Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hannah is a 2 year old border collie/possibly Akita mix. She weighs about 55 pounds. She is submissive and timid, but will stick by you once she gets to know you. She is young and active and needs everything such as house training, obedience training, and socialization. She is great with dogs of all sizes. She loves her 'cave'. Hannah must have a fenced yard. No kids under 12 years of age. No cats, but another dog would be helpful. She is highly unsocialized to the point of being feral. You would be taking on a long-term project. Note from her foster mom: She is a very sweet girl who likes to be close to her family. She came into ... (Read More)rescue 18 months ago%A0as an older puppy very%A0unsocialized and almost feral. She will take a few weeks before she will let you come close to her. She would be considered a flight risk at this point until she bonds with you. She is not really leash trained as she has much too much anxiety being connected full time to a human. She spins and darts and tries to chew her way off the leash. She darts between your legs if she is comfortable with you. She has come a long way! She is doing great with the volunteers, loves to be loved on and stroked. She loves to play chase and is a fairly active girl. She is happiest outside in the fenced yard or loose in the house. Although she is crated trained, she prefers her freedom. She comes when I call her and wants to be%A0still by my side while I am on the computer. I would still not call her%A0'house trained'. She has a border collie prey drive so%A0I am not sure how she would do with a cat.%A0I do not know how she would do with children as she has not been around children. She's fine with dogs her size but she might play a little too rough for small dogs.%A0 Here are some articles that might be helpful when considering%A0Hannah. https://www.xojane.com/it-happened-to-me/adopting-a-feral-dog https://bestfriends.org/resources/feral-dogs-and-shy-dogs-how-help-them Adoption contract and fee applies.

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