4 May 2020
They're right for you if...
You already have akita experience and have no other pets in the home.
Update on 11 May 2020
When you look at Django & Georgia now, it's easy to forget the horrendous life they had before, that's why we are committed to finding these two beauties a home where they can live happily ever after together.
They will need someone with akita experience who will understand them and they will need to be the only pets in the household. We understand it's a big ask to rehome two dogs together and they're not small by any means but the right owner is out there and will appreciate everything these amazing dogs have to offer, we know it.
Django & Georgia are a bonded pair who have been through everything together, they are inseparable and we want to ensure that this does not change in their future. Both dogs are very playful, friendly, affectionate and all-around brilliant pets. They have gorgeous temperaments and are the perfect combination of personalities.
Georgia is the female, with the longer coat, she loves attention and lots of it. Django is the male, a lot more independent than Georgia.
They are looking forward to meeting their new owner and moving in with them soon.

Django & Georgia are such a cute pair who both have so much love to give. These two beauties have always been together, it's probably how they made it through their horrible past so we will be rehoming them as a pair only. Their new owner should have akita experience and have no other pets in the home.
Django & Georgia have thankfully bounced back after they were initially surrendered to the Ballina SPCA in a horrible state of neglect - matted coats, overgrown toenails and underweight, heartbreaking to witness. These two dogs have gorgeous temperaments and lovely personalities, they are very friendly, affectionate and playful. They pretty much do everything together without exception.
Georgia is the female, she still has her lovely coat. She is the more affectionate one and enjoys as much attention as she can get.
Django is slightly more aloof and independent, he's a lot more curious about his surroundings. Both dogs love their walks and can easily be taken out together as they are so good on their leads.
Django & Georgia are ready to move into their new home where they can really be part of the family and have nothing but fun for the rest of their days.

These two beauties are still waiting for their new home with an owner who has experience and loves everything about this amazing breed. Django & Georgia will only be rehomed together as they are inseparable and they will need to be the only pets in their new home.
Django & Georgia are back to good health again after they were initially surrendered to the Ballina SPCA in very bad shape and seriously neglected. Ballina SPCA reached out to us for help as we had the experience and the space for them.
Both dogs are happy, friendly, playful and affectionate. They really do like to do everything together, play, go for walks and share their run. They have brilliant temperaments and great personalities. They love being in the company of people and getting attention.
Georgia likes to be centre of attention and is definitely not as shy as Django, she's a real charmer. Django likes a fuss but he's content to do his own thing and is a lot more chilled out than Georgia. Django & Georgia will make great pets and bring the right home many laughs and fond memories for the rest of their days.

These two beautiful dogs are looking for a loving home with an experienced akita owner where they will be the only pets. We are rehoming them as a pair as they have always lived together and separating them would be devastating for Django & Georgia.
Django & Georgia were surrendered to the Ballina SPCA who asked us for help because we had the experience and the space for them. They are siblings and were in bad shape when they arrived at the Centre however they have really thrived since they got here and are back to good health.
Both dogs are very friendly, playful and affectionate. They have beautiful temperaments and like to do everything together, including sharing a run. They love attention and spending time with people.
Georgia is the female and is lucky enough to still have her long coat. She is a little bit more confident than Django and likes to have most of the attention on her. Django was not so lucky and had his long coat shaved before he got to us. He's shy and more laid-back than Georgia.
They love their walks, are great on their leads and are easy to walk at the same time.
We really want these two fantastic dogs to be treated as family and get all the love and care accordingly so they can forget about their troubled past.

Django & Georgia are siblings who were taken in recently from Ballina SPCA and sadly both dogs were very badly neglected.
Django suffered the loss of his long-haired coat while Georgia's was badly matted all over and had to be professionally treated, both dog's toenails were over an inch long and both were underweight, especially Django.
Thankfully both dogs are doing great now.
We know it is a big ask but we REALLY want to rehome these two gorgeous dogs together with someone who has experience of this breed.
While trying to find homes for each of these dogs individually, we have discovered how bonded Django and Georgia really are and it wouldn't sit right with us to separate them.
They live together in their run greeting everyone with wagging tails each day, they play together and they enjoy their walks together, they are just at their happiest when they are together so we hope it stays that way.
Django and Georgia are very playful, friendly and affectionate, both have lovely temperaments.

Django and his sibling, Georgia, were taken in recently from Ballina SPCA. Both dogs were very badly neglected but we're glad to report that they continue to improve day by day.
Django suffered the loss of what should be a lovely long-haired coat, he was shaved, so it must have been atrocious when it was shaved before he was surrendered to Ballina SPCA. The toenails on both dogs were over an inch long causing them untold pain and suffering.
Django is every bit the teddy bear he looks like, he's a big softie, very affectionate and friendly. He loves attention and playing in the yard with Georgia and the volunteers. He is really good on his lead and enjoys his walks, he can be a bit of a distraction for people driving by in their cars, they admire his unique look.

Introducing Django, he is one of two siblings we have taken in recently from Ballina SPCA. Both dogs were very neglected as you can see from his first few pictures, it's just beyond comprehension how an owner could let this happen, disgraceful.
Django came in with his coat already shaved, it was shaved before he was surrendered to Ballina SPCA so it must have been brutal. This will cause untold damage to the regrowth of his hair.
The toenails on both dogs were over an inch long, this is very painful for them, agonising.
We are working with Django and his sibling at the moment, getting them back to full health first and then we'll be helping them find the best homes possible.
Django is very friendly, affectionate and playful, he's a big softie with a heart of gold.
