Some of our Akitas currently looking for new homes.

A new home for Kobe

KobeOn the 22nd of December the trust received a call from the Yorkshire Animal Ambulance service advising that they'd been made guardians for a 4 month old male Akita who had been signed over to a local vets.

He ended up with the YAA as when the vets contacted the local pound they were advised that due to the fact they were full any and all dogs being taken there were being PTS, being responsible vets and not wishing to see a perfectly healthy young boy PTS through no fault of his own they contacted the YAA.

Thanks to the contacts made between the trust and other rescue and welfare organisations, a phone call was received by our treasurer asking if the JAWT could help rehome him.

He was assessed and passed with flying colours showing all the traits of a well brought up and happy young puppy and being described by the assessor as completely adorable!

It doesn't typically take long to rehome a dog of this age, there are always many people looking to take on a puppy, but that actually makes our job that bit harder as we have to be extra careful to ensure that we find them the right home.

Thankfully, due to the applications we received earlier in the year when we had a litter of 5 puppies to rehome, we had a list of people that were already home checked and suitable to take this young boy on and one couple sprung straight to mind!

The couple in question had rehomed one of the previous litter and were looking for a play friend for her, add to that the fact that the couple were infact local area reps for the trust and decision was easy, we knew he'd have a great home and be brought up correctly.

And so it was on the 28t of December and with xmas behind us that a visit was made to meet Kobe with his new sister to see how they got along, as was expected all they wanted to do was play and so after many hours of walking and playing together they were put in the car and taken home.

If you'd like to keep up to date with Kobe's progress in his new home keep an eye on the forum where there are bound to be many pictures and tales posted of his progress and playtime with his new sister.

We'd like to thank the vet for seeking out an alternative to Kobe being PTS and to Suzanne from the Yorkshire Animal Ambulance for not only contacting us about him but also for taking him in and giving him a secure and loving home over the xmas period.
