My story

Gloria was quite the favorite at the shelter.  The employees would take her out of her run and have her keep company with them in their offices. Although her owners said she went through a fence to go after a neighbor's dog, she ignored the other dogs in the shelter as she was being led past them, and when she was in the play yard, ignored dogs outside the play yard.  She may just not have liked the dog who lived next door.  She is crate trained, knows how to sit and give her paw. She rides well in a car.  Our kennel owner loves her and says she is very sweet and easy to care for.  She exhibited no aggression toward other dogs at the kennel so far.

More about this rescue

Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic Coast, Inc. (ARMAC), founded in 1984, is one of the oldest Akita rescues in the United States. ARMAC is run solely by volunteers and all funding comes from private donations for the general public. ARMAC fulfills a wide variety of Akita needs in the greater Washington DC area. It educates and offers support to Akita owners, not only those who adopt from ARMAC, but all Akita owners regardless of where they got their Akita. But most importantly, ARMAC saves the lives of Akitas that would otherwise be euthanized in area shelters. All of ARMAC's fostered Akitas are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, tattooed and temperament evaluated prior to adoption. Potential adopters are screened carefully and thoroughly to ensure there is a perfect match between family and Akita. ARMAC's assistance doesn't stop at adoption. ARMAC offers support to its adoptive families throughout the lifetime of their Akita. ARMAC's goal is to avoid Akitas ever being given-up in the first place by educating the public about the breed, its history, and the many challenges that Akita ownership brings with it.
