JAWT 1034- Bridget
She is nearly 6 months old and living in Ireland. Transport can be arranged.
She is not as lively as her sister Fern, preferring a quieter life, but still a typically playful pup. Bridget would do well with a neutered companion and would love to have a family of her own. Could it be yours? Please get in touch for more information.
JAWT 953 Sapphire
Saffy is looking for a new home through no fault of her own.
She is a lovely bouncy 12 month old friendly girl based in Chester. She could possibly live with a well behaved neutered male but needs older dog savvy children only.
Sapphire has some decent basic training but could do with somebody who has plenty of time to spend with her due to separation issues. She currently lives with other dogs but would need to be introduced to a new companion. Sapphire is great with people, a typical giddy big pup!
Please get in touch for more information.
JAWT 1030 - Flavia
This little girl found herself in a pound through no fault of her own. She was quickly spotted and recognised. She is now under JAWT care and due to arrive at the Blackpool kennels today. Hopefully she will not be there too long before a new home is found for her.
Flavia is just over 6 months old and everybody who has met her in the last couple of weeks after being abandoned by her owner has confirmed what a sweet natured and beautiful girl she is.
She has lived with a male Akita previously so could potentially live with another well mannered neutered male.
For more information, please get in touch.
JAWT 961 - Mika
She is a beautiful little lady of 2 years old currently based in Warrington, Cheshire. She seeks a new home though no fault of her own, her owner would like to see her settle in a home that can offer her more time. She lives with a toddler and a baby, not dog aggressive so could potentially live with a well mannered male companion. No experience of cats!
Mika can be a little guarded (in true Akita fashion) when people first meet her, but will soon let her guard down once she meets you. Has very basic training, walks okay on the lead but would benefit from some training. No possessive traits over food and not really interested in toys, for now!
All in all, a typical young Akita, just needs somebody willing to bring her on to the next level of her life. Please get in touch if you think you can help.
JAWT 987 - Roxie
Introducing Roxie! This little girl is 4 years old and lives in Stockton-On-Tees.
She does live with a young child at the moment but may be best suited to older dog savvy children. Her owner is struggling to find the time to offer the Roxie the care and exercise she deserves.
Roxie has not been dog aggressive in the past so may be able to live with a well mannered dog pending responsible introductions.
Our rep found a happy friendly girl when assessing Roxie who offered her paw followed by a kiss.
If you are interested in Roxie, or would like more information then please get in touch.
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!
