Young Akira is ready to find her forever home.  At three (3) years of age, Akira has had a rough start, from being on a chain with minimal socailsation, Akira's life has turned around and she is now experiencing everything she previously missed out on.

A curious, playful girl with a personality to match, Akira is a girl that learns quickly and being food focused makes training easier, as Akira loves to please and she knows training equal yummy treats.

Within the home, Akira has mastered following commands such as sit, drop, place, learnt good door manners and she has great impulse control to leave it.  Crate training has been successful and she happily hops in her crate with the house command.  Favourite past times for Akira are to play tug-of-war and nose-work, of which she is great at nose-work games and she loves being close to her people.

Outside of the home, Akira's training has been around learning to walk on lead and dog socialisation.  Akira is learning to focus on her handler and she continues to improve each week. Outside exposure training will need to continue in her new forever home.

We are seeking a quiet environment, within a low stimulus area, a loving home, with an experienced owner of the breed, who is home most of the time and who has the time and patience to continue working with Akira.  Homes with children aged 8 and onwards are suitable.  Within her new home, Akira has potential to excel in so many areas with what she has accomplished in eight weeks of foster care.

Akira is not suited to living with other pets, full-time workers, apartment living or first time shepherd owners.
