Rescue Me ID: 17-04-29-00316Zephyr (male)

Akita    Age: Puppy

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

    Zephyr is a 1 - 2 year old Akita boy who is still very much a puppy. He could be nicknamed 'Smoochie' as he readily gives kisses to all he meets -- hands, face, clothing, he kisses whatever is close. He is great with people and would do well with a female doggy companion, but no cats please. This boy has not had much training, but is willing to learn and become a good companion. He just needs some gentle guidance and a patient heart from his new owner. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk!

Akita    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 

    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. Draco is a young and healthy 8 years old. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. ... (Read More)When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)

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)

    Meet Mya (pronounced Maya)! She is a sweetheart of a girl who needs a new home! She is very friendly and lived all six years of her life as an indoor family member!

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-20-00351Katsumi (female)

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Katsumi goes by 'Sumi', and has quite the personality. She lived with other dogs and cats and loves people and children around her. Her list of commands includes sit, stay and come, and she would love the attention that learning new things brings. Her ideal home would be to have someone around most of the time, and/or a doggy friend (preferably a male dog). She loves to flop on the floor and roll over for tummy rubs, loves rides in the car, and knows how to use a doggie door. But do not expect her to like being in a crate. She is a cuddle bug and will be your constant companion and does a little happy dance with her front feet when you come ... (Read More)home. Her former owner shaved her down, thinking she had allergies, but she is low thyroid and needs thyroid medication which is cheap and easy to give. Since being on thyroid meds, her hair appears to be growing back in. However, she does also have a condition that causes the body to attack the hair follicles, and will need weekly application of oil to keep her skin from becoming dry and infected, along with gentle baths after to wash off the oil. And she will love the attention she gets during those treatments. Sumi is a sweet and gentle dog who just wants someone to love her. She is 8 years young and very frisky.

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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-29-00473Kata (female)

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 

    You would never know to look at Kata that a few months ago she was half her weight, had lost half her fur and was running stray. Her recovery has been a miracle, and this 2 1/2 year old girl is now a gorgeous Akita who turns heads. She is healthy, happy, and very frisky, and can entertain herself playing pounce on the toys. She loves to run, and would probably make a good hiking buddy. Kata is on the small side for an Akita, but makes up for it in energy. She got excited at one of the adoption events where they had a lure course, and she saw the other dogs chasing the fake animal, so we let her try it. She actually caught the lure. Because ... (Read More)she does have this strong prey drive, she will need to be the only pet in the home. She has come a long way in her recovery and is ready and eager for that new home.

Akita    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Need Foster or Adopter: Teddy Girl is a sweet and very passive dog who started life at a hoarder's home. She is very shy with people but does well with dogs. She would love a foster or adoptive home who would work on her social skills to become more outgoing. Having a confident, outgoing other dog in the home would go a long way to her becoming more comfortable with people. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will be rewarded by seeing Teddy Girl blossom. She knows how to use a doggy door, and walks nicely with you on leash without pulling. She is comfortable in a crate, and is used to going out of the yard into the big world. See ... (Read More)all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org.

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

    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 ...

Akita    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
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 am on 3 prescription meds for 1) arthritis aches, 2) help my liver function better, and 3) prevent bladder leakage when I sleep. 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 ...

He knows some obedience commands, is easy to walk on leash, and is comfortable being crated if necessary He needs no further training and will fit in like he was always there. However, he is not too crazy about sharing his home with another dog, but would love kids and lots of people around. He is a social dog, but also loves to just hang out or go for an occasional car ride. He recently had blood work and a dental done, so he has a clean bill of health. We think Yuuki is ...

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

    I am Kaizen, but I answer to Zen also. Show me a treat and I will show you my moves -- automatic sit, down or paw. Try to ignore me, and I will gently paw at you for attention. Give me a lap, and my head will be in it. I really, really like attention and I hope I can find a home without any other pets, because I do not want to live with other pets. You will not need anyone but me to keep you company. I can be very polite and greet you with a play bow. I recently went to the vet and had a full blood workup, and I am pretty healthy other than needing some thyroid pills, which I am told do not cost much in people money. Take me for a walk or a ... (Read More)ride in the car to new and exciting places, and you will see I have a lot of spunk for an older girl of 8. It would be best if any children in the home are at least 12 or older.See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)

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

I can entertain myself with squeaky toys all day long and I really love to learn new things. I can sit, go down so fast your head will spin, catch treats thrown up in the air, and know an obedience recall where I come to you, spin around and sit at your side. I would love to learn more new tricks that would earn me attention and treats. I love longs walks and would be an excellent hiker, jogging or rollerblade companion.

Akita    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Yogi turns heads where ever he goes, he is just that good looking. He is a big dude of about 90 lbs but can be as silly as they come. He just wants love, and to follow a laser pointer around for fun. Yogi tends to have a dominant personality and wants to run the household and the family, and will need a confident leader owner who knows how to be alpha and keep Yogi in check. His new owner should be sure Yogi performs his sits, downs and shake for his treats and meals, which puts him in more of a submissive position. Yogi does not want to live with other pets, and should be in an all adult home (no children). Yogi is a senior in good health, ... (Read More)with just some arthritis starting. A little glucosamine will keep him active. See all our dogs @ www.AkitaAdvocates.org. When emailing, include the best phone number to reach you. Let's talk! (Less)
