Akitas Available for Adoption

   (Scroll to bottom of page for Courtesy Listed dogs)

 

 

 

Hope's puppies, Roger, Laura, Alex, Athena (photos and bios below).

 

We rescued Hope and her 8 pups in December, after they’d been turned into the shelter after they’d been found at the city dump.

 

Somewhere before we picked up the pups from the shelter, they had been exposed to Parvo.  By some miracle 2 of the pups were unaffected, but like clockwork, the others began showing symptoms.  Stacy first and then Cinder.

 

We were devastated that after days in intensive care, Stacy waged a courageous battle but she lost her fight with the virus.  Cinder also succumbed to the illness and died in his foster mom’s arms on the way to the hospital. 

 

The remaining pups also fell to the virus and were kept alive in ICU with fluids, meds, feeding tubes and plasma transfusions.  There were countless sleepless nights, not knowing if they would make it through the nightIn the end and thousands of dollars later, the pups pulled through one by one and they returned to their foster home to complete their rehab.  That was on Christmas night, and what a Christmas it was knowing they had survived the worst of it.

 

They are now approximately 3-4 months old, and all doing well now growing and getting stronger by the day!  Each of them have their own distinct personalities and they are curious and eager to start experiencing life!  They have some catching up to do and can’t wait to get started!   Hope, the pups’ mom is an Akita mix, even though the pups look like purebred Akitas.  Hope is exceptionally trusting and affectionate and all the pups received her loving genes.

 

After all they’ve been through, we want to be sure we place them in their forever homes, that best suit their personalities and requirements as growing Akita puppies.

 

 

*We are seeking homes with Akita experience and no small children.

*A flexible schedule or the ability to work from home is a must, as these pups cannot be left alone for hours at a time    without care and supervision.

*Our adoption process requires an application, phone interview and a home visit.

ALEX

She adds spice to any party and is the hostess with the mostess.   She is very social, vocal and exuberant.  She uses her whole body to wag and welcome visitors.  She is smart, strong willed and enjoys life on her terms.  Alex is courageous and not shy about letting everyone know!  She is the instigator who enjoys a game of wrestle mania with her siblings.  She will need somebody who will be charmed by her but love her and help her with guidance and leadership to be the best dog that she can be.  Probably best as the only dog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAURA- PENDING ADOPTION!

She is a sweet, smart, reserved girl…that is until she flashes that unmistakable glint in her eye and then all bets are off and it’s mischievous with a capital M!  At 7 weeks old, while her siblings all slept peacefully she sat silently and dutifully keeping watch over the litter.  She is not the bodacious alpha type, but rather the confident voice of reason.  And when she talks, you listen!  She offers lots of soft eye contact letting you know she’s watchful of your every move.  She is not rattled by much and is an avid adventure seeker who loves the wild outdoors, where she can explore and conquer!

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ROGER- ADOPTED!

Healthy vivacious boy who enjoys meeting new people.  He likes to climb your legs for the opportunity to be in your lap. Great appetite and enjoys his freedom to wander the backyard patio that's fenced in just for him.  He loves to explore and take in the fresh air!  He watches everything going on and will vocalize to let you know when it's time for play or time to eat!  He is the biggest one in the litter but one of the softest tempered sweethearts. 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ATHENA

Is spunky and excited to meet new people.  She will lie on her back as an open invitation to rub her belly and paws.  She also enjoys to snuggle, give kisses and especially likes when you sing to her!  She's curious and likes to explore, but can also be a quiet, thoughtful soul.  This sweet girl would prefer to have company and we would like to place her with an appropriately matched male companion if possible.

RIKKI

UPDATE 1/30/19

Rikki, our Prince Charming is a worthy suitor who is at the ready to rescue his damsel in distress.

 

He would love nothing more than for someone to rescue his heart as well!  He’s been waiting for that special someone for almost a year.

 

Rikki is approximately 3 years old.  He’s an exuberant boy with a larger than life persona.  He is the kind of Akita who needs a purpose in life.  He looks forward to our walks with our other rescues when he is happiest and feels it’s his job to lead the pack.  He is extremely devoted to his pack of humans and canines and if one should fall behind, he refuses to continue.  Instead he dutifully waits until the pack is together before he proceeds.

 

Rikki is a quick study and has mastered almost all of his obedience skills.  He still gets excited and sometimes forgets how big and strong he is.  He needs someone strong and capable of handling and directing his energy into having that job he enjoys so much.

 

He is loyal and devoted.  All he wants in return is love, a purpose in life and someone as devoted to him as he will be to you.

Could he be your Prince Charming?

 

If you're interested in Rikki you can find our application on the link below in addition to details about our adoption process.

Previous post:

Rikki is an XL Akita with a larger than life personality! He loves belly rubs and lots of play time! His personality is boisterous, playful and energetic, sprinkled with affection and love.

Rikki will need structure in his home, paired with ample exercise, play time, long walks and a dedicated training routine.

He will require someone who is strong and active and can guide him with leadership and consistency. An Akita savvy home is a prerequisite to adopt Rikki.

Rikki knows some basic commands, but pulls hard on leash. We are working on his leash manners. He was quite shy and unsure of his surroundings when he arrived. He has made great progress during our weekly pack walks and outings to local outdoor malls and shopping areas.

His new guardian will need to continue acclimating him and socializing him to new situations and people, as he continues to learn about the world around him. So far he is proving he is ready, willing and able to achieve greater success!

Rikki does not appreciate cats or small dogs, and should be the only dog in the household. We estimate his age to be between 3-5 years old.

Please note, an approved adoption application is required, before a meeting can be arranged between a prospective adopter and our dogs.

KOTI

Koti is a darling young boy, who is a total love. But you might not see it right away, as it appears as if he was mistreated in his former life. He will need someone who will go slow and be patient until he gains your trust.

Once he does, he will show you his alter ego which is his puppy from within! He is all about play, car rides and zoomies in the yard.

His favorite pass time is to play a game of chase with the squirrels in the yard. He loves to lay on the patio and enjoy the fresh air.

Koti is crate trained and house trained. He will not be appropriate with cats. He enjoys the pack walks with our other rescues, and gains comfort and confidence. So he may do well with an easy going female companion.

Contact us for more information about Koti.  info@namasteakitarescue.com

Please note, an adoption application, phone interview and home visit are required before a meeting with a dog can be arranged.
