JAWT - 881 Star
Star is a gorgeous 3 year old girl based in Greenock, she's seeking a new home through no fault of her own. Star can be a little excitable on first introductions but settles quickly to give special Kita cuddles. She has basic obedience though is very attentive and keen to please, our assessor reports that Star quickly picked up on his requests was sitting and laying on command and even learned to leave treats in the short time he spent with her. She cannot live with other dogs or cats and is not used to children. Star is a very affectionate girl with lots of love to give.
If Star is the girl to fill an Akita shaped hole in your heart please get in touch for more info.
JAWT 787 - Frodo
This young man is an Akita cross of about 17 months old and based in foster in Liverpool. Frodo has a sad tale to tell as he had to have his tail removed when in a rescue centre after chewing it and infecting it. He was just so stressed out in kennels.
He gets on with other dogs in foster and just loves attention. He is a happy bouncy young boy and we hope somebody special is going to come forward for him. Frodo does have some food aggression so any new owner would need to be aware of this. He is a small lad with a big personality.
If Frodo is the boy for you then please get in touch.

JAWT 907 - Roan
Introducing Roan! This handsome boy is 3 years old and currently in Doncaster. He is being rehomed through no fault of his own, his owners cannot dedicate the time they feel he deserves.
He currently lives with a toddler so could potentially make an ideal family pet again. Best to be the only pet in the household though.
Roan has basic manners, and happy to meet new people sharing out kisses. He would benefit from a structured training routine so we are looking for somebody with the experience and time to offer him what he needs.
If you would like more information on Roan, 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!
