Saint is a 1 year old Akita mix. I adopted Saint from an animal shelter in Midland, Texas in 2010. Saint loves to play with squirrels and eat pecans. He made friends with this squirrel when they were both babies. Now Saint thinks the squirrel is his baby! He protects and grooms the little guy. Saint is quite a character who always surprises me.

Girly is a nine year old Akita Mix. I rescued her about 8 1/2 years ago. She was wandering around a truck stop and, according to someone working there, she had been there all day! I ran ads to find her owner, and she's been with me ever since. She loves to go to the river. She is the best friend I've ever had!
Meet Joey. She will be 9 years young on March 13. We adopted her when she was 5 weeks old from the Animal Foundation through PetSmart. Her mom is an Akita and we believe, based on her personality, that her dad is some sort of retriever.
At age 7 months she began doing unusual things like opening all the doors in the house, carrying in the groceries and at night getting a pillow from the bed and bringing it into the den where I watch TV. She even began taking other dogs on walks by gently grabbing their leashes from their owner's hands and holding on to the "handle". All we ever taught her to do is: Come, Sit, Down & Wait. Everything else she's taught herself.
For fun Joey likes to play with Maggie Mae, the Scottie next door. Joey found Maggie Mae on her morning walk with my husband. We couldn't find Maggie's owners (no tag or chip) and since our neighbors had lost their pet they adopted Maggie.
