Roxy I Akita I Female I 8.5 years old*

*Treasure and Roxy currently live together. While they would love to move into a new home together, they are both capable of moving on to a new life independently.

Roxy is a very special lady that needs a very special home. Imported from Europe as a pup, Roxy's first few years were chaotic and unstable. As such, she now has a great need for security in her life. She will devote herself completely to you once she accepts you as her new family. She is loyal to the core and wants nothing other than to be around the people she loves. And the dogs she loves too! She craves canine company (so long as they know she's the boss) as part of her home environment and even lives happily with 2 cats. Resting in front of a fan and watching the world go by is one of her favourite pastimes.

A typical Akita, Roxy will completely ignore anyone she doesn't identify as family. She throws shade like a master! Also typically, she will alert her family to anyone that falls into the "intruder alert" category in her home. On the sidewalk? She couldn't care less. At the front door? She's on it and will bark.

She loves a daily stroll and walks very nicely on the lead. Due to her age and size she's not the fastest cab off the rank, but her gentle pace will allow you to stop and smell the roses with her. She doesn't appreciate other dogs running up to her off lead (who does?) but will mind her own business if others mind theirs.

Due to her rough start in life, Roxy has a few anxiety issues. She is desperately terrified of loud rain, thunder, fireworks and things that go bump in the dark. If allowed access inside and a place to hide, she can cope. As the weather is so fickle in Melbourne, she will need to be allowed inside, even if her humans are out.

She also does not cope well to change, so will need a very compassionate, patient home, who is able to give her the understanding and time she needs to adjust, while encouraging her to enjoy life. Young children would be too stressful and unpredictable for her, as would a busy household. She needs a place where the days are calm and her owners are home for most of the day. For this she will give you her heart.

Roxy currently lives with Treasure. While they would be love to move into a new home together, they are both capable of moving on to a new life independently. Roxy will need to live with a compatible dog, to keep her company.

Treasure I Akita I Male I 4 years old*
CH Desertraine Treasure Trove (Al)

*Treasure and Roxy currently live together. While they would love to move into a new home together, they are both capable of moving on to a new life independently.*

Treasure's Profile:

They don't come cuddlier than this boy! Treasure will hug you, smooch you and lay on your lap if you let him. He looooves people and is a very chilled, a very relaxed fella to have around the house. Toilet trained and polite, he really is a gentle giant inside. Give him a liver treat and he will give you his heart.

Treasure is an akita, a difficult breed that is not suited for the novice dog owner. Treasure will need a new family that understands his Akita traits and challenges. He is a big boy and will need someone committed to training and attending obedience classes. If you want to adopt Treasure please think of how you will be able to fulfill this very important requirement to get him to where he needs to be. He has had very limited exposure to the outside world, so needs an understanding, confident handler to guide him. His only exposure to other dogs have been the ones that he has lived with, so strange dogs can be quite alarming to him and he doesn't yet understand how to react appropriately. He may be suited to living with another female Akita, but the introduction would need to be done slowly.

Like most Akita's, he can be quite stubborn and has a high prey drive. He will need a home with no small critters or birds. He does currently live with cats, but it took many months of supervision and integration to achieve acceptance from both parties, so any new home with a feline must be willing to do the same, with no guarantee of results and the potential risks to any household cats.

Treasure is just that, a treasure and would make an amazing addition to an experienced akita family. He hasn't had any contact with young children, so for this reason and due to his size, would only be suitable for a home with older kids that are teens or adults.

Treasure currently lives with Roxy. While they would be love to move into a new home together, they are both capable of moving on to a new life independently.
