Kinako's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Kinako's Story...
This sweet and lovable girl is the perfect companion for an adult-only household. She is always thrilled to greet you and uses her mouth to gently say, “Hello!” or “Please pet me and give me love”.

Though Kinako only has one eye, she doesn’t miss a beat and uses her other keen senses to make up for her slight disability. She is very loyal and attentive and loves to be close to her family.

At about 7 years of age, Kinako is the perfect age for someone that doesn’t want to deal with raising a puppy, but wants a vivacious dog. She's active, playful and energetic. If you provide a solid foundation of leadership, quality exercise and mental stimulation, you will be rewarded with a well balanced companion. Kinako would be a great addition to a home with someone with previous Akita experience and knows what it takes to guide and lead them with a firm yet gentle hand.

Kinako can be particular about other dogs, so slow, gradual introductions may be needed if you already have a resident dog. She is currently sharing her foster home with two other dogs, but is not a good candidate for homes with small dogs or cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kinako, 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.
