Facts about Mason

  • Breed: Akita
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
Mason was owner surrendered to Chesapeake Animal Services because his family said they could no longer afford to care for him.

Mason just turned 4 years old (born 5-13-10), is neutered, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. Animal control said that he had previously lived with a Miniature Pinscher, but we feel that he would be best in a home without dogs, cats, or kids. He weighed in at 122 lbs, and we are working on getting him back to a healthy weight. Even when he is in shape, he will be a big boy!

About Rakki-Inu Akita Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Rakki-Inu (pronounced "Rocky E-new) is a breed specific rescue, dealing only with pure bred Akitas. We are a small Akita rescue located in Virginia Beach, VA. We are a federal non-profit corporation, with 501(c)(3) designation, dedicated to helping Akitas in need. We generally serve Virginia, North Carolina, and parts of South Carolina, but we work where the Akitas need us to! We offer adoptable dogs, rescue, education, and support to Akita owners and adopters nation wide. We are recognized by the Akita Club of America (ACA) and abide by their Code of Ethics.

It is our goal to help Akitas in need, educated the public about this wonderful breed, and support Akita owners with any problems they may be having. We primary pull our Akitas from shelters, and we will help an owner re-home an Akita, if necessary, by courtesy listing on our site, assisting with screening applicants, and providing advice on training and behavioral issues.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our available orphans can also be found on our website, Facebook, and on Some of them are available to meet in person at Fur Frenzy Pet Spa, located in the Regency Hilltop Shopping Center, 1952 Laskin Road, Suite 505, Virginia Beach, VA 23454. We will occasionally attend adoption events in the Hampton Roads area; for the most up-to-date information about all our orphans and when/where you can meet them, check our Facebook page often!

Our Adoption Process...

We require anyone interested in one of our orphans fill out an application. If that is approved, we will do a home inspection and then have the whole family, including any dogs, come meet the dog(s) they are interested in. We ask an adoption donation of $350; this helps defer the costs of veterinary care and daily upkeep of our orphans. We are non-profit and all funds come from public donations.
