"Papa" is one of the sweetest Akitas we have ever had in rescue and has had a full health check up. Despite his being a senior, he is in excellent health, is at a healthy weight, and despite all the poking and prodding that goes on at the vet's office, he never once complained or had to be muzzled. He was neutered years ago and is UTD with all vaccinations, has a current rabies certificate, and is microchipped.
Papa has an excellent disposition and is good around people of all ages. Since entering rescue, he was immediately and easily integrated with other dogs (males and females) and we think he would greatly enjoy the company of another dog who is of a similar age group or is mellow, and always, preferably female. Papa is an old, gentle soul and we think he'd prefer the company of a human who is retired, semi-retired, works from home, works part time, etc.
