JAWT 1075 - Riley
Riley is 7 weeks old now and came in to JAWT care at an early age with her mum Chika, sister and brother. Her mum is an Akita and her dad is a Japanese Akita Inu.
Riley is the cuddly one out of the trio and she is gaining confidence as the days roll by. Riley is currently living with children, cats and dogs and thriving.
She can be homed with a neutered male and preference will be given to a home with other animals and children. Riley will need to attend puppy classes and we would ideally like an experienced owner to ensure a well balanced pup matures perfectly.
Applications are being taken, home check and adoption fee applies.
JAWT 956 - Kauto
Introducing Kauto! This 5 year old beauty is based in the midlands and seeking a home through no fault of his own.
He cannot be homed with other dogs, cats or young children. Kauto is a well mannered boy but would do well with further obedience training and lead work. He welcomed strangers in to his home and was happy to be fussed.
Kauto would benefit from a new owner with experience of large breed dogs. Our assessor said if they didn't have their own Akitas they would have him!
Do you have the time and room Kauto needs? Please get in touch!
JAWT 1065 - Oscar
This absolutely stunning boy of 18 months old has found himself in rescue through no fault of his own in the London area.
Oscar has had 2 homes already that have not worked out so it is imperative next time round is forever.
He is a very friendly and described as soft and playful by any staff who work with him. He has lovely, fun personality and we would love to find him a forever home where this could flourish.
He does not seem overly bothered by other dogs, but would be best placed as the only pet in the home with dog savvy children over the age of 12.
Please get in touch for more information.
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 1067 - Gibbs
We believe Gibbs to be only around a year old.
He was formerly known as Gordon, named in the pound from Thomas the Tank Engine, as he was found wandering on railway lines.
A new name means a new start! Gibbs is good with other dogs, so if you have a well mannered female and looking for an addition please get in touch.
Gibbs has not had a good start and is still quite nervy, despite a loving personality. He needs a calm home to help him relax and develop. If that is you, 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!
