One of the saddest things we see in rescue is an older dog dumped because he/she is no longer wanted. This is what happened to Simba, after 8 years of love and loyalty he was no longer wanted. Yes, just like that. He found himself in a crowded Philadelphia shelter where space is a grave concern. Samba is a big, sweet, loving boy who loves to lean into with his entire body to be pet and loved on. How anyone could do this to him is beyond our understanding. We are looking to put him in a home that would treasure this boy, he so deserves to spend his time being loved, and treated with kindness.We have dog tested Simba and it is possible he live with the right female dog after a meet and greet and proper introduction. We are thinking a quiet home where he can just live out his remaining few years would work best for Simba. Is that loving home yours?Please go to our website at: www.bigeastakitarscue.org and put in an online adoption applications under our available dogs. Thank you for wanting to give an Akita another chance.

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?

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?
