Posted Breed: Akita / Collie (long coat). Miles is a shy young Akita/Collie mix with a panda face who is very cat friendly. The cat who lurks around #AkitaRanch was even eating out of his bowl with no reaction from Miles. He was rescued by another group then returned to the shelter so he needs to learn to trust again. He is timid but if you are patient, he'll allow you to pet and give him treats. The team has been spending time with Miles and helping him feel confident on leash and meeting new people. He runs around the play yard and loves exploring. He will need a family that understands his shyness and help him grow in confidence. When he came in he did like other dogs but he went thru a period of being fearful of them. We really think he can be fine with another dog but being surrounded by a lot of big tough males might be a bit disconcerting for him. Come meet sweet Miles at the Akita Ranch! #AkitaRanch 28930 Ellis Ave, Romoland, CA, open 10-5 daily.

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.

      rescue
      Breed: Chow Chow-Husky Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / Chow Chow / Mixed (medium coat). located in Romoland CA A little rough around the edges, Cedar is a mix of confident gentleman meets backyard bruiser, but he is mostly misunderstood. Cedar was in an abusive home before coming to the Akita Ranch which is why he can still have some trust issues in new situations. But deep down he is much more refined and likes to take care of his own. Working with him during his time at the ranch we have seen much growth from some of the issues he had when he arrived: he can be food aggressive but has learned to trust with his food if you give him space and a safe place to eat, he is selective with people he meets but is very willing to follow the lead of a person he trusts. He is very responsive to a respectful, loving person who is willing to train him with consistent positive reinforcement training and give him his space when he needs it. Once he feels safe, he will come to you on his own and loves scratches and affection. Due to humans who broke his trust many times, for a time, he will keep an eye on you until he sees that you are dependable and he then begins to let down his guard. Cedar is a noble, honest, character and one of the greatest personalities at the ranch. He really wants to make his people happy but needs time and patience to continue to overcome the pain from his past. He walks well on leash, loves going for car rides, is very well-mannered at the park and in new situations if his person understands his limits and respects his fears. If you have patience and a tender heart, and are willing to help him work through his past, Cedar would love to grow with you and see what this great big world has to offer!
