TAFFY is a 4 YO, 65 LB Akita
Taffy was found wandering the roads, starving and frightened. Today, she is recovering like a champion! While we don't know what past difficulties happened to Taffy, they clearly haven’t changed her happy and loving nature.
As playful as she is beautiful, Taffy shows the profound loyalty Akita's have for their "person" and home. With a big, open smile that breaks out the moment she sees you, this pedigree girl is true to her breed: she is very affectionate, thrives on human companionship and is dedicated to protecting her "pack”. Due to the nature of her breed, she needs a male counterpart. Akitas tend to do well with opposite sex dogs, but do not do well with same sex dogs. NO CATS!
At first, Taffy may be a little shy and cautious, but she quickly gains confidence. Taffy is very curious! She loves to give kisses and surprisingly knows some basic commands - we are teaching her more. We see nothing but bright days ahead for her! She is leash trained and potty trained. She needs someone who has both the time and resources to teach her all the things she needs to be her best self! She is very smart, so she will catch on fast! She is extremely sweet and doesn't have a mean bone in her body, in fact, she does so well at the vet's office, they brag about how sweet & beautiful she is!
If you'd like to give this first-class girl her second chance, forever home, she will require moderate exercise and plenty of time to play! She needs a fenced backyard as she loves to run and play ball with her foster fur-siblings!
