JAWT 1098 - Sasha
She is approximately 10 years young and currently in foster in the Midlands after being saved from the pound where she was not in the best of health. Thanks to her foster home she has come on leaps and bounds!
Sasha currently has a clean bill of health from the vets and is now looking for her pet free forever home. She will not be placed with other pets as she has been aggressive towards other dogs so would prefer to be the only pet in the home and older dog savvy children only as she is very bouncy despite her age!
Sasha is a loving friendly girl who is looking for somebody to share a sofa with, she is happy to snooze her days away and would be the perfect companion for somebody with experience of large breeds as she is very strong on the lead and as such will need somebody committed to continuing with the training currently being put in with her foster home.
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 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 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 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.
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!
