Shadow is bouncy friendly 5 year old male Akita boy who is alert and used to people. He responds well to pats and fussing although seems to be wary of people patting his back end as he does pull away when that part of his body is stroked. That said, he displays no sign of aggression and seems to enjoy meeting new people. He is lead trained and understands the basic commands. However as any dog owner will know, ongoing training will always be beneficial. Shadow does not appear to be food or toy aggression although he is reluctant to part with his favourite toys. As Shadow is relative untested with other dogs we feel he would be better placed as the only dog in his home. However, his current owner reports that he is fine with small dogs. Shadow is not cat tested. Shadow is used to living with children 9 plus so we would consider homes with children of a similar age and upwards.
Shadow does spend the days alone however as he appears to genuinely enjoy human company, it would be preferable that this is limited to just a few hours a day. He is used to living outside but with guidance should adapt to being inside the home.
If you have space in your heart for a loving happy boy who just wants a full belly, affection and some adventures outdoors and can provide a secure home that is full of love but yet firm, please contact us. Shadow is currently located in West Yorkshire.
