Facts about Makoto

  • Breed: Akita
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#:

My perfect day would be to play with the teenagers, go for a walk, and cuddle up with a favorite toy for a nap.  Makoto is very obedient with commands, pampers his toys, and once bonded, likes hugs.  He is great with baths, friendly with toys, and has no food aggression. VERY affectionate and submissive to his favorite people. He should be an only dog, and becomes like your loving child when he trusts you. Loves to give kisses, rolls over for belly rubs, and loves to play fetch with a ball. Has the great Akita traits of loyalty and protecting his family.   He is adventurous and loves exploring with his owner.  He would love hiking, and exploring the outdoors on leash. Definitely NO kids, as he is reactive with small children. To adopt him, he needs you to visit and interact a few times so that he learns to trust you since new people are strangers to him. Many people have wanted to adopt him because of his classic Akita appearance; he looks like the cover of a book on Akitas. But, so far no one has been willing or able to put in the time meeting with him that he needs to bond. If you don't require instant gratification and are willing to work towards the extremely worthwhile goal of having Makoto as your best friend, maybe you will be the one! Meet him at #AkitaRanch 28930 Ellis Ave, Romoland, CA (open 10-5 7days) or email for adoption information..
