Carson is a 3 year old neutered male akita who came into rescue after his owner became ill and could not care for him any longer. Carson is gorgeous, he is big, bouncy and in beautiful condition. When first meeting this big guy he can be very aloof at first focusing on those that care for him . Carson will need time to bond in this case. We feel a adult only home as a single pet would be best for Carson. Carson is very big and has a rough play style so children would be knocked down by this big guy. Carson is very good on leash and minds well on rides in the car.Interested in Carson ?

Nikita is a very young female Akita that came to us before the holiday after her owner left her at a NYC shelter unwanted. Nikita is going to need a experienced breed owner. She needs a good strong leader, as she is very unsure of things and can be reactive behind a barrier. We are working with Nikita to socialize her and build her confidence while here. This Akita will need a quiet home, with a routine to thrive. No other pets please for this girl. Once she bonds to you she will love you unconditionally. If you have the knowledge and experience to give this young girl the second chance she truly deserves please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and put in an online application. Nikita has a lot of potential in the right hands! View full description »

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.
