Akamaru is a big beautiful boy with lots of energy. He can be wary of strangers initially and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. Once he knows you he is very affectionate. He has shared his home with children for only very brief amount of time and we are told he was okay with them, however given the fact that he has shown some resource guarding behaviour, 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. Akamaru was fine with the cats he originally grew up with, however he has proved predatory to new cats so 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. He can be unsettled when left on his own in the house. Akamaru will need an owner who can provide him with further guidance.
Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house. He was rehomed for a very brief amount of time but proved predatory towards new cats. He was rehomed but his adopters moved to a smaller property and could not provide him with the ongoing training he requires.
Akamaru needs an owner who can continue his training using positive reward based methods. He is very active and requires lots of exercise. Akamaru needs a home without cats and other small animals. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young children as he needs further guidance to help his resource guarding issues.
