My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Valerian is an adult (born approx 4.1.17) neutered male Akita. He is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, on flea/heartworm prevention, house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.

Valerian was surrenderd to the shelter in Chesapeake, VA when the owner could no longer care for him. He had previously lived outside in a pen and was uncertain and stand off-ish when he first came to us, but he warmed up to a goofy, woo-ing, wiggle butt boy. He is just so sweet! Valerian would be fine in a home with children 12+ due to his high energy level and as an only pet.

Additional adoption info

We require anyone interested in one of our orphans fill out an application. If that is approved, we will do a home inspection and then have the whole family, including any dogs, come meet the dog(s) they are interested in. We ask an adoption donation of $350; this helps defer the costs of veterinary care and daily upkeep of our orphans. We are non-profit and all funds come from public donations.

Our available orphans can also be found on our website, Facebook, and on petfinder.com. We will occasionally attend adoption events in the Hampton Roads area; for the most up-to-date information about all our orphans and when/where you can meet them, check our social media often!

More about this rescue

Rakki-Inu (pronounced "Rocky E-new) is a breed specific rescue, dealing only with pure bred Akitas. We are a small Akita rescue located in Virginia Beach, VA. We are a federal non-profit corporation, with 501(c)(3) designation, dedicated to helping Akitas in need. We generally serve Virginia, North Carolina, and parts of South Carolina, but we work where the Akitas need us to! We offer adoptable dogs, rescue, education, and support to Akita owners and adopters nation wide. We are recognized by the Akita Club of America (ACA) and abide by their Code of Ethics.

It is our goal to help Akitas in need, educated the public about this wonderful breed, and support Akita owners with any problems they may be having. We primary pull our Akitas from shelters, and we will help an owner re-home an Akita, if necessary, by courtesy listing on our site, assisting with screening applicants, and providing advice on training and behavioral issues.
