JAWT 921 - Suki
Introducing Suki! She is a beautiful young lady of 12 months old currently living in Derbyshire. She is a typical friendly bouncy young Akita, inquisitive and playful. Suki seeks a new home though no fault of her own, purely down to a change in her owners circumstances.
Suki is used to children and could live with another well mannered neutered dog, she cannot live with cats.
For further information, please get in touch.
JAWT 970 - Rex
Introducing Rex! This beautiful young man is on foster in Ayrshire, Scotland. He has not had the best start in life but has bags of potential and just waiting for his forever home. He has basic commands and lots of energy. New owners must be committed to good exercise and carry out training routines.
Rex could possibly live with a well mannered female pending successful introductions. He is a lovely natured boy but would benefit from an experienced owner to teach him some manners. His foster mum would love to keep him but not in a position to do so. Rex has lived with children previously but is a boisterous boy so dog savvy older children only!
If you think you could offer Rex a forever home, please get in touch.
JAWT 973 - Mitzi
Introducing Mitzi! This little lady was in a pound and now moved to safety by JAWT and in foster care in the Stoke on Trent area. She is thought to be only around 7 months old and is little bit timid at first. She seems to have taken to her foster daddy immediately though! She has had a bath as was a bit grubby, hesitant at first but soon realised it was good fun!
Mitzi will continue to be assessed in the foster home and will be slowly introduced to the 3 resident Akitas. Watch this space for updates!
JAWT 971 - Sensai
Introducing Sensai! He is a beautiful boy of only 16 months old who finds himself in rescue through no fault of his own. He is currently in foster in the Midlands.
He is a playful boy with basic training but has not lived indoors so may need some assistance with potty training. He has met the female Akita in the foster home and seems to quite enjoy her company so we think a female companion of similar size may be best suited for him.
He will continue his assessment period and spend time with the family, including the children and we will update on his progress. Sensai is a happy boy and loves to meet new people. He has his own little quirks and breed traits so some experience of the breed is essential.
For more information on Sensai, please get in touch.
JAWT 953 Sapphire
Saffy is looking for a new home through no fault of her own.
She is a lovely bouncy 12 month old friendly girl based in Chester. She could possibly live with a well behaved neutered male but needs older dog savvy children only.
Sapphire has some decent basic training but could do with somebody who has plenty of time to spend with her due to separation issues. She currently lives with other dogs but would need to be introduced to a new companion. Sapphire is great with people, a typical giddy big pup!
Please get in touch for more information.
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!
