Rescue Me ID: 14-09-02-00357Buddy (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Buddy has the saddest story of all our animals. He was originally brought to our shelter over 2 years ago when his owner had to move and couldn't take him with her. He was an older gentleman, and although perfectly well behaved and house trained, he was overlooked for many months. Luckily he isn't a dog that gets stressed out in the kennels so we just kept loving him and looking for his new family too arrive any day. He was adopted to a great family at an adoption event we attended and we all celebrated his great luck. However, there was a small child in the home who was intimidated by his size and he had to come back to us. The second time ... (Read More)around he stayed even longer before finding a home. The same day a sweet lady came in and said, 'That's the perfect dog for me.' Again, we all celebrated Buddy's new home and a few tears were shed when we said goodbye. Sadly....Buddy returned to us again a few weeks ago. His mother does not have a fenced in yard and Buddy had taken to roaming off the property. He always came back home but she was afraid he would get hurt while roaming. So maybe he needs a fenced yard. Or maybe he just needs someone to walk him on a leash for exercise. Even though he is extremely healthy and active, given his age, he doesn't actually require a tremendous amount of free run. He gets along fine with other dogs, loves to ride in a vehicle and as mentioned before, is completely house trained. If you think you might have room in your heart and your home for this dignified older gentleman who has had a string of the worst luck, please give us a call. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-01-00183Wonder (female)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Wonder is a very sweet dog - 44lbs, so she must have a small breed mixed in with her. Her face looks like a German Shepherd, but her tail looks like Chow / Akita. She does not do well with other dogs at all, so I took her from the person who rescued her from a shelter (she had another dog). My travel schedule is such that I can't spend enough time with Wonder - and I can't have friends who have dogs watch her. I'm trying to avoid taking her to a shelter, but I just can't care for her anymore.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-20-00071Beau (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Beau is a super sweet dog, very affectionate and 'chill' in the house, and extremely good on a leash outside (no pulling!). He kissed my cat on first greeting and is happy to see visitors in the home as well as people and their dogs on his dog walks. He is attentive, but goes and lies down, too. A beautiful Akita/Boxer mix, he has the Akita trait of needing to be 'top dog,' so he will do best in a home where that's the case! He is a beautiful, loving animal, very healthy, gentle, enthusiastic, affectionate, 73 lbs., neutered, up-to-date on all shots, etc. Knows 'sit' and looks like Scooby Doo!

Akita Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We found Dragon a couple months ago. He is wonderful with us,(extremely loving to our children and other pets0 but very fearful of any people outside our family causing aggression towards any company. My husband and I are very active in the community and constantly have children over, therefore we cant keep him for fear of him injuring a child. Dragon needs someone who is very patient and probably without children. He would make an excellent guard dog.

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.

    The Akita originates from the mountainous regions of northern Japan, The Akita dates back centuries and its origin is an island called Honshu in the Akita region of Japan. 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.
