Kia's Story...
If you're looking for that perfect match, a dog to be the love of your life that will only have eyes for you... then meet Kia!

Kia is a 5-year old Akita that was surrendered to our shelter in May 2010 because her owner could no longer care for her. She has been an indoor dog with outdoor privileges and she is house trained.

Kia is a very mild-mannered girl that is never destructive when left alone and just wants to do right by her people. Akitas are loyal to the end and never want to leave your side. Kia is no different, but she really has to get to know you first. She's friendly with all strangers and even greets new people with an excited hop and sweeping tail wag. As friendly as she is with strangers, all she really wants is a strong bond with someone that will last a lifetime.

Kia has lived with children and does very well with them. She's gentle, easy going and sweet. She also does very well with other dogs and would love to have some playmates, but living full-time with other dogs isn't going to work for her. She doesn't always like to share her food with canine friends, so she should be an only dog; although as stated before, she would LOVE to have some playmates. Kia didn't live with cats and shows some interest in chasing them. She could probably live with savvy cats that won't run, because when our savvy shelter cat swatted at her, she wanted nothing to do with him! Kia is definitely best friend material with a great personality and always kind words for strangers.

Kia is healthy, but has been diagnosed with a thyroid imbalance; a common issue with large breed dogs like Akitas and it's easily treated with an inexpensive, small pill daily. Our onsite veterinarian would be happy to talk with potential homes about her condition. Kia is already spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Her Animal ID is 10543293 and the adoption fee is $75.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kia, 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.
