Cooper's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this dog personally. Be sure to contact the foster or organization directly from the information listed below.

Hi, I’m Cooper – a 1.5 year old Akita mix. I’m pretty handsome, don’t you think? I’m a friendly guy. I like other dogs of all sizes and people too – I especially like men and boys. I like to go for walks and try not to pull on the leash. I also like car rides a lot. Oh yeah, and I am still a youngster, so I would like a family that will play with me. Tug-of-war, tennis balls, squeaky toys, - you name it, I’m up for it!

I already know how to “sit” for treats, and am working on “stay”. I am a quiet boy (not a barker), and I take treats gently from your hand. I’d make a great companion and a wonderful addition to an active family. Could it be yours?

Meet this pet at County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, 5480 Gaines Street, San Diego 92110. Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays. For more information, go to .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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