JAWT 984 - Kato
Introducing Kato! This handsome chap was a stray and is now in kennels in Hull. He is believed to be around 7 or 8 years old and although seems to be ok with other calm dogs, he may be best suited to being the only dog in the household.
He has basic training and wont snatch at treats. Will walk okay on his lead and enjoys a walk.
Kato would like a calm house to relax in, with no children as we have no history on him. He would make a super companion for somebody with an easy lifestyle. For more information please get in touch.
JAWT 999 - Alaska
Introducing Alaska! He is a stunning boy of only 4 years old looking to secure a home of his own. Alaska is in a rescue centre in the South and we are promoting him on their behalf.
Although he is well behaved when socialising with other dogs, the staff believe he would be happier being the only dog in the household, but could possibly live with a cat.
He is a well mannered boy with some basic training so we are looking for experienced owners who can continue with his training. Alaska will not be placed with children as he has no history. If you think you could offer this wonderful boy a home, please get in touch for more information.
JAWT 794 - Kane
Introducing Kane, a beautiful boy of 6 years old and based in Torquay in a foster home. Kane found himself in the pound, scheduled to be PTS through no fault of his own. He is now in safe boarding under the care of JAWT.
He has a decent level of obedience and a very friendly boy, we would not place with young children as he has unknown history. He needs to be the only furry in the household.
Kane has limited hearing so we are looking for an owner willing to work with this. He can hear certain things so please do not think this cannot be worked with, Just makes him that little bit extra special. For more information please get in touch.
JAWT 970 - Rex
Introducing Rex! This beautiful young man is on foster in Ayrshire, Scotland. He has not had the best start in life but has bags of potential and just waiting for his forever home. He has basic commands and lots of energy. New owners must be committed to good exercise and carry out training routines.
Rex could possibly live with a well mannered female pending successful introductions. He is a lovely natured boy but would benefit from an experienced owner to teach him some manners. His foster mum would love to keep him but not in a position to do so. Rex has lived with children previously but is a boisterous boy so dog savvy older children only!
If you think you could offer Rex a forever home, please get in touch.
JAWT 969 - Nico
Introducing Nico! This beauty is based in Ayrshire, Scotland. He is around 9 months old, good with kids, can be rehomed with a well mannered spayed bitch but not with cats.
Nico seeks a new home through no fault of his own. He has good basic training and is quite calm for a dog of his age. Whoever adopts Nico will be adopting a wonderful friend for life with much to offer.
The JAWT was the first Akita association dedicated to Japanese Akita rescue registered as a charity in England and Wales, Registration Number 1080152, and has been helping Akitas and their owners for many years.
The main purpose of this site is to give the dogs we love and care for a better chance of finding a new home. On this site you will also find information about the work we do, the people behind the trust and how you can help.
Unfortunately, and like many other breeds, there seems to be a number of people who consider the breeding, rescue and welfare of this breed to be simply a good way to make money for themselves. There are only two reputable, registered Akita rescue charities here in the UK and we all do as much as we can to aid the plight that some of our best loved friends find themselves in.
This trust is registered as a charity in England and Wales as no.1080152, and was the first registered charity in the UK dedicated to the welfare of these animals. The trust relies completely on the donations and sponsorships that it receives. None of the trustees or area coordinators receives any payment for the help and support they offer to the re-homers of these fantastic animals, and in many cases will withhold from receiving payments that they are entitled to in respect of petrol, food and vet bills associated with the fostering of the dogs until permanent homes can be found.
If you would like to know more about how you could help the trust continue its work the please follow the FAQs link at the side of this page.
To see a full list of all the dogs we currently have waiting for new homes click here or follow the 'Dogs in Need' link at the side of this page, or if you have a dog that you would like us to help rehome, please complete the form found here and we'll make contact with you.
It's been a great start to this years re-homing with both Elvis and Choji adopting their foster parents.. We welcome them to the exclusive failed fosterers club
Also Eden, Hajime, Bertie & Kira, who are four of the eight puppies that JAWT stepped in to take care of at the end of October have gone to their furever homes
Please take a look at our dogs in need section for those dogs still available for adoption
That since the trust was founded in 1998 it has helped over 1000 Akitas, both Japanese and American type, find new homes!
