DeNiro's Story...
M, 3 Years, Akita Mix, 60 lbs.

Hi all! Are you one of those “the glass is half-full” beings? Well, I am too! No matter what, I tend to look on the bright side of things. I was left to starve by the side of the road, was taken in by a vet who fed me but didn’t address my medical needs, and then I arrived at Maxfund-20 lbs. underweight and needing medical attention. My skin was in horrible shape and it was found I was hypothyroid, but boy, you ought to see me now! I am dashingly handsome, always loving, well mannered, and the most loyal pal you’ll ever meet…

Despite my neglectful care previous to MaxFund, I remain a dog with wonderful character! I'm extremely friendly, affectionate, and can just go with the flow. Whether you want to race and play or just sit and cuddle, I’m your dog! I absolutely ADORE everyone and everything. I get along perfectly with other dogs, cats, and kids. You know what they say, the more the merrier!

I’ve been in a foster home for about a month and a half now with three other dogs and three cats (Boy, talk about sharing!) and am getting along just fine. I’m house-trained and I love to race and play in the backyard or go for rides in the car (I even learned to open the window!), but I really want a forever home where I can stay forever with a true family.

I am the epitome of a "diamond in the rough!" and I want to meet you! I may take a little time to be ready for a full adoption because I’m getting a little attached but like I said I’m still looking for my forever home! Do you want to meet me too? Contact Nancy and Bri You certainly will NOT be disappointed!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
