About my Behaviour:

I came from a literal dump, but I've been told my life is only going to get better and better. Right now it feels like I am living in a castle! I am doing much better in my foster home, but still working on crate training and my separation anxiety. I love people so much, I will need to live with a family where someone is home with me or can take me to work. I also enjoy the company of dogs and it would be necessary that there is a doggy friend in my new home. I love to be outside, especially with you, and I enjoy going out for walks. So if you are looking for dog who loves the outdoor life as much as you do, then look no further then me!

How’s my Health?

I am neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on my vaccinations. When I was found I had an injury to my leg, but my splint is off and I am healing well. I am also blind in my left eye - this is likely a deformity as this eye is much smaller than the other one. My right eye is also showing some signs of degenerative eye disease and there is the possibility when I get older that I could lose my eyesight.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chinook, a Edmonton Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Akita for sale in Edmonton, or seeking a Akita dog from a breeder in Edmonton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Edmonton 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 Edmonton 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 Edmonton paves the way for another one to be saved.
