JAWT 976 - Miller
Introducing Miller! He is 7 months old and based in the Nottingham area. He seeks a new home through no fault of his own.
Miller is typical of his age and a happy bouncy puppy who would complete any household. He has no issues with toys, treats etc and could potentially live with a well mannered spayed female dog.
He really does have a fabulous temperament and will be missed, but a new home is better for his own needs. For more information please get in touch.
JAWT 827 Dave
Introducing Dave! He is around 3-4 years old he is a very friendly and cheeky young man. He was found at a roadside unable to stand let alone walk due to an infection in all his feet and toenails so long they curled round his paws. JAWT took him into foster care and straight to the vet. After some tests it was discovered he has an auto immune disease that requires daily medication, which JAWT supply, to keep it under control.
Dave is doing very well on his meds and thriving in his foster home. He now has no issue walking on smooth surfaces and grass. He could potentially live with a laid back female but would need repeated introductions. No young children and not cat tested.
Dave will require a home with owners who work part time or are able to pop home during their lunch break.
Could you provide Dave with a forever home full of love and help him forget his neglect. For full details on his condition and requirements please get in touch.
JAWT 955 Teddy
Introducing Teddy! This love bug is 4 years old and based in Halifax. He seeks a new home due to no fault of his own, purely down to his owners looking to concentrate on family needs. Teddy is very playful and loving, he enjoys being groomed and loves loves loves a good fuss.
No issues around food or toys, just a playful big boy who has good social skills. He has decent basic training and would benefit from an owner willing to keep on top of this. No cats or young kids due to his boisterous nature, could potentially live with a female canine companion pending responsible introductions.
For further 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 974 - Breeze
Introducing Breeze! She is a beautiful young girl who has just turned 3 years old and in a rescue centre in Malvern, we are advertising on their behalf. Breeze seeks a home through no fault of her own, she was handed in by owners who had bought her a puppy but she showed jealousy towards a new born baby so was given up.
She loves people, loves to play with toys and is a happy confident girl. She met another dog when being assessed and was happy to be around it. She may be able to share with a well mannered male.
No young children please though, we need to find a forever home. For more information 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.

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!
