Meet Akessa

Hey there, dog lovers! I'm Akessa, a female Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer mix, aged 5 years and weighing in at a sturdy 54 pounds. As a recent **Pups 4 Parole training program** graduate, I'm a proud member of the house-trained, kennel and leash-trained club! I will need my forever family to be committed to continuing my training so I can be the bestest girl ever!

I prefer to be the only pet in the household, as I have a strong personality and like to have all the attention to myself. Though I'm not fond of feline friends, I get along famously with older children, enjoying their playful energy and companionship. For my safety and security, I require a minimum 4-foot fence. With my knowledge of basic commands and eagerness to please, I'm always up for a challenge and ready to learn new tricks with the guidance of a patient and loving family. Plus, I require an active lifestyle, so I'm seeking a family who can take me on daily walks and provide plenty of opportunities for exercise and adventure. If you're searching for a loyal and energetic companion to join you on life's adventures, I'm the girl for you!

My adoption fee is $150 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip!

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes. Pets are family and are not disposable. Please make sure that you are 100% committed to a pet before considering adding one to your home.

We are a foster-based organization, and we need more fosters to help us save more animals! If you’re interested in saving lives just like the one you’re reading about, fill out a foster app here. To foster dogs:
