08/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Joining us when her family moved someplace not welcoming dogs, we’re told that Akira has been around kids ages 10 and 14 and is relaxed and playful with them, is tolerant and mostly ignores other dogs, is crate trained for up to 6 hours, likes bones and stuffed toys, is housetrained, went to dog parks for exercise, and knows ‘sit’, ‘come’ and ‘gimme five’. Akira is a bit shy when we first meet, but was happy to come out for a walk to show off her housetraining skills. She becomes playful with me when I solicit it, and is calm, gentle, low key and camera shy making it difficult to get a good photo of her. She takes treats gently when offered, and puts her head in my lap for some petting. Akira has been in play group and is a bit nervous and retreats when approached confirming what her former owner told us. Akira needs a little bit of time to warm up to a new person, but when she does she smiles and the tail gets wagging! Japanese for “bright” and “intelligent”, Akira knows that her family has left her and she needs to find a new family to love. Sweet, gentle and easy, she’s hoping, as are we, that it will happen quickly. I love the shy pups, and there is nothing like watching them bloom with the love of a new person. Are you going to be the lucky one?
