Nikita's Info...

I am purebred, a special needs pet, and in need of an experienced adopter.

Nikita's Story...
Nikita is the product of irresponsible breeding- there's no other way to say it. She's a wonderful dog, and she deserves much better than to be left at an animal shelter because she couldn't be sold. Nikita is a special girl- she's deaf, so she needs an adopter who will work with her with hand signals, and always keep her safe. She's active and super friendly; she was initially uncomfortable around dogs but doing better. Working with a trainer will be the way to go with this busy girl. She'll need tons of exercise, every day, to stimulate her mind and keep her from getting bored! We recommend a home with kids over 12, because she's a strong girl! Nikita is spayed/neutered.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nikita, 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.
