Squirrel is a gorgeous young lady with soft shiny fur!
Just like her namesake, Squirrel loves to run and play. She is an active girl who loves to go for walks! She's very friendly and sociable with everyone she meets when she is out with our Animal Friends volunteers.
Whether chasing tennis balls or going for a long walk, she would be an ideal match for an active family looking for a perfect four-footed companion to join in the fun.
Typical for her Akita breed, she can be somewhat independent and aloof at times, but definitely remembers her friends and gets very excited when you approach her kennel.
Squirrel is not too fond of cats, so she would prefer that there were none in her forever home. She doesn't mind some dogs, so if you have one in your home already, she'd definitely like to meet him or her first!
Squirrel knows the sit command and takes treats gently, and is waiting for a family to call her very own!
If you’re looking for a loving, fun activity partner, Squirrel is your girl! Contact the Adoption department to meet her.
