16 month old American Akita. Not common White and Tan colouring. She is very laid back and has been brought up around young children and babies in the home. She can be dominating towards other dogs therefore has to be supervised ( this being said she has been well socialised and has many dogs who she interacts with on daily walks and loves to play). She is crate trained and can be left upto 4 hours alone in the crate. She enjoys lots of attention and cuddles. We are unable to meet her needs any longer. She needs an active home where someone is home most of the time. Aswell as 4 walks a day she needs brain stimulation activities. We do want what is best for her and due to illness in the family home we cannot provide the care she so very much deserves. She can be rehomed with her crate and toys aswell as foods bowls,harness, leash.
Safety Notice: NEVER send a payment or deposit online before viewing the Pet to confirm the advert is genuine. Read our Covid-19 safe buying guide.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a dog.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a dog is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the puppies with the puppies' mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the puppy, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the puppy. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal, you must have signed a well-defined contract.
The advertiser should only release the puppies when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the puppy from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Our dogs bark as a way of communicating with us. At times, it can be a destructive behaviour if not properly trained by pooch owners. To lessen nuisance barking, a dog has to a veterinary procedure of devocalising a dog known as venticulocordectomy.
Our dogs have extremely sensitive hearing. Dogs can detect sound within the frequency range of 45–67,000 Hz, whilst we only hear within the range of 20–20,000 Hz. Because of their superior hearing, our pooches are highly vulnerable to shocks caused by loud noises. Sometimes, it can even result to fatal consequences, and this is what sadly happened to Molly.
