Akita, Crossbreed | 5 years old



Charlie is a stunning, huge, akita crossbreed who is ready to start looking for his new home. Charlie is easy to introduce to people although he can be worried when visitors come into the house. Once he knows you he enjoys a fuss, and there is a lot of him to fuss over, which we rather like. He has been rehomed and returned to us a couple of times, so this time he is looking for experienced owners who are fans of large breed dogs, and have maybe owned one or two before (akita homes would be brilliant!). Charlie needs to wear a muzzle on walks whenever he could come into contact with small animals or other dogs. The vast majority of the time he walks like a dream on the lead, but when he wants to go somewhere fast he is incredibly strong and needs owners who can hold onto him and keep their footing at the same time!

Type of home needed

Charlie is looking for a home with owners who are around most of the time initially. Once he has settled in, he should be fine on is own for short periods. Charlie doesn't know how big he is and needs an adult only home with no other pets. He would hugely benefit from living somewhere with quiet walks and not too many dogs, and he needs a home with a Charlie-sized enclosed garden, so that he can enjoy some off lead time and has somewhere to chill out in the fresh air. Charlie is a wonderful dog and will be a great companion. Potential adopters will need to live within one hour of the Leeds rehoming centre as multiple centre and home visits will be required.
