KONO

 

Kono is a big beautiful boy with soulful expressive eyes, a gentle nature and is 100% lover.  He gets his gorgeous exotic appearance from a combination of Akita, Siberian Husky and German Shepherd.

He may have been someone’s backyard dog who didn’t get the chance to explore and experience life.  But that’s all changed now and we’re helping him make up for lost time.

It’s incredibly rewarding to see his growth and his expression when that light bulb moment occurs and he realizes he’s mastered something new!  We take for granted simple things dogs should do, like ride in the car, take a bath, meet new people, get brushed and groomed and walk on a leash.  Kono has overcome many of his insecurities and trusted us enough to follow our lead.  He now loves to go for car rides, has gotten a bath, been groomed, has great leash manners and has met many new people and other dogs.  And we’ve only just begun!

He is resilient, open and willing.  We still have some work to do but he’s making remarkable progress.  He gets rewarded with treats and we get rewarded with kisses! 

Kono will need a guardian who will continue to introduce him to new situations in a gradual, process.  Patience and knowing when to proceed and when to pull back, will be rewarded with Kono’s love and loyalty.  Kono will benefit from someone who’s lifestyle finds him/her at home most of the time initially. 

 

We think he may do well with a social, confident, female canine companion who can show him the ropes.

We think he’s between 4-5 years old.  He seems to know sit, lie down and shake paw.  Someone spent some time with him.

This sweet boy is waiting for his forever home.

RUFUS

 

Are you hiring? 

Rufus is currently unemployed and missing his job.

 

He is a busy boy that needs a purpose in life, a job, something to keep him engaged and active.  He has places to go and people to see!

 

After we pulled Rufus from the shelter, he spent his first couple months at a boarding facility in the Central Valley rehabbing before coming to us.  While in boarding Rufus quickly became a staff favorite, loved by all the volunteers.  He is eager to be gainfully employed once again.

 

Rufus is an eager participant in any activity you might embark on.  Occasionally, he can be a little hesitant initially if you're introducing him to something new, however he's got the makings to be a great adventurer.  With encouragement and positive reinforcement, it doesn't take long before he's all in.

 

He does have some herding breed in him so he’s fast on his feet and laser focused.  He definitely needs a goal to attain and would excel at anything requiring speed, alertness and drive.  He’s got so much untapped potential, and being kenneled is not the environment for him.  He needs to be challenged mentally and physically to maximize his natural abilities.

 

If you are an active individual who has a love for sharing physical activity with your canine companion, Rufus may be the one for you.  This is when he’s at his happiest! 

 

When he’s dialed back and calm, he will lean into you for snuggles and love. 

 

Though Rufus goes on weekly pack walks with all of our other Akitas, he will be best as an only dog and definitely no cats.

 

His age is estimated at 3-4 years old.

ALANA

Alana is spontaneous, passionate and uninhibited.  And yet simultaneously she can be insecure and uncertain…in other words Alana is a typical Akita puppy!

 

Like all Akita pups at this age, she possesses that Yin/Yang balance of confidence and apprehension. 

Perhaps not even a year old yet, she is still figuring out the rules (and learning how to break every one of them!).

 

Alana is a gorgeous sable girl in a petite package with an amazing personality that’s larger than life.  She is a girl on the move!  She loves to experience everything new, sometimes boldly and sometimes with caution. One thing is for sure, with her nose pointed toward the wind the scent of adventure lures her to whatever lies ahead.

 

When she’s relaxed and calm, she is not shy about seeking affection, body rubs and soft eye contact.  She is impossible to resist and will steal your heart.

 

Alana is a very smart girl and will need a guardian who is smarter than she is.  In other words, only experienced Akita people need apply.

 

She participates in our regular pack walks with our other rescues and is polite and social, however she is competitive with other dogs, so best as an only dog and no cats in her future home.

KOBI

Kobi and his companion Bella were found exploring the neighborhood after their fencing fell down.
When Animal Control contacted their owner, they stated they couldn’t afford to pay the fees to get them out of the shelter, so they abandoned them there.

Bella had healing wounds around her neck, most likely from being chained or tethered. Both were underweight and in rough shape though Kobi seems to have fared better physically.  Bella healed nicely and has since been placed in her forever home.

Despite the neglect they endured, both of them are overflowing with love and affection, which they seemed to have been deprived of.

Kobi is just a youngster at approx 1 year old with a whole lot of growing to do! He’s a already a big, strong boy with an unbridled sense of adventure.
He fires on all cylinders and is eager to get out and see the world. We can’t blame him for his enthusiasm, if he’s been isolated in a yard his whole life.

He could be mixed with German Shepherd or a combination of other breeds, but nonetheless he’s a friendly, outgoing, lover. He enjoys meeting new people and doesn’t know the meaning of “aloof”! To the contrary, he can be a bit overzealous when greeting people so will need to learn proper etiquette!

Kobi will be enrolled in a basic obedience and manners class before he’s available, so he can be the best he can be! His new owner will need to continue implementing his training and socialization as part of his daily routine as he matures and grows.

His ideal guardian is someone who is active and maybe even likes to run and hike. You should be an experienced large breed individual who is familiar with setting boundaries and maintaining rules.

Kobi will require a home with a large fenced yard. No apartments or townhouses will be considered.

No children in his future home as he is much too big and energetic for little humans.

It might be the mix in him, as Kobi is not a typical Akita and seems to be quite social with many other well mannered dogs his size. He may do well with an appropriately matched female of equal activity level.

No cats!
