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 1119 - Samo
Well now, what can we say about Samo? Lots! That`s what!
This beautiful, older gent was abandoned by his family and ended up in the pound.
He must have been so confused after dedicating his life to being a loyal, loving family pet. That is just exactly what he is, a big pet.
Samo is a true gentleman and a very well mannered, loveable boy who takes life in his stride. He was shown a life line by a true angel and is currently in boarding kennels in the North East of England.
Samo could potentially live with a well mannered female pending responsible introductions.
Foster or forever home will be welcome for this special boy. Could you offer Samo a little room in your heart and home? He would sure appreciate it! Please get in touch for further information.
JAWT 1108 - Zimba
This beautiful girl found herself in a pound in Northern Ireland through no fault of her own. She is now safe in rescue but still needs our support.
Zimba is a very friendly girl, of around 18 months old and adores human company, we will be finding out more as her true nature emerges but she is one happy little lady!
She could potentially live with a well mannered male, no cats or small children.
Transport to the mainland could be organised for the correct home. Please get in touch for more information.
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.
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!
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!
