Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Akita is a sensitive girl who can be shy and fearful with new people. It doesn't take long to get into her good graces, however. Once you do she's the sweetest, happiest, most fun-loving dog. Born in 2011, she's silly, playful and active. Akita has a tendency to guard her food, and she does not do well with cats. She currently lives as a single dog at the sanctuary, and that's what seems to make her happiest. Do you have room in your heart for a shy, sweet and sensitive girl? If so, Akita would love to meet you.
