JAWT 1061 - KENZO
Kenzo is seeking a new home through no fault of his own and due purely to a change in his owners circumstances.
He Is a 4 year old boy currently living in Stirling Scotland.
Kenzo has been living the outdoor life with free roam of his garden which he shares with 2 Harris Hawks and is perfectly comfortable in his kennel.
He takes a little time to get used to strangers but soon settles. He is used to his own space so cannot be homed other animals and only older dog savvy children please.
Kenzo will need a new owner with large breed experience prepared to take the time to get to know him and work on his obedience training. He responds well to his current owner so time and patience will be important and we are sure anyone meeting him will see his potential.
If Kenzo is the boy for you please get in touch for more information.
JAWT 1128 - Kara
Kara was taken from a Yorkshire pound and moved to a foster home in East Kilbride, Scotland. We believe her to only be approximately 18 months old but having had a bad start in life she behaves maturely.
She is a friendly and affectionate girl who has proven to be fantastic with the children in her foster home. Although she is currently living with a male Akita, she may be better as the only dog in the home, or at least be able to have her own space.
If you could offer Kara a new home, please get in touch.
JAWT 117 Suki
She is 5 years young and based in Yorkshire. She currently lives with JAWT 1116 Koda and we would love to see them homed together but can be split if need to, although Suki has only ever known life with Koda.
Suki is the more adventurous of the two and can be a giddy big pup at times but still has a good level of training. She can be around dog savvy kids but NOT cats. Neutered males only please!
If you would like more information, please get in touch and we will be only to happy to help.
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 1108 - Zimba
This beautiful girl found herself in a pound in Northern Ireland through no fault of her own. She is now safe in rescue but still needs our support.
Zimba is a very friendly girl, of around 18 months old and adores human company, we will be finding out more as her true nature emerges but she is one happy little lady!
She could potentially live with a well mannered male, no cats or small children.
Transport to the mainland could be organised for the correct home. Please get in touch for more information.
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.

That since the trust was founded in 1998 it has helped over 1000 Akitas, both Japanese and American type, find new homes!
