Ruby's Story...
We love our big girls here at BEAR and Ruby is just that! Ruby has come into rescue from Louisville, KY as a stray. You guessed it, she was never reclaimed. When found Ruby had some scars that tell us she did not have an easy life. Heavy fly strike to her ears and scars on the outside of her back legs makes us think she spent a good amount of time chained up and being bred. Despite what Ruby has gone through, she remains trusting of humans. Dogs never cease to amaze us.

We feel Ruby will need a home with breed experience and a fenced-in yard. It is possible Ruby can get along with the right male dog so a meet and greet will be needed. Children should be 12 and older and know how to respect the Akita breed. Please NO CATS, no small dogs for Ruby.

Currently Ruby is very strong on leash and will need some more time and work which we are giving her. Don't you just love those freckles?!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, 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.
