Mariposa is a sweet friendly girl about 6 years old. She’s at the perfect age-past the hyper stage but still somewhat bouncy. We think she’s a badly bred Akita, but she could be an Akita mix. Either way, she’s going to be a darling furkid for the right home.  She’s adjusting very well to indoor living and likes a variety of comfy sleeping places. In the house, she’s usually catching up on her sleep, and outside, she’s ready for walks or car rides. Poor girl had been a stray before spending a couple months in a shelter and then into our foster home. Both her coat and her skin are in rough shape, but with a grain free diet, her fur is coming in nicely. She will need a securely fenced yard to keep her from becoming a stray again because she does love getting out and meeting new people.
Currently, she is living with respectful older kids and cats and does very well with both. She would rather not share her house with other dogs or younger kids; although in public she is carefully polite to dogs that are carefully polite to her.
She’s started wooing and talking a little, which is always welcome! Otherwise, she’s pretty quiet. She can sit, down, and walk on a loose leash. Crate training is slow - she is beginning to get used to the idea that the crate is not a prison, but it scares her and causes her to be reactive. She loves car rides and behaves very well, so taking her places is simple and easy.  She’ll be a pleasant, low key companion for the right person or family.
Please call the foster home for specific questions about Mariposa: 360-305-4414

UPDATE 10/22/13: Her personality is fabulous. Absolutely sweet dog who is careful about where she gives her heart, but once she trusts you, wow-she's the best kind of companion. She's looking better, but her coat is only plush in between the patchy scaly spots, so there's a vet apt in her immediate future. In the last pic she was headed down the driveway to visit the neighbor who just got home, so I had to go get her quick, but it gives an idea of the coat mottling.

Comments: 

 Kodi (left) and Shadow (right) were from a shelter in WY.  They are both up to date on shots and have tested negative for heartworm. They are now house trained, know how to use doggy doors and their manners are greatly improved.

Here's a cute video of them enjoying some plush toys at their foster home: http://youtu.be/je3t4Uv8oaQ

Comments: 

This sweet boy is microchipped and has had surgery for torsion (last September), so it should not be an issue in the future. 

He is looking for a cat free home! 

Here are some notes from his foster family:

Geff is a great dog!  He is approximately 5-6 years old.  He loves being with his family. He enjoys car rides.  He walks OK on leash.  (We are working on it).  He also knows sit, down, and stay hand signals.  He doesn't seem to mind kids as we have a 6 and 7 year old.  

We are currently working on integrating him into our current pack of a male and female Akita.  He is crate trained but would rather not be in it too long.

His ideal home would be with someone or people who treat their dogs like family as he is more of an indoor dog.  He really just wants to hang out with his people.  

We will update more with progress on the interaction with minimally with our female Akita Nikki.
