I purchased Max a year ago as a puppy for our family but the family hasn't contributed to the care and upkeep. I'm hoping for a home where he has plenty of room to roam as he is very active and high spirited ... he loves the snow!

Story
CHANCE – have you ever seen a more handsome fella? Just a few things about this sweet guy. The vet believes that Chance is between 18mo - 2yrs old and weighs 59lbs. • He is heart worm negative and neutered. •He is super sweet and gentle - wants to cuddle and be near his person. •He is dog-friendly (the foster doesn’t have cats, so we are not certain if he’s cat-friendly) •He is people-friendly to everyone he has met. Foster does not have small children, but he has been fine around children on walks. Due to his size and youth, he might knock down small children, but he is not aggressive. •He is house broken. Even in the rain and snow he has let us know he needs to go out. •He is a little timid to new people at first, but warms up quickly. •He very rarely barks. •He has learned to sit, walk on a leash, and “wait” for his food bowl to be put down. •He is very food motivated, so can be easily trained with treat rewards. He is not reactive when eating. •He can be possessive over certain toys with a low, warning growl if another dog tries to take it from him. •He is not interested in fetching a ball, but loves chew toys and antlers. • He can be very active, but is also happy cuddled up with his person. •He would do great in a house with another dog, but would be fine as an only dog also. Once adopted Chance will travel via private transport (transport cost is $160.00) to a location closest to you.

Story
My boy Axel is a Japanese Akita he's 5yrs old, he's a good boy and can be hyper like dogs can get but after calm, he's very chill and relax, loves chillin and looking out windows. He loves attention but doesn't mind his own space to just watch over everything. He doesn't bark unless there's something he's trying to let you know. He's fixed but still has alpha in him so hes not good around any animal he thinks he can catch, bully or kill..I have seen him bow down to bigger dogs. He's very spoiled. Axel has his own toy box and loves all of them and sometimes can be protective of them. But does like to play (just can play rough a times) it's only been us for 5 years and so we played rough sometimes (man's best friend) very protective of females and kids) there's more I can inform you if you decide to go further. 🐕 😊

Story
Meet our beautiful Akita, Harley, who is eagerly looking for a loving and forever home. This majestic and loyal dog has so much love to give, and we believe she will make a wonderful addition to your family. She's a 6-year-old Akita with a stunning coat and a gentle demeanor. With her loyal nature, she will quickly become your most devoted companion. Her temperament: calm and composed nature. She is so loving with adults - although I would caution around very young children until they are socialized properly. Akitas are renowned for their loyalty, and Harley is no exception. She will always be by your side, providing comfort and companionship. She loves walks but also is quiet and content just hanging around the home. She doesn't chew up stuff and is well mannered. She's the smartest dog I've ever had and trainable. She knocks at the door and barks once to come in. Her coat is incredibly soft and she is very sweet.
