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 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 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 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!
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!
