Rescue Me ID: 17-10-12-00517Raider (male)

Akita Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Raider is only 2 yrs old and loves to play with other dogs. He is a mix of Akita and several other breeds. He can spend an hour at the dog park playing with everyone there. He needs a new home because he was adopted from the shelter by someone who works all day and does not have the time to give to Raider, plus has a tiny yard. So Raider is looking for someone who has other dogs who need a play buddy, and someone who would give him lots of opportunity to take walks and hikes and be active. He is very social and loves meeting new people, been around kids as young as 5 yrs old but probably should not live with a cat. See all our dogs @ ... (Read More)www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rambo is a really loving boy. He is from Texas where he had been waiting several years for a home because so many Akitas are available there! On his transport to Phoenix, he had kisses for everyone he met. He is a big boy at 103 lbs and he's tall, so he is not overweight. Rambo is approximately five years young. He would be fine as an only dog or with a large laid back female canine companion but no cats or small dogs please. He is quiet and well behaved and would love an active family. He is a very happy guy! See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk!

Akita    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    At only a year old, Koko is an Akita girl looking for a forever home this time around. She is well behaved, affectionate, and will lean in on you for pets and back scratches. She also carefully jumps up to give you a big hug and loves to get playful. Because she is still a puppy, she will be a lot of fun for her next owner. Although she does not seem to know any obedience commands, she more than makes up for it with her affectionate nature. Koko is a smaller size package of only about 60 lbs. She could live with a very submissive male canine companion, but he needs to let her be boss and make all the rules. See all our dogs @ ... (Read More)www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Angel is truly that--an angel in dog fur. At 4 years old, she has had quite the life but is safe now with AARTA and looking for a new home who will appreciate her sweet temper, her need to be around her family all the time, and her eagerness to learn new things. Angel was picked up as a stray on the street, and appears to have been hit on her back end by something heavy. Don't know if it might have been her former owner or something that happened on the street, but she was not able to walk when picked up. One of her hip fractures has healed, but the other needs more rest and restricted activity through mid September. So her new home ... (Read More)needs to be able to provide that restriction. In spite of her ordeal, she still wags her tail constantly and has faith in the humans around her. She would do well with a male larger breed buddy as a companion (but cannot play till mid Sept), or she needs a home where someone is around all the time. She loves treats and has perfect house manners, and will follow you around as your constant companion. Please consider giving Angel and secure and loving home for the rest of her life, she deserves it. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-29-00367Ghost (male)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ghost is no apparition. We think he is part Akita, part Chow. He has an Akita head, a Chow's black tongue and shorter legs, and stunning light yellowish eyes. Although he's got short legs, he's still Chow size of about 60 lbs. He's pretty calm and laid back, and he's met and done well with other dogs, but probably would prefer some female doggy companions. Ghost can be aloof at times (that's his Akita + Chow heritage), and other times outgoing, but always friendly. He's about 5 years old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

She can show you moves like sit, high five, and is an expert at using the doggy door. She is able to live with a laid back, submissive male larger breed dog after polite introductions, and has lived with older children. She is a sweet, calm and loving girl who just wants to be your new best friend. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Draco, welcome to Arizona. He comes from our sister rescue, Lone Star Akita Rescue, in Texas. He was not getting the adoption opportunities he deserves, so we hope AARTA can find this big goofy teddy bear his new forever home. As you might have heard, everything is bigger in Texas and Draco does not disappoint in that regard. He is a giant of a boy, about 135 lbs, but as sweet as they come. If you have been waiting for that perfect big boned Akita, he is your man so bring your chicken (that is his favorite) and come meet this mountain of an Akita.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jackson is ready for a little adventure and fun times. He loves to play ball, catch a Frisbee or eat ice cubes (seriously, when you go to the freezer, he wants you to toss him one). Car rides and playing with kids are also favorite pastimes. Jackson already knows sit, stay and shake. He has not lived with another dog so would really like to be the only pet; however, he did used to play with other dogs and might be willing to share his home with a submissive larger breed female dog companion. Jackson is a young and healthy 7 year old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. ... (Read More)Let's talk! (Less)

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beija (pronounced Bay-ja) is a big beautiful Akita girl. Her name means beautiful kisses in Japanese, and she lives up to that name. She is four and is great with people and kids despite her large size. However, Beija is a bit dog selective, in that she likes some and not others. A potential family should have no more than 1 very submissive male dog, and they will need to meet to be sure of compatibility. On the other hand, Beija would be perfectly happy being the only pet in the home. She has excellent house manners. Beija's family moved and the new landlord does not allow Akitas, so she is seeking a new place to settle in. See all our ...

Belgian Malinois Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kane is a Malinois/Akita mix who has some good looking traits of both breeds. He is energetic, affectionate and just wants to be with his people for attention and affection. He may be too big to be a lap dog, but he does not know that, and at least gets his head in your lap for hugs. He hangs close to you and wants to be your companion. You would think he is 2 when you see his energy level and really clean teeth, but he is 7 yrs old. He would love an active owner, ready to go on long hikes or even rollerblading.

    If you are looking for a well behaved, gentle and calm Akita, Zoe is your girl. Give this girl some loving, and she will be yours forever. She is a mature dog who has excellent house manners, can be calm and laid back, but ready to take long walks when you are. She has great energy for a senior and is very healthy, not even any arthritis that we can see. She was well trained to respond to stay, down, give paw, lay down, byebye, treat, good girl, and will easily learn more if you want her to. Leash manners are excellent with no pulling. However, Zoe does not want to live with other pets, so she must be your one and only. AARTA has known Zoe ...

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Special Needs: As a senior Akita girl of 11 1/2 yrs old, I am hoping not to have to live out my life in a kennel run. Please take me home with you.

I get along with other dogs very well (I lived with 7 in my last home, both males and females, from Chihuahua size to Pit Bull size), and a cat. You cannot get more compatible than that. Do not let my gray face fool you, it is my cuteness factor (so I am told). I am still very frisky and love to chase birds in the yard, but am not fast enough to catch any. I am ...

    This glamour shot shows Kaizen at her best. This girl is calm, quiet and well mannered in the house. Her moves include an automatic sit, down and give paw, and she loves playing with her squeaky toys, eating apples and to be by your side.

She does a little play bow or a dance when glad to see you, and if you ignore her, she uses her paw to gently remind you she is there. She also likes to put her head in your lap. Zen, as she is also known, will be the kind of dog who will come into your home and it will be like she has always been ... (Read More)there. No training needed. She is comfortable being crated if needed, walks perfectly on a leash, and is a dainty eater and drinker. No messes from this girl. She has a lot of spunk for a 9 yr old, so don't let that stop you.
