Yuukan's Info...

I am purebred.

Yuukan's Story...
Yuukan's situation was very urgent, and unfortunately due to health related challenges in his
human family, they could no longer keep him. He was taken to the shelter in hopes that
someone would adopt him. Thankfully a concerned and compassionate family member who
knows him, learned of his situation and went straight to the shelter to get him out.

Yuukan is being temporarily cared for in Rocklin, CA, however cannot remain there, so we
are still looking for Yuukan's forever home. His new guardian says he is a mellow boy, very
people oriented and just loves to lounge around after a short walk about the neighborhood!
Also it appears as though his chronic sneezing has subsided since being in his new
environment. It's suspected that pollens in his former home were possibly causing some
allergic reaction. He seems to be doing great now, much to his relief!

Here's what his current guardian says about Yuukan since he's been with her:
"When you speak to Yuukan, he moves his head from side to side as if he understands every
word you're saying. I often times ask him, Yuukan how's your day going? And he'll cock his
head from side to side!" Yuukan has his fans, as even the neighbors love to visit with him!

If you would like an easy going, non-demanding companion who is happy to hang out and
share his life with you, perhaps Yuukan is the Akita for you. He's a beautiful boy with a
go-with-the-flow attitude. Yuukan would do best in a home without other dogs or cats, as he
hasn't lived with either.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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