Posted Breed: Akita / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Cherie (cherie@mistyeyes.org) for more information about this pet.Polaris is a 3yr old Akita mix. He was found tied to a stop sign with a friend and taken to a high kill shelter. Their previous owners were found but didn't want the dogs back and officially surrendered them. His buddy was adopted right away but the shelter didn't feel poor Polaris was good enough to put on the adoption floor so slated him for euthanasia or rescue pull only. We pulled him to get him Veterinary care and he is now living in a foster home and doing great. He is potty trained and very loving. He takes a little time to warm to strangers. He would like to be invisible when sniffing and greeting new people. Then when he's comfortable, he's ready to interact with new friends. He does well with all his foster brothers and sisters. But prefers low energy, non dominant dogs. He has not been around cats, but did well giving space to the chickens at his foster home. Due to his initial fear of strangers, we would recommend him only to a home with older children. He has a few health issues, but they have not slowed him down. 2 years ago, with his previous owner, he had an autoimmune flare up that effects the muscles in his face/jaw. He is not on medication for this now but if it were to flare up again he would need a low dose of steroids to put it back under control which is a very inexpensive medication. He also has hip dysplasia, but at this time it appears his body has adjusted and allows him to live comfortably and pain free with this issue. Given a diet that supports joints and keeps inflammation low should help keep his hip issue and any further autoimmune issues at bay. However there is always a possibility that he could need surgery on his hips in the future. This was still no reason for this sweet boy to lose his life. He has so many wonderful years left to give to a family. Polaris is a sweet boy and lives to please his family. He enjoys being his human's right hand man and deserves a family as loyal as he is.All of our pets are current on vaccinations. Dogs are heartworm tested. Kitties are FIV/FeLV tested.

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.

This happy boy was found as a stray. No tags, no chip, covered in fleas and skinny as can be. One of our wonderful foster moms picked him up and took him home. Bagel has been neutered now, received his vaccinations, been tested for heartworm and is negative, YIPEE. He is a really great dog and loves people. We recommend him for homes with children 12 and up as he likes kids, but he doesn't enjoy the constant energy of the little ones. He is great and loves to snuggle with small dogs but is not good with dogs his size or bigger. He is a strong boy on a leash so could use some training. Bagel would do best in an active family who wants to play! When he's not playing, he loves to snuggle up with his people on the couch. This is one smart boy, he has already learned some basic commands and will be very easy to train. Could Bagel be the perfect fit for your family?All of our pets are current on vaccinations.
