Hi everyone, my name is Akita

Let me tell you a little about myself and what type of home would be best for me.

My favourite game in the world is fetch, so I would love a home with access to a large and secure backyard that I would be able to run freely within. I also love going on long walks, as I am able to get out excess energy, as well as keep my mind busy with all of the different sights and sounds.

I am also incredibly tactile, and I just adore people! So a home where I can be inside and lap up all the love my new owners can provide would be amazing!

I haven’t had much experience with how to appropriately interact with other canines, so I will need to go to a home with someone willing to help me build upon my skills surrounding this. This means that I will be best as the only animal in the home. Due to my exuberant nature, it would be unsuitable for me to live in a home with children, as I get easily distracted and cannot calm myself.

It would be wonderful if I go to a new home in a non-built up area, so my owner and I will be able to work on building a strong engaging relationship, which will help me hugely on our training journey.

If I seem like the perfect pup for your lifestyle, please fill out an expression of interest form below.

Adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
