He's right for you if...

You've had experience with the Akita breed before. He could possible be rehomed with a female dog and a family, depending on your circumstances and ability to give him the attention he deserves.

Update on 27 June 2020


Yoshi is a very handsome akita, with a great personality, looking for an experienced owner who has had akitas before and know the breed well.


Yoshi loves people and is very friendly. He could possibly live with a female depending on a meet and greet. He could also join a family who have had one before. We don't know if he has any cat experience, this would have to be tested by the applicant.


Yoshi is very playful, he loves his toys and enjoys playing with the volunteers, he enjoys the attention. He is great on his lead and loves his walks.


Yoshi will make a fantastic pet for the right owner.

Yoshi is a very friendly and playful Akita on the lookout for an owner who has lots of dog experience and understands the breed.

Yoshi has a great personality, he loves spending time with people and being centre of attention. He might be able to live with a female pending a successful meet and greet. If a suitable family were to apply, he could possibly live with them. We are not sure how he is with cats, this would have to be assessed by the applicant.

Yoshi will play with anything, he loves the trampoline, the paddling pool, the agility tunnel and any toy he can get his paws on. He is very good on his lead when he's out walking and really enjoys being out and about. Yoshi is an amazing boy who will charm anyone who comes to meet him, he's not to be missed.

Introducing Yoshi, a stray, who had to wait 6 weeks in the Pound to come to us as we have been so busy lately.

Yoshi is a very sturdy handsome akita with a lovely temperament. He's very friendly with people, he loves attention and being rubbed down. We haven't had a chance to assess him with other dogs yet, it will be done in the coming days. Yoshi loves to go for a walk and is good on his lead.


We're still getting to know this boy so keep an eye out for his updates.
