Current Status: Available
Yoda's Story: Yoda was sold via a free ad and picked up from a drunken house party and police refused to give back. Sweet natured boy in receiving kennels. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Yoda is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Yoda is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.
• Young man who relates so well to his people in an aloof way and head tilts whilst you talk to him
• Typical Akita, paws on to your shoulders and can get excited mouthy if he knows its time for walk or paddock
• Easy to walk. Housetrained.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £200. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Yoda's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: We were asked to save Yoda's life as receiving Rescue assessed him as needing a chance to go into the right hands. Police was picked up 10 days later when he had 'mouthed' someone reddened skin was when he was walked through a house party having been kept in the bathroom for 3 hours out of the way. Everyone was drunk and he was confused.

Poor Yoda. What these dogs are expected to put up with. I was there when he arrived yesterday - what a lovely looking boy. Onwards and upwards in RR's care Yoda.

Yoda is a stunning boy. Jo made friends with him and I joined her to do his photoshoot. Yoda is a little aloof with people as Akita's tend to be but he is a calm, gentle boy for his size and was happy to accept attention and fuss. He was very chilled passing all the other dogs in their kennels. We then took him to the paddock and his prime focus was checking out all the new smells while keeping an eye on what was happening outside.

Busy day for Yoda today pleasant time in the paddock followed by a walk with Helen then off to the vet. Yoda was managed on a muzzle through pre-med and was neutered, and 1sr Vax'd. He was in good health and good humour jumping in the dog mobile after his visit and seemed happy to be home again.

I walked Yoda on Saturday and absolutely loved every second with him.

He is very calm and laid back, and I found putting his leads on easy. He isn't particularly bothered by other dogs in neighbouring kennels, just seemed more nosy than anything - I think he wanted to see what all the fuss was about!

We walked into the woods and the first thing I noticed is that he is a plodder. He doesn't rush for anyone, he enjoys taking his time and smelling (and peeing on!) every flower and plant he walks past. He had an itch up against a tree. Generally had a laid-back mooch around, without a single tug on the lead. He didn't seem too impressed with crossing a road full of cars, but didn't let it stop him and crossed without an issue.

He is a beautiful boy. Slightly aloof, but still checks in with you every so often. He did seem to flinch a few times if I gave him a reassuring pat he wasn't expecting, which was heartbreaking - but given his background also not surprising.

This boy needs a home full of love, somewhere to call his own and know that he is safe forever.

I'm rooting for you Yoda, but I'll be more than happy to walk you in the meantime! love4.gif

I had my first walk with Yoda last Saturday. I thought he was going to be massive and a real puller! Once I went to get him out of his kennel I realised he was not as big as I first thought and he is very well mannered on the lead. We walked down the narrow grass verge by the road and he was a dream walking to heel.

He is a very chilled boy when walking and lovely to hang out with. If you love a bigger, fluffy dog then Yoda is the one for you!

I’d been hearing such lovely reports from other walkers about yoda and so I decided I was long overdue a meeting with the handsome lad. I took my opportunity to introduce myself and one of our new walkers as part of a supported and yoda was a total gent. He greeted Tom nicely in his kennel and was a lovely respectful boy during our walk, no pulling just a nice respectful pace and a good old sniff. A couple of times yoda showed me his puppy side by gently mouthing my hand to get attention but there was no pressure and a no signal soon had him stopping and rubbing his head in hand instead as all he wanted was some love and a fuss. Yoda has missed out on some of the usual puppy training and so will need an owner who is happy to teach big baby the things he’s missed out on to date. I don’t think though this will take long as yoda is an intelligent and motivated lad who loves his treats and therefore I think will be a very willing student. Yoda is a gentle lad who really just wants someone to love him and restore his faith in humans. Could you be that person?
