I am a male brown and black Akita and German Shepherd mix. I am about 3 YEARS old.
I completed a few weeks of obedience training and kicked butt in class!
I am very smart, I really like children and I would love to play ball with you. I have a strong bond with my people and would like to be an only dog in the household.
I will be incredibly loyal to my family.
PS: I'll tell you a secret - when I eat cookies, I slobber. YEP! Yes, I do. That's because I enjoy my cookies ?

About Rising Dove Rescue - NY Chapter

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption / Foster Policy

Animals rescued by Rising Dove Rescue undergo an examination by a local veterinarian, are cleared of any medical conditions, and are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered and mircochipped before being offered for foster or adoption. While we typically try to have a family in place for any rescued pet, there are times where a temporary boarding facility may be used while an appropriate setting is found or if pending transportation.

All members of the family must be present in order to foster/adopt. Rising Dove Rescue wants to make sure the pet is a good fit for everyone in the household.
If planning to foster/adopt a pet when there is an existing pet in the household, Rising Dove Rescue will ascertain whether the animals will be able to coexist in the household, and does their best to make sure that animals are paired appropriately and safely for all.
Applicants must be 21 years or older to adopt. Rising Dove Rescue will conduct background and reference checks for all applicants.
Applicants must provide proof of residence and when residing in rental property or condominium setting, must provide by-laws or lease agreement outlining policies for pet ownership.
Applicants must be willing to allow Rising Dove Rescue to make follow-up visits, either in person by a representative or by telephone.
Adopters are informed that in the event they are unable to keep the pet or offer it proper care, the pet must FIRST be offered back to Rising Dove Rescue before alternate arrangements are made.
Applications must be completed and approved prior to adopting an animal. Applications must include references and applicants must submit to a home check. Applicants and applications are reviewed by all partners of Rising Dove Rescue.
If approved, an applicant must sign a contract (the application) to adopt an animal which outlines the responsibilities of the adopter. If there is any addendum, the applicant will follow the recommendations on the addendum.
Our primary goal is to place animals in need and work within the United States with area rescue partners to do so.
