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.

Scooby is a very friendly, cool, handsome dude. As soon as Jim spotted him yesterday he was straight over to make friends and take him for a walk. He was not disappointed. I walked with them through the woods and into the paddock. Walking, Scooby likes to sniff and explore but once in the paddock and free to roam he was torn between human contact and exploring. Jim and Scooby were getting along like a house on fire so I left them to have fun together in the paddock. Scooby is very affection and has a lovely laid back nature. He is a fun dog to spend time with. Oh and did I mention how handsome he is?

This boy is a cuddle monster! I had the pleasure of taking him to the vet this morning to be chipped and vaccinated, he was so well behaved. There was a slight issue when the vet was trying to put the jabs in - Scooby just wanted to give her a hug! Fortunately he was equally happy to cuddle me so jabs in and away we went. He travelled well in the car and is just an all round sweetheart, let’s hope his new home isn’t far away :crossfingers.gif:

I got to walk Scooby today and wow what a boy. He was lovely and welcoming in his kennel, leads attached we got going and Scooby was not hanging around! Not in a pulley way at all, he was just so happy to be out. He really did make me laugh, as soon as we started walking Scooby just wanted to see and sniff everything, to the point that he was zigzagging not wanting to miss anything, again no pulling involved just gentle excitement woo.gif]
The first dog we came across Scooby did have a bit of a bark and a jump, but I think he may have been surprised more than anything as we went on to pass other dogs and he seemed fine.
We visited the stream where Scooby had a little drink but not too fussed. We stuck to the shady paths and stopped for treats which Scooby loved, super gentle.
Scooby really was a delightful walking companion and I absolutely could have stayed out for way longer but it really was too warm.
I'd just like to add that I was stunned when I saw Scooby's age, for one so young he is amazingly calm and gentle, such a lovely boy Kiss of love.gif

Scooby shared his walk with Deano this morning. After some initial excitement about having Deano walking behind him, Scooby soon settled and was relaxed and calm during his walk, checking regularly to see what Deano was up to behind him. Seeing Deano busy sniffing and ignoring him, Scooby was able to choose to move on and not be bothered by him.
Scooby will benefit from having some social walks to build up his experience and confidence around other dogs. He is young and can be a little excitable and playful.

we love akitas so its been no hardship to walk the gorgeous scooby last week and today - he comes out of his kennel nicely and likes a bit of paddock play first where he most enthusiastically loves to chase a few balls and a roll in the wet grass - he likes a bit of side to side walking so as not to miss anything he really is a lovely boy

what a pearl of a dog scooby is - a real softie for a big dog as most akitas are we find - he loves the paddock first for some running around and he especially loves rolling around in damp grass - on his walk he went from side to side (as always) exploring every sniff he could - he will be a great dog for some lucky person

Scooby walked with Louise this morning and he the perfect gentleman. He was happy to let little Luna follow in his footsteps. He is such a gentle, calm boy. Come on people, someone is missing out on a smashing dog in Scooby.
