Posted Breed: Akita (medium coat). in ROMOLAND, CALIFORNIA My perfect day would be to play with the teenagers, go for a walk, and cuddle up with a favorite toy for a nap. Makoto is very obedient with commands, pampers his toys, and once bonded, likes hugs. He is great with baths, friendly with toys, and has no food aggression. VERY affectionate and submissive to his family. He should be an only dog, and becomes like your loving child when he trusts you. Loves to give kisses, rolls over for belly rubs, and loves to play fetch with a ball. Has the great Akita traits of loyalty and protecting his family. He is adventurous and loves exploring with his owner. He would love hiking, and exploring the outdoors on leash. Definitely NO kids, as he is reactive with small children. Meet him at #AkitaRanch 28930 Ellis Ave, Romoland, CA (open 10-5 7days) or email apassionforpaws@gmail.com for adoption information..

More About Akita Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Romoland, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). In Foster Needs Home BRUNO THE PITTBULL NEEDS A PERMANENT HOME! In Foster until forever family steps up. Here's a Bruno was surrendered by a family with his siblings to a kill shelter. When he arrived he was depressed and moping around. The shelter guessed he was about 5years old. However, since being fostered, Bruno is smiling and wiggling and wagging his tail happily everyday! He was professionally bathed and assessed by a very reputable vet at which time we were informed that Bruno couldn't be more than 2 years old and was super healthy! Bruno is a love bug. He loves to cuddle, lick, and is very calm around the house. He's great with my 8 year old son and his friends. He enjoys being around people and loves being outdoors. He loves his walks and is now trained to sit before his leash is hooked up, waits (stays) sitting when the door is opened and waits for the person walking him to tell him to "come" before exiting the front door. Bruno is learning not to pull on the walks and is improving daily! He sits before crossing the road and is really just an all around great dog! Bruno brings joy and love everywhere he goes and is excited to meet his forever family soon!

      Posted Breed: Akita / Weimaraner / Mixed (medium coat). Located in MISSOULA, MONTANA THIS DOG HAS BEEN COURTESY POSTED FOR A PRIVATE PARTY. HE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN MISSOULA MONTANA. PLEASE CONTACT peblakeslee8@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting him. Our dog, Hiro, is a 10-year-old Akita mix (1/2 Akita, 1/4 Rottweiler, 1/4 Weimeraner). We have had him for 9 years and we are re-homing him because, despite our training efforts, he is aggressive with our 3-year-old granddaughter. She is having a sibling soon and they are in our home frequently. He has given warnings with baring of teeth and growling, no biting. We rescued him from a no-kill shelter in Portland, OR. 9 years ago where we lived until one month ago (we now live in Missoula, MT). He required about 2 years of training which has made him a very well-behaved and loving dog. It is excruciating to give him away, but we know of no other good answer because now that we know he isn't 'getting over' the aggression, we can't, in good conscience have him near our grandchildren. We consulted our obedience trainer, but she said to try a couple of things, but not to expect him to change at 10 years old. He has some mid-back issues that are minimal if we don't allow a lot of jumping (even though he's not a jumper) or hikes with much elevation. He has a sensitive stomach but does great if he eats only his appropriate kibble. We have some pain meds which are rarely necessary for back pain. He is current on all his immunizations, is getting Frontline for fleas/ticks, and is neutered He is fun, sweet, loyal, 'talks' to you when he's about to eat, everyone loves him, loves to go in the car. He sits, stays, waits, heels, plays 'find it', comes almost always, does not retrieve very well.

His best friend was our cat until the time we moved. He would not be good with just any cat; however, he may adapt to a cat over time. He gets along with other dogs, but if there is another dominant male, he will posture and growl. He has never bit pets or people. -- Patricia and Marco 971-219-7006 Follow us on Instagram @ http://instagram.com/apassionforpaws and on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Passion-For-Paws-Rescue-Inc/95142903795 FOR COURTESY POSTINGS, PLEASE CONTACT THE SHELTER OR INDIVIDUAL LISTED DIRECTLY for more information on a particular dog.

      Location: Romoland, CA
      Posted Breed: Akita (medium coat). "Ninka is a lovely and lively young spayed female American Akita. Ninka came out of the Lancaster CA shelter having been dumped after having a litter of pups. She was very emaciated and had a skin condition. Ninka is now fully vetted. It turns out not only had she just weaned pups but she suffered from a disease called pancreatic insufficiency. She was not absorbing the nutrients in her food. The solution to this condition is simple. She just needs enzymes added to her food. Ninka is around four years old and just stunning. She has gained over 15 pounds since she was brought into rescue. She enjoys her new found health and can be quite elegant as she races around the yard. Ninka is spending a lot of time in a home with several children aged ten and up. Ninka loves cuddling up on her doggie bed and is house broken. As is typical of female Akitas, she does not do well with other dogs. She has not been cat tested. Ninka is currently being fostered in Palmdale. She is available through A Passion for Paws.
