Meet this gorgeous girl Kia! Kia is a six year old, female purebred Akita. Kia is being rehomed because her owner's home situation has changed. Kia's owner reached out to us (Shelter Survivors) in hopes that we can help Kia find her perfect forever home.
Kia was bred to be a show dog. Prior to her owner adopting her, she finished her championship. The breeder chose not to breed her and so he put her up for sale. Kia is a wonderful, wonderful dog! She’s mellow in the house, great on a leash, extremely friendly with people of all ages. She loves to ride in the car. Kia is great at the vet and groomer and has stayed happily at the kennel when her owner has to travel. Kia has been in crowds in Princeton and on country hikes and she’s terrific. Kia has had multiple dog walkers and she’s great with anyone she is introduced to. Kia can be dog selective, but she does have a best dog friend in the neighborhood she plays happily with. So if you have a dog, a meet and greet is a must. Kia does best with non-reactive dogs. She would also be fine as the one and only. Kia is happy hanging around, but she can also be playful & loves balls and squeaky toys. She has a mild prey-drive, which is not a problem on walks or being outside; especially when you have treats to focus her attention on you. This could be a problem if there was a small animal in the house as an additional pet. Like most Akitas she’s quiet and almost never barks. Kia does get stressed at times, so she is on a bland diet to help her digestive tract healthy. She also takes Prozac to help calm her anxiety. She’s healthy, and up to date on all vaccinations. She has had a gastropexy to prevent bloat. She would be a wonderful companion and most of all she just wants your love.
Kia is a big girl who weighs about 98 pounds. We do feel that Kia needs an experienced owner. Previous Akita experience is a plus! If you think you would like to make Kia a part of your family, please fill out our Shelter Survivors application online to be considered.
Kia is spayed, up to date with her vaccinations and housetrained.
