Brothers Shaun and Gabe meeting for the first time. Gabe was from a litter of puppies (Gordon, Gabe, and Gabby) and the parents (Kiyoko and Keito) we brought into rescue in March 2020. The puppies were 5 months old and WE HAD NO IDEA MOM WAS PREGNANT! So we had quite the surprise on 3.13.20, when our Friday the 13th litter (Shaun (of the Dead), Ash (Ash vs Evil/Evil Dead), Tucker, and Dale (Tucker and Dale vs Evil) was born! Gabe was adopted before Shaun and his littermates were old enough to socialize. You may also spot Lincoln and Wasabi in there as well. And Kira's girl, Ziggy. ❀

Japan loves lucky cats, but there is also one type of canine companion admired for its loyalty. Sam Brock shares the story of Hachiko, the faithful dog whose legacy lives on in Japan.

A day in the life of rescue;

β€œAn (what sounded like) elderly woman called the rescue earlier today needing to surrender her 3 year old Akita. It had been attacked by another dog and this woman was going through a rough divorce and just did not have the funds to get her vet care. The Akita sounded to have had an infection that came about after the attack. The owner claimed to have had $82 to her name.

The further we get into the discussion, it’s discovered this dog has neurological issues that make it so it can barely get up and shows visible signs of being in pain. She is also afraid of everything and is very much dog aggressive (not a huge surprise with Akitas, but just added salt to the wound). The woman had just run out of pain meds so even while on meds, quality of life wasn’t there.

Euthanizing is NEVER the first recommendation but after talking for a few minutes, she had agreed the quality just wasn’t there and the best thing would to be give her THREE YEAR OLD peace. Mom and dad of the dog were also brother and sisters; which is why we stress so much to do research on breeders you’re looking at because all her problems are likely related to the poor breeding.

Poor woman was all to pieces and is disabled/cannot drive. Final recommendation was to call animal control to have the dog released to them so they can give her peace. I had this lady on speaker and by the time we hung up, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It is sad when you think your own dogs are just considered lucky to have you, because there are so many that can’t be helped.”

Check out our new girl Ahsoka! She’s the silver haired sweetheart hanging out in the beginning of this video. Ahsoka was found stray and we guess her to be about 6 years old. She is VERY sweet and today we discovered she’s doggy social! Also featured in this video is RIAR Alum Dusk, Wasabi, Artemis (formerly Daisy), and Hera. R***r, hanging out in front of our Akita mix girl Artemis, can also be found in this video and he is also searching for his forever family! He is about 2 years old and just wants your affection and play time! Apply today! πŸ•β€οΈπŸΎ

We're on a pupdate roll, bringing a little sunshine to your lives ;)
Who remembers Boogie?? We got this sweet email update from his family:
"Things have been great, if a little hectic lately. I am, unexpectedly, moving up the street a bit so Boogs will be getting a bigger yard and some new four-legged neighbors!

Right now we're between houses and living with my family and he's really taken to their Schipperke and the countryside- he loves being out on the tether playing catch and watching the deer or neighbor's chickens from the front door. My dad in particular is smitten with him and loves taking him on walks around the property.

Obedience classes got put on hold in the hussle and bussle but we're picking them up again and Boogie seems to enjoy learning new things. We're working on separation anxiety a little at a time so whenever covid telecommuting changes happen it won't be too hard on him. I'm hoping once he's got his manners down a little better he can meet my best friend's pitti mix for a play date. She's young and goofy too so we think she and him will get along pretty well. (Unfortunately his excited hopping scared most of the little dogs in the neighborhood so he's having a tough time finding playmates.)

He's such a sweet boy with such a big personality. He still turns heads and always seems to find cashiers with dog treats when we're out. And he keeps me sane by butting my laptop out of the way for hourly Boogie Breaks during the work day haha

All in all I can't beleive it's only been a couple months- I'm so smitten with him and it seems like he's gotten so comfortable even with the change in scenery lately. I'm so lucky to have found yall and got to meet him."

Heartwarming Pupdate!
Anyone remember Panda?? Here she is at 13 years old, living the sweet life. We're pretty sure this girl is immortal as she has only slowed down a LITTLE as a senior. She originally came to us in 2019 from the shelter in Suffolk, VA. Her owners had left her there, at 11 years old, because "she didn't get along with the new puppy." Let us tell you, this sweet senior was the LEAST dog reactive dog we have ever met, loved everyone, and we even used her to dog test new potentially social fosters (safely, of course). As of early 2021, Panda is now a happy part of her forever family with RIAR alum Zeus (formerly Fraggle). We love you, Panda!!

PUPDATE!!
Trucker says that he is super happy to have a dad this Father's Day! This handsome guy was one of many adult dogs moved from Lone Star Akita Rescue back in February/ March of this year. LSAR was having some financial and boarding difficulties, and, fearing they would have to shut down, they reached out for help. Through the concerted effort of several Akita rescues (including ourselves, Big East Akita Rescue, Akita Rescue Society of Florida, Georgia Akita Rescue Division, and Passion for Paws) who were already overflowing with fosters in their care, many of these dogs were moved all over the country to safety.

Trucker came to LSAR in 2015 after he was dumped by his owners outside a gas station in Monroe, LA. He hung out at the gas station for a while, laying by the door and greeting people, before he moved down to the nearby Walmart. He was picked up and found his way to LSAR.

Trucker was happily adopted in April 2021, after being with us only a month! This kid is now living the good life and making lots of human and canine friends!! ❀❀❀

Sadly, we lost another Akita to bloat this evening. Lady had only been with us for a month after she found herself at Chesapeake Animal Services following her owner passing away. Lady was very much loved by her foster and at least now, she can rejoin her dearly departed owner over the rainbow bridge. We love you sweet girl, sleep tight. πŸ˜­πŸ’”

Thank you Rachel and Kira for making this adoption seamless! Angel and I seem very well suited to one and other!
Angel still seems sensitive when I try brushing her left back leg.
We are such a perfect match! Thanks so much RIAR! Her first day home has been a snow day!
The ever curious Akiko got sprayed by a skunk this morning, right in the face. Any suggestions?
I.. feel.. like.. I'm.. being.. watched.. ohhh Ryu
Just wanted to post a pic of Chi. We adopted her way back in 2011 and she's still going strong. She loves sleeping and relaxing around the house! Thank you all very much for what you do, and thank you for our girl Chi!
Dear Rachel, Thank you for considering us. I thought I had asked you about Smudge when we adopted Dodge, but you didn’t think that she would be a good fit. Your thoughts on this? Thank you!, Amy
I was hoping you might be able to help this beautiful girl
Here is our new baby girl Aiko in KY resting after a long trip home and some serous play time too! Thank you Rakki-Inu Akita Rescue for letting us adopt this beautiful girl, he is a blessing to have!
