Mack's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mack's Story...
Mack is a magnificent, athletic, agile, beautifully-trained, well-socialized, and healthy, 120-pound, three-year-old, purebred male Akita looking for a loving home. Mack grew up in a home with small children, and a Rottweiler, and gets along with them beautifully. Unfortunately his human got a new job where he travels 90% of the time and can no longer give his dogs the attention they deserve. So, Mack is looking for a home where someone will adore him, has time for daily exercise, and weekly brushing of his plush coat. Mack is housebroken, good other dogs (when properly introduced). He also loves to swim, and even gives kisses. He knows the commands sit, stay and paw, and takes treats incredibly gently from your fingers. Mack loves to play fetch with a softball, deflated basketball or soccer ball. He is looking for a strong handler who is accustomed to large dogs. Mack is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and on preventative. His adoption fee is $250. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact Pete at or 708-586-9554.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mack, 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.
