My story

Sweet Bonded Sibling Akitas Need New Home

Hyde and Maura are gorgeous Akitas, brother and sister, who were recently rescued from a neglectful situation after Maura was found wandering the streets. Luckily, some kind people stepped in and rescued and reunited them both. They are approximately 8 years old and still have plenty of energy and love to take walks. 

The siblings are bonded and we would prefer not to separate them. They want to sleep and cuddle together and it’s heartwarming to see how much they love and depend on each other.

They love to ride in a car; they are house trained; and they walk well on the leash. It is clear that no one has cared for them in a very long time, yet they are friendly and sweet. 

They are currently being boarded at a vet and have not shown any sign of aggression either with humans or dogs. They are now up-to-date on their shots, chipped, spayed/neutered and the vet has treated their minor issues due to the neglect. Maura weighs approximately 75 pounds and Hyde is approximately 95 pounds.

Hyde and Maura really deserve a second shot at life in a home together. They are so sweet, smart and loving and are so excited to be back together.

If you think you have a home that has room for two larger dogs and can give them the love and attention they need, please contact The Labelle Foundation at:

More about this rescue

TikiHut Akita Rescue Association (TARA) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, animal welfare and education organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of orphaned Akitas and is located in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. Our group is comprised of volunteers, enthusiasts and foster homes. The members in our organization have come together because of the passion we share for the Akita breed. Our breed is respected and treated as royalty in their native Japan, but here in this country, so many of them sit alone in the local shelters, waiting to die. Each of our members (and their families), work tirelessly to save the many Akitas that end up in these shelters. In addition to finding new homes and families for these wonderful dogs, we also dedicate our efforts to educating the public about the breed, including but not limited to, the importance of spaying and neutering, proper nutrition, behavior and training information and the genetic issues plaguing our breed. Each Akita we bring into our program undergoes a thorough health exam, is spayed or neutered, brought up to date medically, and is worked with for basic obedience and socialization. We crate train all our pups and put them through basic puppy classes. All our dogs are microchipped before they are adopted. The Akitas we take in come from all walks of life. Some have been abused and neglected and some have come from well known breeders. It is a huge misconception that all dogs that come from rescue are all problem dogs. We have seen some of the most wonderfully tempered Akitas come out of these shelters and we hope we can give many more a second chance at the life they never had.
