My name is Debbie Edwards and my 77 year old dad, Frank Lippert, adopted “patches” about a year ago. Since the adoption, my dad’s Parkinson’s has rapidly progressed and he is no longer able to keep up with her training and daily exercise needs. He has made the heartbreaking decision to surrender her in hopes that she finds the family she deserves. We have asked friends and family and posted her online with no luck.
Patches is just over a year old. She is fully vetted and my dad sent her to a six week training program when she was six months old. She is also spayed. She weights approximately 72 lbs and is a Dogo Argentine/ Akita mix. She is potty trained and crate trained.
Patches is a jumper and tends to jump on people when she is excited, which has resulted in both my mom and dad falling, sending them to the emergency room. She also counter surfs and is very sneaky. Because she is bored, she keeps herself entertained with mischief (taking pillows outside and taking out stuffing ect).


He is a very energetic pure bred Akita. He’s half goofball, half good boy. He is protective with the family he lives with.


I rescued this 2 year old husky/Akita from a family who couldn’t properly care for her. She is sweet and well-behaved. She needs a loving forever home


This is a female American Akita, Sym. She is 2 months away from being two years old. She has been spayed and is up to date with all of her shots. Friendly with other humans, but has not been around children or other pets enough to say she is safe around them. Very energetic, sweet, understands sit command, and is crate trained.
