River is a fantastically friendly 3 year old Akita who has had quite a rollercoaster ride recently! He came to us from a less than ideal living situation, but quickly adapted and took it all in his stride. He is very strong and full of energy, and even having dodgy knees doesn't hold him back! He would definitely benefit from some basic training as when he wants to go and investigate something, you're certainly going with him! He has been a big hit with his carers and his confidence has improved greatly with them.
Type of home needed
River gets along fairly well with other dogs, but some find his strength and exuberance a bit much, and we feel he's better as the only pet, at least whilst he finds his way in the world. He hasn't been used to living inside so may have an accident or two, but other dogs we have had from the same situation have done wonderfully at home. River is better suited to a home where any children are of teen age, as he isn't used to being around kids and he's a big lad. He recently had xrays which showed him to have a problem with his patellas. he is currently on anti inflammatories for this, and there is a chance that he may need surgery in the future.
More about me
If you would like to adopt River, please click "Come And Meet Me". Applications will close when we have found him a suitable home.
During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our
rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful
staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now
able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs.
This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of
being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by
your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without
your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to
those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs
get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them
their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult
time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue
looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
