Hi my name is Willa! I am an outgoing, big and beautiful female Akita. I would do best in an active adult only home as a only pet for someone with a breed experience owner. Willa loves her toys, songs and things she can play with. Willa is very playful however she does have rough play style and will need someone who is able to tell her NO when needed. Willa knows how to live in a home and minds well. She is fully crate trained, easy to brush, and knows her basic commands, although Willa can pull on leash.Interested in this Akita?

Gage comes to BEAR out of Memphis, TN. Sadly, Gage sustained a gunshot wound to his back at close range. Despite what he has lived through, this boy still loves people and gives tail wags. Gage has been released from the hospital in TN, he is now here in NJ. Gage is a very friendly , very active fellow who would do best in a home with a secured fenced in yard so he can run and play. It is possible for Gage to live with the right female large breed dog, so a meet and greet would be needed as well as time to acclimate. Gage was a stray so we do not know who did this or what happened. Gage is very food motivated so training is coming along well with this happy guy.Interested in Gage? Please go to our website and out in an online adoption application. Applicants should have breed knowledge. View full description »

Meet Oreo, a young very large male Akita. This fellow takes a few minutes to warm up but when he does he is friendly and enjoys attention. Oreo would do well in a home with a secured fenced in yard so he can burn off that puppy energy. Speaking of puppy energy, did you see those ears? They are tipped which makes this big boy look like a pup. Adorable!Oreo will need to be a only pet. However, this big boy has a big loving heart and will fill your home with so much joy you won't need any other!Interested in Oreo? Please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and put in an online adoption application for him. View full description »
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 breed experienced owner who can make him feel safe in new situations.Are you interested in Sheldon?
