Bear is a 3 year old male Akita who who was picked up as a stray in Central NJ. Bear is a real sweetie but takes a few days to warm up to new people but once he does is a real mush this is typical of the breed. Bear loves food, and will sit for treats. He has shown no aggression while with us but we don't recommend young kids or other dogs in the household. Bear needs a family who understands and has experience with Akitas and who would large companion dog for the family. From our observation Bear still acts very much a like a pup, loves to run and chase balls, and will play with stuffed toys. We have no issues taking his toys from him and he loves a good tug of war.

Carson is a three 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, big, bouncy, and is 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. We feel an adult only home as a single pet would be best for Carson. He 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 car rides. This akita will need a akita breed experienced home.Interested in Carson? Please go to our website at www.bigeastakitarescue.org and fill out an online application! View full description »

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?

Robby came to us as a stray from the city of Philadelphia. It sadly appears that Robby has had a bit of a hard life due to some scaring on his face and ears in which we suspect came from living in filthy conditions . Since coming to us at BEAR Robby has finally started to put on some much needed weight. So far Robby has been easy to handle and enjoys being pet and given attention. Robby loves to give kisses once he knows you and would love a home where he can go for daily walks and be given his favorite treats. We have discovered Robby knows some basic commands also. This is a very kind and gentle boy who surely deserves a chance .....Interested in adopting this Akita? Please go to our website under available Akitas and fill out an online adoption application.
