He is 8 years old and unfortunately needs a home due to his owners death.
Hooch is a happy boy, but would benefit from a home environment as he is not happy in kennels as an unknown situation. Hooch loves people and would love a family home with children old enough to respect dogs.
Please get in touch if you can offer a home to Hooch.
JAWT 953 Sapphire
Saffy is looking for a new home through no fault of her own.
She is a lovely bouncy 12 month old friendly girl based in Chester. She could possibly live with a well behaved neutered male but needs older dog savvy children only.
Sapphire has some decent basic training but could do with somebody who has plenty of time to spend with her due to separation issues. She currently lives with other dogs but would need to be introduced to a new companion. Sapphire is great with people, a typical giddy big pup!
Please get in touch for more information.
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 1101 - Saskia
This little beauty is part of the aftermath of dumped Christmas puppies.
She is based in Ireland and too young to have her passport etc organised, which is required to travel to the UK.
Thanks to a wonderful Akita owner, she was taken to safety and now in JAWT care in a fabulous foster home.
Saskia is available for adoption but will not be ready for the UK for around 3 weeks. Saskia would flourish in a home with a relaxed neutered male, she will not be placed with a female.
Applications are being taken now.
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.

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!
