Big Boy's Story...
Big Boy was found abandoned in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, PA and taken to animal control where he was not feeling the love after being dumped by his owner and never reclaimed.
B.B. is a big powerful guy, who knows how to sit for his cookies and take them gently. This fellow is strong on leash, housebroken, well mannered, and just a big baby with a silly side to him.
Big Boy will need an experienced breed owner as he will need a bit of time to bond and trust. We can tell by his behavior in the kennel this boy was at one time a very much cared for house dog as he struggles with kennel life. Once he bonds he is a amazing, happy big boy who will greet you after a long day at work with his silly antics. He is a head tilter! We feel B.B. would do best as an only pet and in an adult-only home due to his size and power.

If you are interested in providing this Akita with a forever home please go to our website at: and fill out our online adoption application for B.B.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Big Boy, 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.
