Bandit's Story...
Hello everyone - my name is Bandit. I have been at the shelter for many years. I am a purebred Akita and weigh about 115 lbs. I guess that scares some people. I am sure that most people misunderstand me, but I wish they would take the time to understand my bad circumstances. I was found just wandering around on the streets along the highway. I haven’t had a home in a really long time. I dug a hole on the side of the road for protection when I was found and brought to the shelter. I am really lonely here. I wish I could have a warm cozy home to call my own. I know basic commands and I love to get attention and praise. Sometimes the volunteers tell me how gorgeous I am and I really like that. They call me a big teddy bear too! I am pretty calm and enjoy leisurely walks, I wish I could do that more often. I would really like to have a fenced in back yard to relax and watch the birds fly by. Since I have been in the shelter for so long, I get scared of strangers sometimes. I would like to get to know you first before we go home together. My life has been a little depressing so I need to take it slow. I seem to like most pets especially females, but sometimes children scare me. If you have Akita experience that would be great for the both of us!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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