    Noah is just a baby! Noah was rescued from the recent flooding in Houston. During the rain he was pulled from flooded streets but his rescuer already had three dogs in an apartment and needs help finding him the perfect home. This is Noah's story from his rescuer: On 4-16-16 I spotted this precious black puppy with a tightly curled tail, gorgeous brown eyes and half floppy ears on the curb across the street from my house all alone. I was headed to an event so I couldn't grab him then, but I planned to if he was still there when I got home. Sadly he was gone. I didn't see him for three more days during which time Houston had torrential ... (Read More)rains and severe flooding. After the storms had passed I was relieved to see that he had survived and was sitting out in the middle of the street again, all alone. I tried to call him to me and when I approached he ran. The next day I went out with a bag of treats and that definitely sparked his interest. He took several from me but wouldn't get close enough for me to grab him. I could see that he was very itchy so I tossed some diatomaceous earth powder into his coat to start killing any possible fleas or mites. Finally on 4-23-16 I had built enough trust to grab Noah and pick him up. I took him to my house and he had clearly never been indoors before. When frightened by new things, he recovers within seconds and is back to his happy self. I called several vets to see if anyone could see him as it was obvious that he had worms. I found a vet and had him examined. The vet estimated his age as 4 months old. He was found to have hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. Thankfully he came back negative for mange! He was treated with Drontal Plus. Once I knew he was not contagious I took him back home, gave him a bath and introduced him to my three large dogs. Within minutes they were all playing in the backyard. He is very social with other dogs! He also learned to sit within minutes and is very bright and eager to please. I just want him to feel all the love he has been missing in his short life so far. He deserves to know the good life after fending for himself for so long. Noah is a just a baby, and has found himself in a rescue at such a young age. How is this fair? Let's bust this boy out of here and get him in a forever home! Lone Star Akita Rescue has stepped up in helping this guy get some exposure and find the perfect home. For this gem of a puppy to be in your home... you just have to ask for an application, please email lonestarakitarescue@aol.com TODAY! (Less)

    I don't know what happened! How could this happen. I've always been a good boy. Of course there was some occasional puppy antics but I outgrew all that stuff and I've been a good boy ever since. I thought everything was wonderful. I heard things about dogs that didn't have their own families and had to rescue one but I thought that was just on tv. I thought that would never be me! I can't believe this happened. I'm still in shock! I thought they loved me. I sure LOVED THEM! I lived with them in their home. We did things together. What did I do? If someone knows and can tell me, please please tell me. I will never ever ever do it again. I ... (Read More)promise. I loved my life and I miss it so much. I just want everything to go back to the way it was. Someone please help me! I will be forever in your debt. I need a way out of here. I'm not cut out for this life in boarding. I'm used to cushy couches and people to hug when they come home from work. I don't know what to do. Someone please help me! Poor Micah's family called LSAR on a Monday and said they 'have until Friday to relocate and cannot take Micah'. He's about 5 and has been fully vetted by LSAR. He's a sweet family pet now, just needs the family! For an adoption application email lonestarakitarescue@aol.com. (Less)

    Fostering in Houston, Texas Not Cat Friendly A long while back, While most of you slept, LSAR had a trapper out in Katy, Texas to catch a hurt Akita boy, now named Eliot! At 3am trapper volunteer, Eliot Smith snuck up on Akita Eliot, coming down wind so he wouldn't give off a scent that would awaken the precious pooch. Human Eliot was able to get this boy for us and hold on to him through the night to get him to our foster. We got all hands on deck to help get this baby cleaned up, cheered up, well, and start life over! Upper left hand corner picture is of Eliot running wild in Katy, TX. The next three pictures are of him being ... (Read More)trapped... and not to his liking, the bottom picture is of Eliot decompressing in foster home. But now... a long while later, he is doing so much better- he is now liking his foster family, including children and looks super healthy! Adoption Application?

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-24-00268ROCKY (male)

Akita    Age: Young 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 

    Please excuse the pink and purple leashes and collars, he's all boy, rescuers use whatever is handy in a pinch! Rocky was dumped at the Mesquite, TX animal shelter, a high kill shelter, and LSAR saved him two hours before what would have been the end for Rocky! Rocky was dumped by his very own BREEDER - the very person who was supposed to protect Rocky and be his advocate for life! His owner claimed he was aggressive so he was labeled as such, which he is NOT, and locked away from people in a quarantine room, often muzzled, with NO CHANCE to meet a possible adopter! LSAR found out about this sad kid and stepped in fast to save him with ... (Read More)the help of transport volunteer Cindy Weyandt. What we found when we got to Rocky, not knowing what to expect, was a terrified lonely young man in desperate need of help! He was simply too scared to even sniff his treats or acknowledge his one and only visitor! He was muzzled so that a collar could be put on him to lead him to his freedom. We quickly realized this guy had NO NEED for a muzzle and it was removed - he was simply terrified! He made it halfway down the hall to freedom and he completely shut down, maybe for fear he was being taken to the room where unspeakable things happen. But this was not the case - we were saving him. For over an hour, he refused to stand or budge at all. Volunteer Cindy laid on the floor with him, holding his face, stroking him and telling him that everything would be ok, LSAR was committed to finding his happily ever after. Rocky, still in despair, unwilling to move, had given up the will to go on. But we believed there was that Akita spirit somewhere deep inside this poor soul! Three shelter staff/volunteers decided to make a makeshift gurney for Rocky out of towels and helped Cindy carry him out of the shelter and gently place him in his rescue ride. Poor Rocky was shaking uncontrollably. By now it was obvious, poor Rocky had lived his entire life without socialization and every single thing that had happened to him in the last 24 hours was a completely new experience without the support of his family who was supposed to be there for him but instead dumped him to die alone! Once the vehicle was moving for 30 minutes, Rocky's shaking lessened and he was growing more comfortable and less terrified. By the time Cindy arrived to drop Rocky off, he was a little more Akita like in his behavior. LSAR is currently getting Rocky full vetted. Please considering opening your heart and maybe even your home to Rocky! Thank you! For an application email lonestarakitarescue@aol.com Rocky is located in Arlington, TX. (Less)

    Hi! My name is Shadow and I am looking for a new family because my human dumped me and three of my friends at the shelter. I was really sad at first but then I was told rescue was going to save all of us and give us new homes. I did have 3 friends at rescue but the only ones left are me and Bear. The rescue thinks my human was a breeder because we were all in tact and Princess 3 was in heat at the time but I'm not sure what any of that means! All I know is I really want a family. I've heard when you rescue a new human that is the best experience ever and they treat you like family! I can't wait! I don't mind if I stay with one of my ...

    Breaker, Breaker, this is Trucker coming in loud and clear from LSAR. Trucker's story starts off at a Pilot gas station, near Monroe, Louisiana, where he was seen being dumped. Since Trucker is one chill dude he decided to stick around for a bit. The attendant at the store said Trucker was very sweet and just laid by the door so he could greet customers!

Akita    Age: Young Adult

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

    Desoto has a childlike soul who is constantly full of fun and laughter. Around 1.5 years old he is silly, goofy, entertaining and longs to be loved and comforted. He would love nothing more than someone to pet him so he may lie down and roll over on their feet. It's his way of telling you his heart is melting, and that he is submitting to your love. He would love to find that special someone to take him playing at the beach, for runs in the park, or enjoy playtime at a doggy park on a weekly basis for entertainment and fun. He is an active boy, so he would prefer to have someone to match his energy. He is highly intelligent and can open ... (Read More)his foster family's oven and the back door! Desoto walks on a gentle leader and this really helps him keep focus when you want something from him. He is crate trained, and will do basically anything for food or treats. Desoto is being fostered in Houston, Texas. We have more photos, just ask! For an Adoption Applications email LoneStarAkitaRescue@aol.com (Less)

    Fostering in Illinois Cruz hails from Chicago, Illinois where he was found roaming around in negative temperatures with a bum knee - GRADE FOUR LUXATING PATELLAS to be exact, and covered in fleas (yes, even in the snow) that were so bad he has dermatitis infections from them. Lone Star Akita Rescue has fully vetted Cruz and he is ready for a permanent home now. He is still having some therapy for his knee but he is doing quite well. He gets along with other dogs and loves his people. He would do best with kids over 15. He would do best in a home without cats since he has a high prey drive.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    UPDATE: APRIL 2016 Princess is now in great health, she is has gained weight, is most dog friendly and a super people lover! She is still being treated for heartworm but the meds are doing great! --------------------------------------- Princess nearly lost her life because she was afraid. The staff at Harris County thinks she's 1 year old. Why do they think and not know? Because her owner did not tell them anything about her. They did not tell the staff why she whimpers in pain, why she did not want them to touch or examine her. They did not explain why she is so thin that her bones stick out. They just left, her because they didn't have ... (Read More)time for her anymore. Princess has been shared on the web for days - pleas have gone out 'Please help Princess' - but the shelter staff did not have the best things to say about her - they did not understand that she fought them because she was in pain - so much pain that she simply whimpered all the time and could not bear a caring touch. They did not know that her supposed aggression was pain and fear - but thanks to Lone Star Akita Rescue now they do. LSAR sent a caring patient Akita savvy volunteer in to meet this petite girl. What they found surprised everyone - once she was out of the run she was full of kisses...even for another nosy dog who came right up to her face. But she hurts, it was easy to see. She arches her back a bit from pain and won't hold her tail up. Adoption Applications can be requested through LoneStarAkitaRescue@aol.com Princess is in boarding in Alvaredo, TX (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Leah. I am a really good girl. I was so special, I got to be a mom! I used to be really depressed because when Animal Control picked me up, I didn't get my babies. I have no idea what happened to them. Then I got even more scared because I could smell the bad room at jail. Everyone talks about what happens in there - how so many dogs and cats go in and none come back out. We all tried to show off every time people walked by so that they would pick up and we wouldn't end up in the bad room. Then all of a sudden, they came to get me and no people had walked by looking for dogs and I was so scared it was my time in the bad room. ... (Read More)BUT instead they took me back out front and said I had a rescue. I have no idea what that means.... so I went to another place and they took all my lady parts so I can't be a mom anymore. That really upset me but they say that's what you have to do in rescue to have a FUREVER family and that's what I want most of all. I am waiting in boarding now for that forever family but no one has come yet. I am so good, just ask this crazy boarding guy how good I am! He says I am one of the best behaved dogs here! I hope you find me soon. I can't wait to meet you! ~ Love Leah Leah has been rescued after ending up at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter after giving birth to some puppies. Sadly, mama Leah showed up alone at the shelter with no known where-abouts of her pups. Thanks to cross-posters, generous pledgers and with an assist from the Texas Sled Dog Rescue mama Leah has been rescued!! Leah has already been fully vetted by LSAR and it wouldn't hurt for her to have a foster family... she'll need someone liberal with the treats :) (Less)

    Hi everyone, my name is Hershey. I am being fostered in Houston, TX. My parents named me Hershey because when I was a puppy I looked like a little brown bear.

I weigh in at a generous 115 pounds, and I think I carry quite well, if I do say so myself! I have had humans describe me as full of life and energy. I love me some of those two legged pets I have right now called humans and the ones that look like humans but smaller... I think they are called children. However, I ...

Even though I enjoy the great outdoors, I am most definitely an inside dog and will stay gated up while you're not home. *Please note that I have a chicken allergy, so you will have to feed me a fish or lamb based diet. No biggie, there are lots of options now a days! If you adopt me, you can be darn tootin' that you will never be short on love and devotion ever again!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Princess and I am staying in a boarding facility in Alvaredo, TX until I find a home. I really don't like it here. The boarding guy is funny and seems to like me but I so want my own home and yard back without all of these dogs around. He even tells me I am perfect but no one has adopted me yet so I don't know if that's true. I had a family in Fort Worth but they didn't want me anymore. The put me on Craigslist. I don't know what that means but I have heard it is really bad and bad things happen to dogs given away on a Craigslist. My family ended up letting me go or dumping me, the rescue isn't sure so I found people all by myself ... (Read More)at an apartment complex where there were lots to pick from. I thought I did a good job and was so proud! It was raining outside and the lady let me sleep inside with her and her husband and baby. I was on my best behavior because I was sure I found a new home. The next morning she put me back outside when she went to work. My family did that too so I was used to it and waited and waited for her to come back so she could see how happy I was to see her and how good I was for waiting for her but she never returned. The lady across the complex saw me sitting in the rain and called rescue. The rescue asked her to get me to come inside and they would come get me. I wasn't sure, I wanted to stand my post waiting for my new mom but then she called my name so I figured I had gotten confused picking my new mom. The rescue told her my name so they could see if I was the girl on Craigslist - it was me! I ran to her and went inside and they came and got me and took me to boarding, I felt tricked! The next day it got worse, they took me to a vet and he kept poking me. They said they had to be sure I was ready for adoption and that once I got all my vaccines and chip a family would want me. So I did it all but I still have no family - can you help them find me please? I have been w kids and love all people, I am great in a crate and on a leash and love car rides but I prefer to keep my humans to myself and don't want to share with another dog. Please help me find my forever humans! Thank you! Love~Princess For Adoption Applications please email LoneStarAkitaRescue@aol.com (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    Kita is located in Alvaredo, TX, she is with Lone Star Akita Rescue. Poor Miss Kita has had one heck of a time but those days are over. Her story starts near Houston, TX where her owner said she had a female Akita with a hurt leg and was recently single with two sick kids and couldn't afford to take care of her dog. She said if LSAR did not pick her dog up by Friday, she was taking her to the shelter. LSAR rallied the troops and found a volunteer who was able to pick her up. Sadly, upon our arrival, our volunteer found the dog living in a brand new home with a 17 year old, whose mother was not home, that owned a brand new car that didn't ... (Read More)even have tags on it yet. We realized then, that Kita was just not a priority. The teenager lead our volunteer to the back yard where Kita was being kept, completely lame on her rear right leg. She was emaciated with no food or water bowls in sight. She did however, have scraps thrown on the ground; the uneaten dinner of the family from the night before. She was blowing coat but had not been brushed for some time. Our volunteer said 'I'm glad you got her out of there.' She is now in the hands of Lone Star Akita Rescue, who took care of her ACL surgery and vetting. She is a healthy, sweet and playful- she loves people. Kita is the most kissy faced of girls who grew up with children and loves car rides. For an adoption app..email...

I have never ever been in a home and lots of people have overlooked me so I am beginning to think it is not going to happen for me.

Maybe it's because I want all of my future human's attention but I've never had a chance to get ... (Read More)socialized because I have always lived in a boarding pen.

We were pretty happy together for about a year and then he said I had to go live somewhere else. He took me to a friend's house and moved out of the country. The friend dumped me in boarding and Lone Star Akita Rescue came back to get me. I was sad for a long time thinking he would come back but then when the rescue appeared I knew he was gone for good. Since that happened, I've been working on me trying to be a really good girl. I used to hate other dogs but I know lots of adopters have ... (Read More)them so I've been trying to do better, even if they are really annoying. I even get along w some dogs okay- if they are submissive we will get along. I hope everyone sees that I am a good girl and trying really hard so they give me a chance. I promise I'll be on my best behavior again if I can find another family. I love people! Thank you for sharing me and helping me find them. Respectfully ~ Clarissa Ask for an Adoption Application LoneStarAkitaRescue@aol.com (Less)

Animal ID: 15-11-18-00871Shima (female)

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Shima will be 7 in June, she is 3 years younger than my older female Akita and they've been in several terrible and dangerous fights; Shima suddenly became aggressive towards older female, likely b/c other female is aging. They can no longer live together- I was seriously injured during their fight in Nov 2015. She is very smart, sweet loving and trained. She needs to now be in a household where she can be the only animal. She is beautiful.

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My name is Herman, I am an Akita/mix, one of my ears is up and the other one flops, I am silly and goofy and don`t really have manners yet, but we are working on it. I love to lick everybody and get very excited. I am good with other dogs through the fence, but I am lacking social skills and with all the excitement I kinda get in trouble. If somebody could really teach me how to behave, I will be the best boy ever. I have some nasty heartworms, but I am on slow kill and those nasty things will be gone soon! I`d love to meet you soon

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-16-00525Pioneer Annie (female)

Akita Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Pioneer Annie is one of twenty seven dogs we picked up during a raid, protected by sheriff's deputies. Unlike the majority of these unfortunate dogs, Annie is healthy, friendly and a team player. We rehabbed and fixed her and now she's ready for a loving forever home. Oh my, is she EVER deserving of love! I described Annie as Hound-Blackmouth Cur as an educated guess. Most of the dogs involved had her similar conformation and size. **Pictured with little Rooky**

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Texas
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Texas 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, Akitas can pull sleds and hunt in deep snow. 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.
