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.

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?

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?

Kain was found during the hurricane in Texas in terrible condition. That has since changed . Kain has gained some much needed weight however we could not get his skin to clear up , Upon further testing it showed us Kain had a low thyroid and SA confirmed by skin biopsy . SA is a auto immune disease that does show up in the akita breed. It is very manageable and requires low doses of prednisone and oil baths. The low thyroid pretty much goes hand in hand with a auto immune problem and is managed on a inexpensive thyroid medication given daily for life. We at BEAR felt this akita is exceptional in temperament, he is friendly, loves people does well around other dogs and is so very grateful for walks, good food and being loved. We felt in our hearts due to him being such a sweet fellow he deserved as much as a chance as possible. Do you have a heart big enough to take on a special needs pup like our Kain ?
