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: Needs to be 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. Neutering Hank should minimize his aggression. To have him completely safe and other small animals protected, Hank probably should be fenced.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Can anyone please help. I know a family who recently lost their home. They currently do not have the means to take care of their dog so I'm working on their behalf to find someone who can love this cuddlebug and give him a forever home. His name is Jasper and he's an 8 year old Lab mix. He's very beautiful and has a great temperament and gets along well with other animals and people. Although he injured his hind leg a few years ago, he can still run, jump and play. He's just unable to walk for long distances or walk up a lot of stairs without it hurting him. He's just a great family dog that needs a home. He's also up to date on all his ... (Read More)shots. Thank you for any help someone can give this family. (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.
