Karla is a beautiful 7 year old female senior Akita lady who is loyal, regal and devoted. While she is a typical aloof Akita with strangers, she is polite and warms up once she gets to know you. She walks beautifully on lead and is respectful and alert. Karla currently lives with children and has been socialised with dogs. That said, we would always advise that all interactions with small children and other dogs be supervised, at least initially. We think that Karla might be able to live with a confident male pending successful introductions.
Karla does not display any food or toy guarding issues and understands the basic commands. However, she does have selective hearing until she has built a rapport with you. Once a bond has been formed, Karla is very obedient.
Karla is toilet trained and tidy. She does however have some separation anxiety and will need a home where someone is at home most of the day. She is currently located in Durham.
