General information

Handsome Bobby is a seven year old Akita and is in need of a new home as his previous owner was unable to keep him at their new property.

He is a typical aloof Akita; he seems to prefer his own company and doesn't really seem interested in people. He does occasionally show his softer side though and he does like a fuss, and we know that once he has built a bond with someone that he will make a wonderful pet. Bobby likes to go for his walks around the centre and enjoys a good mooch off lead, at the moment he isn't showing much interest in playing with toys, but again, we feel that this is something he will do once he bonded with someone. He does know his name and will come back when he is called (but not every time!) and he sits nicely for a treat which he will take from you gently - his owners will need to teach him a few more basic commands but he'll probably do really well at training as Akita's are known for their clever characters.

We feel that Bobby would prefer to be the only dog in his new home, he will greet other dogs nicely when he is out for his walks but he doesn't show any interest in them. He is also best off without cats in his new home, he does like to chase them apparently.

Bobby is housetrained, can be left for a short time by himself and can live with children of secondary school age.
