Peony has come into WARS after being found as a stray and sadly never claimed. She is a sweet girl, although not to bothered if she is getting fuss and attention from her walkers. She is just happy to podder along and have a good sniff. She walks well on a lead, however she does pull a little on the lead. She does appear to have a skin issue which is being treated and we hope will clear up with the right medication.
Peony will need an experienced family either used to the Akita breed or larger breeds. She would benefit from training and socialsation classes. She could live with children 16+ and would need a fully enclosed garden with 6ft fences.
The Akita is a large, strong, independent and dominant dog. Sometimes spontaneous, it needs a confident, consistent handler, without which the dog will be very wilful and stubborn.
