Andy came to us after his owner lost his home. Per his owner, Andy lived with a female chow and cats. Our buddy here has pretty much lost everything; his home, his family and his pack that he lived with, so as you can imagine he is pretty much devastated. Since coming to us Andy had started to rebound. Kennel life is something he was truly unfamiliar with and did struggle with the first 2 weeks, but since then he has started to heal. We feel Andy would need to go to a home with either cats or a female buddy after a meet and greet. Andy walks well on leash, loves playing with toys,and knows the sit command. Once he opens up and can be a silly character! Andy loves to run so if you do have a nice big securely fenced in back yard he would do his special zooms for you once he settles in.Interested in this sweet soul? Please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and put in an online adoption application for Andy! View full description »
Carson is a three year old neutered male Akita who came into rescue after his owner became ill and could not care for him any longer. Carson is gorgeous, big, bouncy, and is in beautiful condition. When first meeting this big guy he can be very aloof at first, focusing on those that care for him. Carson will need time to bond. We feel an adult only home as a single pet would be best for Carson. He is very big and has a rough play style so children would be knocked down by this big guy. Carson is very good on leash and minds well on car rides. Interested in Carson? Please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and fill out an online application! View full description »
Meet Niki a young female akita that has come into rescue after her owner left her at a NYC shelter . Reason was she was no longer wanted. Niki has been a very good girl here with us. We provide structure and routine to all of the orphans and Niki thrives on it. This akita would do best with a active owner, or a owner with a large fenced in yard as she is young and has lots of energy to burn. Niki in the past has lived in a home with children ages 12 and up. She also lived with another dog however we feel she should be placed in a home where she can have all the love and attention to herself. Niki can be territorial behind a barrier. We feel Niki should go to a adult only home with breed experienced adults .Interested ? please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and put in an online application. Nikita has a lot of potential in the right hands! View full description »

Beautiful Sheldon comes to us from rural TN where he was found living in a abandon shack injured from what appeared to be multiple animal bites. A concerned citizen was able to trap Sheldon and got him to a local vet for care. That is where we stepped in and agreed to take Sheldon into our organization in NJ. He is a big, goofy boy who loves to play, he is very inquisitive and silly. Sheldon can be unsure of new situations at times so he will need a home with a confident owner who can make him feel safe in new situations.Are you interested in Sheldon?

Robby came to us as a stray from the city of Philadelphia. It sadly appears that Robby has had a bit of a hard life due to some scaring on his face and ears in which we suspect came from living in filthy conditions . Since coming to us at BEAR Robby has finally started to put on some much needed weight. So far Robby has been easy to handle and enjoys being pet and given attention. Robby loves to give kisses once he knows you and would love a home where he can go for daily walks and be given his favorite treats. We have discovered Robby knows some basic commands also. This is a very kind and gentle boy who surely deserves a chance .....Interested in adopting this Akita? Please go to our website under available Akitas and fill out an online adoption application.
