Shadow is a special boy looking for his forever home! He is smarter than a whip, loyal til the end, and loves to play. He does daily obedience training at the shelter and is a playgroup regular. He is so beautiful with his long coat, people love to "ooo and "ahh over him! Shadow needs an experienced dog owner, preferably one with Akita experience. He needs to live in an adult-only home. He tends to bond with one person and would do best in a home with a single person. He loves other dogs, but may need to be an only dog so he can have all your attention. He is a working breed, so his owners will need to provide structure and training. It is a requirement that Shadow's adopter(s) meet with a trainer.
