Meet James Franco

Contributed by Contributed by Tracy Smith, Mat-Su Borough Animal Care

James Franco is one handsome guy! He’s about 2 years old. He enjoys pets and scratches, can be quite playful and also quite lazy. He’s fairly silent as most Akita’s are known for, but will let out the occasional bark. James Franco is treat motivated, trainable and knows “sit” and “down”.  

Previously, he lived with small children and did very well with them. He should not however, be in a home with any small animals or cats. In general he does well with submissive dogs, but James is picky about his dog friends and does not get along with all dogs.  

He is house-trained, but has separation anxiety and can be destructive in the home when he’s alone if he hasn’t gotten enough attention or exercise. Fairly recently, he was given a haircut and his fur is growing back in slowly. James Franco would love a family that can appreciate his Akita traits.
