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 1010 - Copper Selkirk
Copper is a gorgeous boy of 5 years old who is currently living in Selkirk Scotland. He is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.Having previously lived with other dogs and children he could potentially do so again after introductions, older dog savvy kids would be preferable.
Our assessor found Copper to be a very friendly bouncy boy, who is full of fun. Copper would prefer that there's no small animals at home. He has limited training so will need someone committed to continuing this with him, we would like a home with large breed experience.
JAWT 978 - Bow
Introducing Bow! She is a gorgeous young girl of 4 years old based in Bristol.
Bow needs a new home through no fault of her own. She is a real live wire desperate to give out kisses and have fuss. She behaves like a big puppy most of the time. Bow currently lives with a toddler and is very tolerant of her. She had been living with a small female dog recently but has reacted so may best on her own or with a laid back neutered male pending careful introductions.
Bow is a lovely friendly and easy going girl - she does however required some lead training so a new owner would need to be committed to this and to set up a new exercise regime.
When our assessor attempted to leave, Bow flipped on to her back for tummy rubs in true Akita fashion. This girl has been described as "bomb proof". If you have room in your heart for a lovely natured girl, 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 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.
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!
