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 1105 - Phantom
This hunk was scheduled to be killed in a pound. Another abandoned Akita. JAWT said no.
He is an absolute sweetheart of a dog, very affectionate and a well mannered boy. He is based in our safe kennels near Blackpool UK. No kids, cats etc as no history, but if you want a new best friend to love you forever, Phantom is your boy!
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 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!
JAWT 1107 - Ziggy
This hunk is around 3 years old and currently in foster care in Northern Ireland. Ziggy spent 2 months in a pound before being taken to safety the day David Bowie died, hence his fitting name.
Ziggy is a work in progress, he walks well on the lead, is obedient to those around him but is an exuberant lad who would be best suited to a home with older, dog savvy children. He may be able to live with a dog friendly female dog but that is being worked on.
He is a very friendly boy and will give back everything put in to him. He is neutered, vaxd and chipped.
Transport to the mainland can easily be arranged for the correct home.
No cats or small dogs.
Please get in touch if you are interested.
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!
