Billie, a lovely Akita, found her way to us from a local shelter in NJ after being discovered wandering in a park. Initially bewildered, she would alert bark, but now, she's settled in beautifully, realizing we're her friends. Billie has mastered some basic commands, is housebroken, and walks well on a leash. While she may take a little time to warm up, once she does, she's a sweet kisser who adores zoomies. Billie appears to get along with male dogs, so with a proper introduction, she could potentially live happily with the right male companion.

A stunning brindle Akita who is sure to capture your heart. When Willow first arrived, she was very withdrawn, often pancaking and showing uncertainty, which is understandable given her background. She needed to learn how to be a happy dog, and fortunately, we have amazing individuals who have taken Willow under their wings and worked wonders with her. Today, Willow confidently walks down busy streets on a leash and behaves well in a home setting. She is crate trained, housebroken, and with a little time to warm up, she will become your best friend. We believe Willow would thrive in a home with a confident male dog to help her feel secure.
