Meet Akela

Meet the big and beautiful Akela!

This sweet ray of sunshine has won over the hearts of all the staff here at the Comox SPCA and of course her current foster family.

Akela is a very well-mannered girl, and is always happy to see her human companions. She does the cutest bum wiggles in excitement which is the cutest thing to see since this giant girl sits at an amazing 114lbs! Akela is very gentle for her size and seems to be very aware of just how large she is but it doesn’t stop her from leaning all her body weight against you while you stand beside her or when you are giving her cuddles and if you sit down on her bed with her, be ready for this “lap dog” to stretch her legs and head out right across your legs!! She adores getting pets and love from people and sure has proven to be quite the suck up!

Due to her size and history in her previous home, Akela really enjoys spending her days laying in the grassy yard soaking in the sun, and is happy to be independently outside. She seems to enjoy squeaky toys and will happily keep herself entertained for hours. Akela is quite content indoors as well, but does prefer to lay on colder surfaces if given the choice.

Akela came into our care with her brother Diesel and does enjoy the company of other dogs. She is currently in a foster home with a smaller breed dog who she gets along well beautifully. She is very gentle and loving with him. Akela’s foster family also have two children that she is very fond of and she would be a good fit in a home with children. She does seem a bit leery of some men and does seem to prefer women, but if given time to get used to new people she does come around very quickly.

When Akela arrived in our care we discovered that she had a torn cruciate ligament that required surgery. She has now received TPLO surgery to repair her injured hind leg and is recovering beautifully in a foster home. She is still on the mend and has a bit of recovery ahead of her before she gets the all clear, but we are looking for her new forever family and are hoping to place her into a foster to adopt home that have experienced with XL breed dogs and experience with these types of surgeries to help her have a successful recovery.
