Kita's Search for a Forever Home

I am NOT a dog park dog

I have received several emails from people interested in Kita. That's great! But I want to take a moment to stress a few key points

1) Kita is NOT a dog park dog, she will NEVER be a dog park dog, no matter how much you "socialize" her with other dogs. She does NOT like them, and CANNOT be around other dogs. This is a genetic trait that is in SOME (not all) of the Akita lines.

2)Kita can NOT live with other dogs, even if it is another akita that is opposite gender (male). Many akitas can live happily with another dog, and it is more likely to happen with the same size opposite gender dog- this is NOT the case for Kita.

3) Kita requires a very responsible owner who will NOT put her in AT RISK situations.

I am willing to discuss Kita's needs and the home she requires. I want both Kita and her adopter to be happy and well matched.

Also if you are really interested in meeting Kita please be sure to email me at so I can be sure Kita will be at the dog stand you wish to attend- as crazy as it sounds, sometimes us foster parents have life's outside of rescue (gasp!) I know, its crazy.

If you really want a dog park dog, a dog that will be friendly with another dog in the house, a dog that you can have with your "brother's" dog or your "friend's" dog when you dog sit- Kita is NOT the dog for you.

If you are a one dog person, who wants the bestest best dog in the whole wide world- THAT would be Kita. She is so amazing every other dog pales in comparison (I can brag because I'm her foster mamma)

However, if Kita is not the dog for you, AARF has MANY wonderful dogs that love to play with other dogs !!! So please do visit our dog adoption stands every Saturday from 11am-3pm in front of the Petsmart at Libbie and Broad st.
