Located in Ohio \ Foster Home This is Apollo, a very handsome 1.5 year old American Akita. He is still very much a puppy & learning his manners. He is apprehensive of men/boys but he’s working on overcoming his fears & will continue to show progress with patience and socialization. He is a big boy who loves to use his nose to try to open doors, nudge his people for attention, and get ice out of the ice maker! He LOVES his toys and stuffed animals & can play fetch for hours on end. When not playing he loves to go to for car rides & walks. He is a tall boy with long legs so a 6ft fence is mandatory. He is also a huge snuggle bug preferring to be right next to his people cuddled up on a blanket. He gets along with submissive dogs of his same size, but he’s still young so I would prefer he be the only dog. He’s good with older children, and hasn’t been tested with younger ones or cats so a family without kids or with older kids is preferable. He is neutered & up to date on shots.

Bonded Pair. Meet Astra, a young, happy female Akita who came to us with her best buddy Al. Both of these Akitas have been picked up stray so we don't have much history. We do know they are both happy, beautiful, and friendly Akitas. Seems at one point they probably where both beloved house pets. We would like to place them together if possible. These Akitas would do best as only pets in a breed experienced home. Both Al and Astra and should go to a active home with a large secured fenced in yard so they can romp and play.

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. Sheldon 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 breed experienced owner who can make him feel safe in new situations. Are you interested in Sheldon?
