ONE Year older Akita-cross Akira was awaiting for a new home for over 10 weeks
A gorgeous akita-cross was waiting for her forever home for nearly a year — many of her brief life.
One-year old Akira arrived in the RSPCA‘s Brighton Animal Centre at March 2019.
Jenny Wells, in the Sussex, Brighton & East Grinstead branch — that runs the center — stated: “Akira was rescued by an inspector and was extremely malnourished when she arrived. After a lot of veterinary investigation we’ve discovered that Akira has digestive issues linked to her pancreas. She’s now on a special diet and has an enzyme supplement in her food. She’s gained lots of weight and feels much better.”
The sweet woman has been paw-tiently awaiting her forever home for over 10 months. At just over a year old, she’s spent all her life at kennels.
Jenny added:”Akira really warrants to wave goodbye to kennel life and move off to a beautiful new house. She’s a friendly, boisterous woman who acts like a puppy.
“She’s really smart and understands ‘sit’ and ‘paw’. She’d really benefit from additional training and is fast to pick up new tricks.
“Akira loves going for walks and can be quite keen. She’s a very active breed so will need a home with new owners who can keep up with her!”
Akira is currently searching for a home where she’ll be the only pet. She has missed out on lots of socialising so will gain from additional favorable socialisation with other dogs.
RSPCA staff believe she’d be ideal for a adult-only house with individuals that are experienced with large dogs.
“Akira is bouncy and playful, but she’s also cheeky and likes to push the boundaries so needs an owner who can control her and help her settle into a calm, relaxed dog,” Jenny added.
“Ideally we’d like her to be rehomed near to the centre so our vet can provide regular check-ups and monitor her health condition.”
