Hi, my name is Leigh, and I am a 6-year-old purebred Akita. I am very friendly and well mannered, but like most Akitas, I'm not always a fan of new situations. So, when I first meet new people, I might act a bit shy, but give me just a few minutes, and I'll be friendly and waggy.

I also have a medical condition called "VKH" which is a fancy name for an auto-immune disease. Like many autoimmune diseases, they can be managed with a healthy lifestyle. I'm not taking any special medications and I don't require special food, just, of course, a good, high-quality food.

I might look a little different, but I'm truly a special soul. I'd love to be able to show you just how special I am. If you have a big heart and would like to learn more about me, please email: angels@akitaangels.org

About Akita Angels

About Our Rescue Group...

We have designed and implemented a more proactive approach to rescue by working first to keep the dog in the home. We believe that begins with adopters knowing as much as they can about a dog's breed and characteristics before they adopt. We also provide unlimited, no cost support to families with the goal of creating a better relationship between the family and the dog, and help keep the dog in the home.

Our Adoption Process...

We want a successful, lifelong match between you and your new pet. We carefully evaluate each animal in our care, and, carefully screen each adopter to ensure there is a fit. We require any potential adopters to first complete an Adoption Application and go through a background, home, and reference check. All adopters are then required to sign an Adoption Agreement.
