Tora's Story...
When Tora was first found stray by the Gilmer, TX Sheriff she was pretty much a goner according to the vet that took her in. Tora only weighted 42 pounds after being starved, she was covered in open sores due to sarcoptic mange, was heart worm positive, infested with a slew of internal parasites as well as papiloma virus that ran down the inside of her throat. Yes she pretty much looked death in the eyes. But this little girl was not about to give up. Like a bull (hence her name) she fought back and beat the odds. After two long months in the hospital, Tora now has a clean bill of health. Her fur is growing back in and she is gaining weight. She has shown us to be a happy, bouncy little gal with a zest for life.
We feel Tora should go to a home with a fenced yard and be an only pet. She will need a family that is active and has lots of doggie toys, oh and who loves to play! Children should be over the age of ten and know how to respect the Akita breed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tora, a Toms River Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Akita for sale in Toms River, or seeking a Akita dog from a breeder in Toms River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toms River already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toms River breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Akita breeders who help with Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toms River paves the way for another one to be saved.
