Matheo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Matheo's Story...
Matheo is a two-year-old large & loyal male Akita who was dumped at a NYC shelter by his heartless owner. All Matheo wanted to do was go home once at the shelter and with good reason, the chances of a large male Akita making it out of a full city pound is slim to none. ARWNY was called in to help Matheo at the 11th hour and we are glad we pulled out all of the stops for this Akita. In the matter of weeks, loyal Matheo found the courage to move on past being dumped and ARWNY started to look for a new home for Matheo, which was found! Off Matheo went to live a happy full life so we hoped! But sadly Matheo's plans did not work out this way. Matheo was returned to us a year later due to no fault of his own when his owner had to take in a family member who was not a dog person. Once again, loyal Matheo is now looking for a new home. Could that home be yours? Matheo will need an experienced Akita owner. This is a big boy, who knows some basic commands, is house broken, non destructive, quiet, and mannerly. Matheo is a very loyal and calm boy who loves to roll on his back in between doing donuts in the yard and acting silly. Matheo is tolerant of other female dogs but has never lived with one so it best he be an only pet. Please no cats or small children for Matheo as due to his size and strength he could easily knock over small children. All this Akita wants is a forever home where he can be loved and give his undying loyalty to his family. Is that family yours? Matheo is neutered and as with all of our Akitas, he is fully vetted and ready to go to his new home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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