I am what some refer to as a social butterfly, I've never met a stranger. I really enjoy meeting all people and kids and just snuggle into them!! I am a great house dog and pretty much just lay on the floor or dog bed. Yes, I have some pre-mature graying of the muzzle but don't let that fool you! I am a happy youthful 4 year old. I love to fetch balls in the yard, love to chomp up a stuffed toy, and will run and play like a pup in the yard!!! I walk great on a leash if I do say so myself. I am VERY sweet and really enjoy being rubbed on my ears. I also love to be near my people just hanging out and getting rubs. I've been spayed and am up to date with vaccinations. I was slight heartworm positive when coming to UDR however I have just finished my 2nd heartworm injection treatment. I am healthy and happy and expect to live a wonderful normal life. My adoption fee is $150 and I am spayed, microchipped and up to date on my boosters. I'll do best in a home with children over the age of 6 years old - I'm great with older kids but I'm not used to the activity levels of young/small people. If this pet interests you or you have any questions about this dog, please fill out an online application at udranch.com/adoption-application/ and we will be happy to answer any questions and arrange a visit!

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.

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.
