Bo is an adult male Akita who has come into rescue after his family left him at a NYC Animal Shelter. Bo is a pleasant boy who meets you with a lick on the hand and a tail wag. Polite, but reserved, he will need sometime to warm up. Soft words, and kindness work best for Bo. On leash Bo is strong at first, once he does his business he will relax. We have gone ahead and dog tested Bo with one of our neutered rescue females named Josie and he is wonderful with her! He is also wonderful with our own resident female. Both testings were done with large dogs. Yes, we were brave and also cat tested Bo. He was curious, however did not chase . Its possible with some work he can be acclimated. Bo is immaculate in his kennel, knows sit, and shake. He needs a home with breed experience with children 14 and up. Bo loves his walks, toys, and once you allow him to bond you will have a great friend for life.Are you interested in this big guy?

Wyatt is a 7-8 month old male Akita pup that has come to us from TN. Wyatt is currently in a foster home where he will receive some medical care for a pretty awful skin infection. Once that is cleared up he will be neutered and ready for a new home. This is a young male Akita that will need to be socialized, and trained to blossom into a wonderful adult. You must have the time, experience and patience to put into Wyatt. This Akita would do best in a active home. He would make a great companion in a home that likes to hike, take long walks, and enjoys the outdoors.If you feel your home is committed and can give Wyatt what he needs, please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and fill out an online adoption application.

Meet smiling Josie, a beautiful 20 month old Akita. Josie originally came to us from the commercial breeding industry in MO. At a young age, Josie has already had her fair share of puppies, however this has all changed because now Josie is spayed and is in rescue looking for her forever home. Josie never meets a stranger; she is friendly, submissive, and gentle. She wants so much to play and will need to learn how. It is best Josie go to a home with a large confident male dog who can make her feel safe. Josie is ok on leash, but could use a little work as she can sometimes walk in a circle and we are working on this. She loves to run in the yard and is learning how to be a dog and play with toys.Are you interested in adopting Josie?

Meet Katy, an 11 month old Akita that has come to us from a commercial breeding kennel in MO. Katy is learning what its like to be a dog at BEAR. In the past she was only used to produce puppies and turn a profit for her owner. When we when received Katy, we noticed she came to us with a broken toe that was left to healed up on its own in a twisted position. This doesn't stop her from running and walking. Katy loves to run the yard and is learning how to play with her toys. On leash she can pull some, but we will work on this. We feel Katy can live with the right male dog so a meet and greet would be needed. Would you like to help Katy and teach her how to be a much loved member of your family?Are you interested in adopting this Akita?

This big guy (115 pounds) loves to play! Mel was left at a NJ shelter after his owner was moving. Mel will need a breed experienced owner, one that also has the physical strength to handle a big bouncy juvenile male. Mel knows some basic commands and is food motivated. Mel has been fully vetted and would do best in a large securely fenced in back yard where he can get plenty of exercise. While living at BEAR, Mel has made friends with two of our females! He is playful with both females however he will not tolerate a male dog in his space. It is best that he not be placed with small animals or small children, as he is big and bouncy and could knock over a small child or an older person. This is a big strong boy who clearly has no idea of his size and strength.Do you think you have what it takes to give this big happy guy a safe home?
