An affectionate dog was left on his own when his owner sadly died. The 10-year-old Akita is currently in the care of Dogs Trust Leeds and is looking for a new home quickly as he is struggling to adapt to life in kennels.

Kumar the Akita is described as having a ‘fantastic nature’ and one of the ‘most affectionate dogs’ you could ever meet.

The dog is now entering his senior years and while he may be too old for long walks, he still enjoys playing tug of war and having a wander around the garden.

He has been given a clean bill of health after vets treated a growth in his paw. He is currently recovering from an operation to remove the growth and potential owners should be willing to continue to support this recovery.

Emma Cooper, assistant manager at Dogs Trust in Leeds, said: “Kumar has a fantastic nature, and he is one of the most affectionate dogs you could ever meet. 

“He likes to be by your side and is content taking life at a slower pace, now that he is entering his senior years.

“Kumar has arthritis in his legs so finding him a home with few stairs where he will be able to spend his retirement years in comfort is essential.

“We would love to hear from potential owners who can offer Kumar a home where he won’t be left on his own and will have space to wander around and explore.

“A household where someone will be around most of the day is very important as Kumar does get very attached to people.

“He does like other dogs but due to his age and arthritis, it would be more beneficial for him to live in a home with no other pets.

“Kumar is an extremely loveable dog and has been described by canine carers at the rehoming centre as a ‘big teddy bear’ in nature.”
