JAWT 960 - Bess
Introducing Bess! She is a beautiful young lady in rescue kennels in Connemara, Ireland. She arrived in the rescue with pups, who have now all gone off to forever homes, leaving their mum behind. She gets on with other dogs and is a real sweetheart of a girl.
Bess was probably too young to have had pups herself but coped well. Spayed and looking for a new home now. She is a playful, affectionate and cheeky girl with a great sense of humour.
No cats, small pets or very young children please.
For more information please get in touch.
JAWT 984 - Kato
Introducing Kato! This handsome chap was a stray and is now in kennels in Hull. He is believed to be around 7 or 8 years old and although seems to be ok with other calm dogs, he may be best suited to being the only dog in the household.
He has basic training and wont snatch at treats. Will walk okay on his lead and enjoys a walk.
Kato would like a calm house to relax in, with no children as we have no history on him. He would make a super companion for somebody with an easy lifestyle. For more information please get in touch.
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 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.
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!
