Akamaru is a big beautiful boy with lots of energy. He can be very aloof with strangers and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. He has never lived with children and given the fact that he is uncomfortable with new people in his space, we would not recommend him sharing his space with young infants. Akamaru loves his toys and walks. He is very strong on lead and will need an owner who has experience with the breed. We are told Akamaru has lived with cats who he wasn't fazed by, however we are also told that he can be aggressive towards new cats and this we have certainly found to be the case - we would NOT rehome him with cats or small furries. Adopters should also be aware that the sight of livestock, rabbits etc on walks excites him to levels that are difficult to control. He is friendly towards dogs he meets, but may be a bit too full on for small breeds.
Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house.
Akamaru needs an owner who knows he is not comfortable with new people. He is very active and requires lots of exercise and further training. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young chidlren.
