Meet Karma, a very typical 1 year old Akitia who is looking for a home to call her own.

Karma is an active girl who thrives on exploration and enjoys playing with her favourite toys. She typically plays with quite independently and will exchange her toys for treats. Despite her independent nature, she has a sweet side that shines through once she’s had the chance to get to know you.

Initially, Karma may be a bit nervous, especially around new faces and female individuals, however, she tends to warm up quickly once a bond has been established. While she may appear wary of handling at first, she’s gradually learning to trust and can be handled all over, though she may stiffen around her back end when unsure.

Karma does enjoy her walks and has shown a playful curiosity in wildlife and small furries on walks. She can sometimes pull forward if she sees something particularly interesting, it is recommended to keep Karma on lead or on long lines when on walks as she doesn’t have the best recall.

This lovely lady is not your typical lap dog; she values her independence and isn’t particularly fond of cuddles or being overhandled. therefore, she would do best in a home with older children, aged 16 and above, who understand and respect her boundaries, as she does enjoy her own space.

Karma does get on very well with other dogs at our centre, and while she enjoys the company of her fellow canines, she does exhibit food aggression, so will be looking to be the only dog in the home, with the possibility of walking buddies. Her food aggression is being actively addressed, and she is learning to sit and wait for her meals. Continued training and patience in the home are key to her success.

Karma is also undergoing muzzle training which has been going well. This training has been used for vet visits and will need to be continued in the home.

Due to her Akita breed characteristics, Karma requires an experienced owner who understands the unique needs and quirks of Akitias and is happy to commit to multiple meets at the centre. She’s a typical stubborn Akitia who will benefit from consistent training and positive reinforcement.
