Facts about Noire

  • Breed: Akita
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#:
Located in SAN JOSE CA

Tete Noire (Called Norrie by his close friends)  is a 7 to 8 year old Male Akita, Neutered. 98lbs. 

Noire was found wandering in San Jose California, and weighed in at around 71lbs. Most of his hair was gone, and he was suffering from severe mobility issues as well as malnourishment.  He was spotted by a Shiba Rescue, who sent out notices for him, but was never reclaimed. 

For the last 6 months, Noire has been living in a Foster Home, and gets along well with dogs, large and small. However, he is head shy, allowing only very close humans to pet his head, without snapping at them, and in one case where he was under severe stress, he bit a human who was touching his head. His reactions are such as though he was beaten or hurt by past owners.

So, only folks with deep commitment to training Noire, and patience with his issues will be considered. No first time Akita owners, and no children for this dog's new family.

He is currently on medicines to help him manage the stiffness in his back legs, and occasionally is prone to hot spots so he is fed limited ingredient foods to keep his allergies at bay. 

With the right human, this handsome and loving boy is very protective and playful. He can't really run, but he sure can walk, and he wants to walk right into a new forever home!
