Akita And Akita X Elkhound

$600 obo


We have 2 large breed dogs we may be looking to rehome.
Our rental flooded at the end of April, we’ve been living in a 5th wheel on the property to take care of the dogs, as we were under the understanding we would be moving back in after it was fixed. Unfortunately we just found out our landlord has to take the insurance company to court and has no set date for the repairs to be completed. We have 2 young children and need to be settled somewhere before winter and if school resumes.
So we’ve been left with the task of finding a place that will let us bring the dogs, and unfortunately family-suitable rentals themselves are few and far between in or out of FSJ.
The dogs are male & female. 1 1/2 years old, intact. The male is an 100+ lb Akita x Elkhound. The female is a 85+ lb full Akita.
They are guard stock. They guard the acreage we are on now. We used to have trouble with cougars, bears, and wolves. Since we got them we haven’t seen any sign of undesired wildlife. Or undesired humans. There have been multiple break-ins at properties around us, our home however has never been touched.
These guys are VERY protective of family. Very wary of strange people. They are NOT good with other dogs. We will not consider a place with other dogs. They have a strong prey drive and have NOT been tested with livestock. Very doubtful they would be good with anything smaller than them.
That being said, they would be EXCELLENT at guarding land or property, possibly a herd of cattle or bison. If you worry about aggressive wildlife or unwanted human visitors, these 2 would be an excellent consideration for you.
We won’t consider a home in town. You must have an acreage. They are amazing with our Young kids. But very much family protective. We will only consider those with large dog experience and ask that you research the breeds before inquiring. They are working dogs who do their jobs well, not pets.
They have a 10x10 Chain link kennel we could send with them as well as prong collars for a fee if wanted.
Would prefer them to go together as they’ve grown up together, but would consider separating them and *hopefully* taking one of them with us if someone was interested in just one of them.

They are not free. If you are interested in telling us a bit about yourselves and your living situation and why your family would be a good fit, please email me. Serious inquiries only please, we know where they will work and where they will not, we won’t change our minds or ‘try’ them out in any situation that sets them up for failure.
