JAWT 1118 - Anya
Anya is a young girl who found herself in a pound with nobody to claim her. Anya was saved by a very kind hearted lady and is currently in boarding kennels in the North East of England. She is full of character AND energy so would suit somebody committed to long walks, socialising and willing to put in the time and effort to bring out the best in her.
Anya is a loving girl who enjoys toys, treats and LOVES a bone! She has so much to give and you really need to meet her to understand just what a perfect girl she is. For more information please get in touch. We would love to see Anya in a home. She may be able to live with a male dog pending introductions as she has taken a shine to one of her cell mates.
Did we mention her energy? If you would like to share your life with this bundle of love and fun then please step forward, she is sure to impress.
JAWT 1091 Vance
This beautiful boy found himself in danger in the pound until moving under JAWT care to kennels based near Blackpool.
He is around 2 - 3 years old we estimate and a spirited character. Vance enjoys his walks and would love somebody with an outdoors lifestyle. He has met female dogs behind the kennel exteriors and been ok so could potentially live with a relaxed female companion pending successful meetings.
Breed experience is an absolute must for Vance.
For further information please get in touch.
JAWT 1116 Koda
He is 6 years old and based in Yorkshire. He is a real gentleman and a well mannered boy. He prefers the company of females but will warm to men once given time. He currently lives with JAWT 1117 Suki and we would love for them to be homed together if possible as they have always known each other.
Koda has been around young children but never lived with them 24/7 so dog savvy children only please. Koda is seeking a new home sadly due to personal issues of his owner. It is a very sad and much thought out decision but all for the best for the dogs.
For further information, 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 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.
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!
