Josie is 6 years old and has been such a wonderful pet and mother. I need to find a good home for her where she will get lots of attention and love. She likes to be outside and inside. She has a really nice temperment and gets along with our other dogs, people and children. She is not a "'needy" dog. She is quiet, walks well on a leash and just loves to have her body massaged if you've a mind to. If you have lost your Akita friend recently, I hope you will consider Josie as a new companion, she will love you for it. You can have the love and companionship of an Akita without the puppy training to go through.
