MEET AKI!! This sweet girl is about the best behaved pup you will ever meet! She loves people, is friendly and outgoing, and has an awesome disposition.
Aki is mild-mannered, easy going, with a contagious zest for life. She aims to please, and loves to play. She will do wonderfully in an active home where her humans enjoy walking, hiking, etc. Aki is very food-motivated, and would love to learn some new tricks and perhaps an agility course! Aki’s favorite things in the world include thunder storms, sun bathing, and watching Law and Order SVU.
Aki needs to be be an "only dog" and she does not do well with cats. She is GREAT with kids... but due to her size and exuberance, she is a good fit for a family with older children. Aki is a great protector of the home, and is very wary of strangers coming into her home. She will need a home that does not have a lot of visitors, OR an adopter that does not mind placing her in another room or her kennel when strangers come to the home.
NOTE: Since Aki does have some overprotective qualities, she will need an adopter that is comfortable with crating her/kenneling, or putting her into a separate room when visitors are over. She needs a low traffic home, where there are not a lot of strangers coming and going. She will not do well with new people in her home on a regular basis and needs an adopter that is o.k. with her being separated from newcomers when they come to visit.
Her foster mom will gladly watch her *for free* anytime you go on vacation!
