Neko is a magnificent BEAR! Today he travelled on the back seat of the dog mobile towering over Zoey Staffie in her crate without a murmur from either. Neko was given a Gen An and his middle ear was flushhed out again. This is the 3rd time it has been done and we are getting there. it will need to be done again in 3 weeks time but it was in a much better state than 3 weeks ago. Hugo has been much happier and he has proved himself to be very friendly to people an and dogs.

On the was back Neko was on the front seat, a sleepy Bear and gear changes was difficult with a 42 kilo dog leaning into you! Love this boy...he is nearly better and will be so much happier once his healing is complete.

Yep Neko is a loveable Bear , He's so happy to have company in his kennels and takes a treat with a gentle mouth.
He walked alongside New kennel friend Anna today , she wanted to be close to the bear and if he walked away she quickly caught up , both were content in the others company.
Neko happily passes other dogs, cyclists and joggers ,He doesn't make a sound just happily walks by .
He's a lovely easy, boy who loves the water and sinks his whole body in to cool down.Hes clearly been loved and hopefully won't be waiting too long for his new home

Older boy Neko the Akita loves nothing more than a slow amble through the trees to the river for a lovely swim. I think if he wasn't on the long line, he'd "just keep swimming" until he reached the ocean. I had to cut it short, as some youngsters in boats were approaching, and were all over the shop .
He's such an amazing calm boy.

Despite Neko’s size he’s so easy to collect from the kennel and walk. When I saw who I was walking I was initially a little bit concerned as to what I was letting myself in for but he easily exceeded all expectations. For whatever reason he does set the other dogs off (maybe because of his size?) but he’s oblivious to it all.
It’s so sad to see him in kennels at his age, and he’s clearly house trained as he doesn’t want to mess his run, so if you have the space and can allow for the fur, he’s got to be for you. Although he’s 10 years old you wouldn’t know it, he appears 2 or 3 years younger.
As the picture shows, his favourite bit about being out was a long dip in the river.

A lovely gentle boy.

Neko is with me for a little holiday, first job is to help the poor boy cool off a bit by generous application of brush and de-shedding/rake comb.

It's possible to see the loose and dead shed in this picture as the tufts of white hair

Image

First go over with just a glove brush produced this pile

Image

Second go and I appear to have enough spare Neko to nearly create an extra Akita

Image

Still loads to come out of him, but you can see how much blacker his fur is across his back

Image

Neko has also met Alfie. Alfie hissed at him. Neko tried to run away between my legs. It's a good job I don't want any more kids....

Thank you for giving him time out of the kennels and looking after / spoiling him so well. You're doing a great job as well as showing potential families what a chilled and lovely boy he is around the home.
