JAWT 1031 - Tia
This beautiful young girl was in danger in a pound in the south. Her life was saved by a wonderful lady with kennels and she has now moved to Newcastle upon Tyne area with JAWT providing Rescue Back Up for her whilst kennelled.
She is a very friendly and loving girl, somebody has spent time with her to help create a well balanced young girl.
Tia could potentially live with a well mannered neutered male dog pending responsible introductions.
For more information, please get in touch.
JAWT 947 - Mya
Introducing Mya. She is 3 years old and currently lives in Nottingham. She seeks a home through no fault of her own, purely down to her owner now not having the time Mya deserves.
She is a friendly girl, initially guarded, but soon happy to be fussed and rolling over for tummy rubs. She cannot live with small dogs, but reportedly can be ok with big dogs, this was not proven at assessment. There is a toddler in the home but Mya is nervous around her so older children who are dog savvy only please.
She walks well on the lead and has no issues around toys or food, if Mya is the girl for you, please get in touch!
JAWT 1026 - Yoshi
Introducing Yoshi! She is an absolute sweetheart of a girl, saved from certain death in a pound due to being a stray, by JAWT.
She is around 7 or 8 years old and no history. It is clear from her time in our safe kennels in Blackpool that she has been bred from repeatedly, doesn't really know much about the outside world and not in good shape. We have run some blood tests, found her to have thyroid issues as suspected by our eagle eyed kennel owners and started her on medication.
JAWT would love to see this girl move to a home where we think she will be much happier. At the moment she is quite depressed, but getting better.
With a good home, we are confident she will go from strength to strength. She may be able to live with a well mannered neutered male, pending responsible introductions.
JAWT 999 - Alaska
Introducing Alaska! He is a stunning boy of only 4 years old looking to secure a home of his own. Alaska is in a rescue centre in the South and we are promoting him on their behalf.
Although he is well behaved when socialising with other dogs, the staff believe he would be happier being the only dog in the household, but could possibly live with a cat.
He is a well mannered boy with some basic training so we are looking for experienced owners who can continue with his training. Alaska will not be placed with children as he has no history. If you think you could offer this wonderful boy a home, please get in touch for more information.
JAWT 1027 - Ziva
Introducing Ziva! This little girl is an ex poundie, scheduled to be killed as a stray.
JAWT moved her to safe kennels in Blackpool where she continues to flourish. Ziva is around 10 months old, seems good with other dogs so could potentially live with a well mannered neutered male. She was good with the children in the home she spent the weekend awaiting her transport.
So a dog savvy kiddie household will be considered.
No cats or small furries, I have seen this girl in action if something moves! Ziva has a brilliant level of training and somebody will be very lucky to share their life and home with this young lady.
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!
