Sirus is a very handsome 2 year old long coated male Akita searching for his new forever home. His current owners will look after Sirius until the right home is found. He is most reluctantly given up due to changed circumstances and his owners being unable to provide for this gorgeous boy’s needs. Sirus has been with his family since he was 8 weeks old. He is house and lead trained and knows the basic commands. While he is usually with someone, he has been left alone for up to 8 hours at a stretch and been fine. Comfortable being outdoors (in good weather), Sirus is independent and does not seem to suffer from separation anxiety.
Like most akitas, Sirus can appear aloof to strangers although he has never been aggressive. He warms up after a while and is very talkative. He is affectionate and will respond with licks and gentle hand holding (with his mouth). He has however been territorial with food and toys on occasion and will need an experienced owner to watch out for this. While Sirus has never displayed any aggression to humans, we would prefer a home that only has older children as he can be boisterous. He has been socialised with other dogs although due to potential food or toy guarding issues, we would encourage initial supervision in such interactions.
Sirus is from an only dog home, however he can probably live with a similar sized calm female after successful introductions. Playful and intelligent, Sirus will be the perfect and faithful companion for the right home. If brushing and investing love and time in this beautiful boy is what you can do, please do get in touch! He is currently located in Derbyshire.
