Arrival Story: We were looking for a young female Akita and found Boomba on the Chicago Animal Care and Control website. She was "on hold" be fostered through the local akita rescue, but ACC couldn't hold her much longer. She had been at the shelter for 3 months when we went to meet her. She was only 2 years old and we were her 3rd family. Boomba is missing the last several inches of her tail and has a lot scar tissue on her neck scruff. We'll never know the sad story of her life before we found her, but she came home with us that day and has been "home" ever since. She's been a lot of work, but such a happy and loving furbaby. We're blessed to have her as part of our family.
