Saskia

Age: 13 yearsSex: FemaleBreed: Akita

Found their forever home!

Saskia is such a sweet natured girl who came to us from another Branch to try and find her a home. Saskia is our longest stay dog at the moment for reasons we just can not understand, she absolutely loves everyone she meets, always ready for a cuddle and just adores being with people. Her foster dad says she is perfectly behaved in the house, she is housetrained, can be left on her own for short periods and walks well on the lead.

We understand Saskia is on the older side but she has as much love to give as the youngsters, if not more. Her heart is as big as they come and has eyes that could melt butter. We would love for someone to see what we see in her, she is a gentle giant with a heart of gold. Saskia does suffer from arthritis and is on pain relief for this which she takes really well, due to this she does not require much exercise. Her foster dad has worked out 2 x 20 mins walks a day suits her best.

Saskia only has one floor, she unfortunately is not very good with other dogs which is easily controlled. Saskia is muzzle trained and to her it is just the same as walking on lead and harness, it really does not bother her so we are hoping you guys will not be put off by it. 

Please someone take a chance on our big beautiful girl and we promise you will not regret it, she will be the best friend you could ever wish for.

Adopted!

My personality...

I know how to sit (and lots of other commands too!)

I can be left alone for short periods

I'd prefer to be the only animal in a home

I could live with children of secondary school age

I’m a gentle giant (big and strong)

I’d prefer to be the only dog in a home

I love fuss and attention
