Policies and Procedures
Before you complete an application, please review the following:
We ask first and foremost that potential adopters have experience with the Akita breed or extensive knowledge of same. (You can find Akita breed info on our site.)
Due to the sheer size of the Akita breed, it is our policy to not place adult Akitas in homes with resident children under the age of 10. Puppies may be placed in Akita-savvy homes with children 6 years and older.
We do not place same-sex dogs within the same household.
We adopt our orphans within our area of coverage in the Midwest. We do not ship our orphans.
We don’t adopt to homes which use electric fences.
We do not place our Akitas in apartments due to many not allowing the breed and also the breed is very protective and living in an apartment often causes problems due to their protectiveness of the adjacant dwellers and adjacent pets within.
