JAWT 1064 - Gucci
This stunning little lady of 2 years old has found herself in rescue in London through no fault of her own.
Although she doesn`t seem to mind other dogs, she would be best suited in a home with no other pets. She could live with dog savvy children over the age of 12.
Gucci is described as very typical of the breed and we would prefer an owner with some experience. If that could be you, please get in touch
JAWT 935 - Oscar
Introducing Oscar! He is a handsome chap of 3 years old based in the Midlands. He seeks a new home through no fault of his own, all down to a change in his owners working hours meaning he is left at home for long periods on his own.
He has a good level of training and lives with older children at the moment so could make a new family addition.
Oscar may be able to live with a well mannered spayed female pending successful introductions. He will benefit from an experienced owner willing to keep up with training and exercise. Could you offer Oscar the home he deserves? Please get in touch for more information.
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 is reserved when she first meets new people and will need an experienced owner willing to meet her several times to form a bond. She has basic obedience and 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. Star will need an adopter who is happy to continue with Star's socialising and training. 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 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!
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!
