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.

      Breed: Akita
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Manassas, VA
      Posted Breed: Akita. Bred by Nathan Fenby of New Oxford, Pa. Snow Bell - 3-4 y.o., white Import female. Snow Bell (fka Snow Ball) is a petite pixie'ish female, that epitomizes Japanese femininity. She is playful and flirty, friendly and curious about all going on around her, a real charmer. She walks well on leash. Will alert when other dogs in yards bark at her and will arouse quickly. This can be cut short by a verbal correction. She will remain on alert but will continue walking well. We then practiced sitting (which she did very well), but would need some practice on staying 'put'. When she settled down, she was very kissy and quite the cuddler. She leaned into me and loved to have her chest scratched and tummy rubbed. Her tail reminded me of a huge Spider Chrysanthemum corsage attached to her hip, combined with the pink lead, all she needed was a parasol to be Tokyo's best girl. I believe this girl has been in several homes and it is apparent that she has learned to be skillful in her efforts to pick and choose what she wishes to do. I think she will do fine in an Akita savvy home, with stability and boundaries, who won't fall victim to her charming efforts to have things her way. Snowbelle would be best as an only dog in a home with no small children. She has had some issues with anxiety while being crated and left alone. Her ideal home would have someone home most of the day.

      Posted Breed: Akita. Yoko is a very sweet girl. She plays with the resident dogs;interested in kitties, but will leave them alone when corrected, great and very submissive with people of all ages. She is learning "sit" and "down" and to walk well on leash. She does not get car sick. She is crated for short periods of time and has displayed no anxiety in the crate. She loves to shred paper and will play with her toys. Very treat oriented, VERY athletic, would make a good agility dog. Yoko can live with a dog of the opposite sex. However, she can get aggressive when food or a favored toy is involved. We keep her out of the kitchen when we are fixing dog meals and she eats in her crate. Her high value treats are only available to her in her crate.

      Posted Breed: Akita / Husky. Jack is one of the "Blues Brothers", two huskitas who came into ARMAC after their owner was deployed. We had originally been made aware of him and his brother Koda three years ago. They had escaped one time too many from the breeder who gave them up. They were adopted and did very well in their new home until the owner was deployed and could find no one to take them. He turned them back into the shelter who contacted us. They are in need of some exercise to lose a little weight. Lookig for great walking companions? We would like to place these boys together !! Stay tuned for more info on both.

      Posted Breed: Akita / Husky. Koda is one of the "Blues Brothers" who came in with his brother Jack, another huskita. We were contacted on them a couple of years ago. They escaped several times from their breeder who finally gave them up to the shelter. The shelter found them a home. Unfortunatley, the owner was deployed and could not find a place for them, so returned them to the shelter. Both are a bit pudgy and could do with some exercise. We would love to place them together !! More to come as we get to know them better.

      Posted Breed: Akita. IF YOU SEE ADOPTION PENDING ON A DOG, THEY ARE IN THEIR ADJUSTMENT PERIOD IN THEIR NEW HOME. Once we hear from th new owners at the end of that period, the adoption is permanent. Naoki (formely known as Neeko) was surrended to a local animal shelter by his owners. Naoki, and his two doggie companions, escaped the owners backyard a few times. We don't know for certain how they escaped, but the owner said Naoki dug under the fence. And while the trio were intimidating running at large, they did not hard any person or animal. The owners decided that Naoki was the mastermind behind the escapes, they were sick of being fined by AC, so they gave him up. Naoki is a BIG boy, he came to ARMAC in early March 2015 weighing about 86 lbs., but at a healthy weight he would be around 105 lbs. He's very friendly, enjoys interacting with people, loves going for car rides and overall is a very nice dog. He lived with children ages 17 and 3, so we belive he is good with kids. But given his size, and his active nature, he may be better suited for a home with children over the age of 7. He walks very well on leash (which is a big plus given his size). Naoki was adopted, but exhibited some separation anxiety issues as an only dog. We believe that he would be better placed in a home with a female dog. If your interested in possibly adopting Naoki, please see http://akitarescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for complete details on how our adoption process, including meet and greets, works.

Hi, my name is Niko and I’m a 7 year old Akita who weighs around 95 lbs. Let me tell you a little about myself. I can be the biggest couch potato who loves to hang out with my foster family, but I also enjoy taking long walks. My foster mom walks me for 40 minutes every day and if she tries to cut it short, I’ll stop and let her know we aren’t done yet. I have very good manners inside the house. While I do well with the other resident dogs in my foster home, I would really prefer to be the only dog. I like older children who are dog savvy and know how to give me my space when I need it. You’re probably wondering where I came from. Freedom Farm rescued me 5 years ago when I ended up at a Ft. Campbell shelter. In my first foster home, I was the only dog and I loved all the attention. Shortly after I was rescued, the 2010 flood happened. My foster mom was so scared because her house had started to flood. So she grabbed me and my leash and we headed to higher ground. Luckily, some nice people were out in boats helping families and they picked us up and took us to safety. After that, I did have to go into boarding for a little while. That’s when a family saw me and took me home. Sadly, I was recently returned to Freedom Farm because I wasn’t used to having a baby around. Overall, I’m in pretty good health for my age. I do have thyroid medicine that I take every day and I’m taking glucosamine to help with my arthritis. I’m a sweet boy who loves to meet new people. Do you have a spot on your couch for me?Niko is located in Nashville Tennesee. Contact Kim at akitas2love@gmail.com for more information
