JAWT 1128 - Kara
Kara was taken from a Yorkshire pound and moved to a foster home in East Kilbride, Scotland. We believe her to only be approximately 18 months old but having had a bad start in life she behaves maturely.
She is a friendly and affectionate girl who has proven to be fantastic with the children in her foster home. Although she is currently living with a male Akita, she may be better as the only dog in the home, or at least be able to have her own space.
If you could offer Kara a new home, please get in touch.
JAWT 1116 Koda
He is 6 years old and based in Yorkshire. He is a real gentleman and a well mannered boy. He prefers the company of females but will warm to men once given time. He currently lives with JAWT 1117 Suki and we would love for them to be homed together if possible as they have always known each other.
Koda has been around young children but never lived with them 24/7 so dog savvy children only please. Koda is seeking a new home sadly due to personal issues of his owner. It is a very sad and much thought out decision but all for the best for the dogs.
For further information, please get in touch.
JAWT 938 Noble
Introducing Noble! 8 years young and living in the West Midlands.
He is used to children but would prefer dog savvy older kids please. He would be best suited as the only pet in the household, not because he is aggressive, just because he is not used to sharing. Noble has basic but very consistent training, he happily rolled over for tummy rubs from our assessor and showed no guarding around food. Not interested in toys, just a good fuss!
Could you offer Noble a new home? Please get in touch!
JAWT 956 - Kauto
Introducing Kauto! This 5 year old beauty is based in the midlands and seeking a home through no fault of his own.
He cannot be homed with other dogs, cats or young children. Kauto is a well mannered boy but would do well with further obedience training and lead work. He welcomed strangers in to his home and was happy to be fussed.
Kauto would benefit from a new owner with experience of large breed dogs. Our assessor said if they didn't have their own Akitas they would have him!
Do you have the time and room Kauto needs? 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!
