Midnight is the guy your mother warned you about - handsome but trouble!
This 3 year old lad needs a home with extensive Akita experience. He is not a first-timer dog, though he would love to fool you into thinking he was, so he could quickly reign as undisputed ruler of the house.
Midnight is everything that you love about the breed but also what makes him a rescue groups nightmare - aloof to the point of prickly with strangers, loyal to his people, selective in his canine companions, willing to throw his weight around if he thinks he can and the looks of a supermodel.
Midnight will delight you with his high fives and willingness to do tricks for a tasty snack. He walks nicely on lead if you have appropriate handling skills. This big fella takes a few days to settle into a new environment, but once he does he’s a charmer that is always happy to see you.
Midnight requires a reasonably sized, secure, digproof backyard. You also can’t be to attached to your garden or lawn - he likes to mark everywhere and has paws like a bear when he scats!
He could possibly live with another female Akita that was willing to put up with his boofheadedness. Cats and other pocket pets are no-goes, and he needs an adult only home.
Please do not apply unless you have a thorough understanding and experience with Akitas. If you do, please submit an application!
Midnight is not available for interstate adoption, is not suitable for apartments, rural living, or residences with small yards. Akita experience is essential.
