Keenu's Story...
Acquired: 8.2.16
Adopted: AVAILABLE

Keenu's story:

Keenu is an adult (born 11.12.12) female, spayed, long coat Akita. She us heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, on flea/heartworm prevention, house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.

Keenu comes to us after her family lost their home in foreclosure. She came to us and her senior Malamute sister, Kona, went to Malamute rescue. Keenu is a very sweet, low-key girl who is good with other dogs and is able to go to doggy daycare. She would do well in a home with the right mellow male. She has never lived as an only dog, so we're not sure how she would feel about that.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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