Max's Story...
Max is a beautiful young male Pinto Akita approximately 2 years old. Max was a product of a boyfriend/girlfriend split and he was dumped and left tied to a tree for a month. Max had no shelter, no bed, dirty water, and little food. The neighbor's to Max often brought him food, clean water, and showed him the only attention he received. Max would often get loose, running onto a busy highway, or sneak off to play with the neighbor's Beagles. Max is a very sweet dog, and doesn't seem to know a stranger. Max is going to need work on basic commands, and walking on a leash. He seems to be house trained, going to the door, spinning in circles, and barking. He refused to have an accident in the house. Max is a very smart Akita and is going to need some TLC due to being tied up for so long. This boy has no other dog aggression shown and loves all humans of all ages. Max is large, and loves to play so he would be suitable for children 10 and up. If you have a place for this big, lovable goofy boy, please contact Deanna O'Brien at or 773 -792-1309

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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