THIS DOG HAS BEEN COURTESY POSTED FOR A PRIVATE PARTY.  HE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN MISSOULA MONTANA. PLEASE CONTACT peblakeslee8@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting him.

Our dog, Hiro, is a 10-year-old Akita mix (1/2 Akita, 1/4 Rottweiler, 1/4 Weimeraner). We have had him for 9 years and we are re-homing him because, despite our training efforts, he is aggressive with our 3-year-old granddaughter. She is having a sibling soon and they are in our home frequently. He has given warnings with baring of teeth and growling, no biting.

 
We rescued him from a no-kill shelter in Portland, OR. 9 years ago where we lived until one month ago (we now live in Missoula, MT). He required about 2 years of training which has made him a very well-behaved and loving dog. It is excruciating to give him away, but we know of no other good answer because now that we know he isn't 'getting over' the aggression, we can't, in good conscience have him near our grandchildren. We consulted our obedience trainer, but she said to try a couple of things, but not to expect him to change at 10 years old.
 
He has some mid-back issues that are minimal if we don't allow a lot of jumping (even though he's not a jumper) or hikes with much elevation. He has a sensitive stomach but does great if he eats only his appropriate kibble. We have some pain meds which are rarely necessary for back pain. He is current on all his immunizations, is getting Frontline for fleas/ticks, and is neutered 
 
He is fun, sweet, loyal, 'talks' to you when he's about to eat, everyone loves him, loves to go in the car. He sits, stays, waits, heels, plays 'find it', comes almost always, does not retrieve very well. He plays with a chewy toy for a little while, but is not a super high

His best friend was our cat until the time we moved. He would not be good with just any cat; however, he may adapt to a cat over time. He gets along with other dogs, but if there is another dominant male, he will posture and growl. He has never bit pets or people.
