I finally joined the forum so I could comment on you and Caboo. I am so glad to hear of your story, and Caboo is a magnificent pooch. What a gorgeous face! And that coat! I have had 7 rescue dogs, mostly abused pit bulls, and they have all been so loving and loyal once they knew they'd found a forever home with someone who would give them nothing but cuddles and biscuits. It sounds like you have found the same thing with Caboo. It is so nice that you took such a broken hearted and rather fearsome (to those who don't know him!) fellow into your home and heart, despite some of the initial hardships. It truly is worth it to know you have saved a lost creature and found love. 3 cheers for you and Caboo, and I'd give him a zillion biscuits if I could!

I still erupt into tears of indignation and anger over peoples heartless treatment and disposal of pets. Thank you for letting Caboo have a heartwarming ending to his story! I think Quasimodo covered all else to say. Except, I'll add what an exceptionally intelligent looking gent he is!

What an AWESOME AWESOME baby!
As the Momma of 8 rescues, 1 a pit mix, I commend you!
Thank you for giving Caboo's life meaning! (& yours too!)

Is this his " Love me, or else!" face? It's SO cute!

Your story made me cry. Caboo is so beautiful and looks so happy thanks to you. I wish we could rescue all the dogs in the world and find them such loving homes. Caboo is one of the few lucky ones.

He is beautiful. If you have an Akita who loves you, you have something special. Glad you found each other!

Bless you a thousand times for rescuing this beautiful dog,

Caboo is a real find!

Bless YOU, too!

I HATE what happens to pit bulls....they do not deserve their bad rep OR the horrible treatment they endure.

People who mistreat animals should be thoroughly horsewhipped!

Caboo looks completely happy and content, thanks to his mom. What an awesome story. Caboo is a very handsome Akita and I wish you many more happy years with your prescious dog. Hugs and kisses.

Such a gorgeous, fantastic sweet baby! Bless you for rescuing him and giving him the life he deserves. Like a few others on here, I too have rescued 5 dogs, two of them are pit bulls and one came from a pretty terrible situation. They make my life happier each day!
If you haven't done so already, you should put Caboo on Dogster! It is also a fun pooch place! This is the link to my Petey http://www.dogster.c om/dogs... and from there you can see the rest of the family! :)

What a beautiful and touching story . Caboo and you are a very special,lucky two. I commend you both for not giving up hope and trust. Bless you .Many happy runs together.

How is it possible to be both happy (for you and Caboo) and sad (for the other lost babies) at the same time? Right now my happiness for you outweighs the other- so let me say thank you for rescueing this magnificent boy- and thank you for sharing him with all of us!
Love from my herd to yours.

I've adopted two abandoned dogs -- both little guys. How impressive you took on such a big guy and had the perserverance to work thru problems as basic as not really having a place to keep him. Cabo is so dignified and heart-melting. The photo of him showing off his pan (big enough to bathe one of my little guys) brought tears to my eyes. Bless you both!
Nov 17, 2007 Mummm
Caboo is so beautiful. How could anyone neglect and abuse such super dogs? Hooray for you adopting him, and he you!
Nov 17, 2007 BrightRedScream
I want to thank you so much for giving him a chance....
Most people would shy away from a dog like an Akita because they're so misunderstood, just like pit bulls.
So many of those photos melted my heart and brought tears to my eyes.
They really do choose you don't they? I know my rescued boy did! As hard as he's been to work with and handle, I wouldn't change it for the world.

Such a handsome dog. Bless you for taking him in!
Nov 17, 2007 squamous
This face makes all of the trials and tribulations of taking in a rescue pup all worthwhile. A touching story, and such a handsome boy!
Nov 17, 2007 brnwdrng
What a beautiful dog - his face is very reminiscent of a bear's.
Nov 17, 2007 snuh
Oh! I teared up a little reading about Caboo's story! I know, I'm a weenie. But Caboo is very lucky to have you and it's very inspiring. He's very handsome and happy!

I have a friend that had a female Akita for many years and Kara (the dogs name) was very protective of Wendy. Kara was such a well behaved dog and she always wanted to please her momma. Thank you for sharing this heart warming story with all of us. I hope the both of you stay safe and always together. LOVE OUR RESCUES!!!!!!!!!!

What a wonderful story. Thank you for giving this beautiful dog the happy life that he now has with you. May it go on and on for many more years.
Bless you both!
Nov 17, 2007 mypuppysmom
What a beautiful boy! Bless you for bringing an abused pup into your heart and home. There are so many good dogs out there that are loving companions once they find a good home. I have a rescued pit mix that is loving, playful, and loyal. She has brought such happiness into our house. Many years of love and joy for you both.

caboo!! what a great name. god, he's such a looker! my god, he's won me over. what a face :D
Nov 17, 2007 sylvanbliss
Just when I was wondering when we were going to see an Akita, here comes Caboo! This breed is facinating, very primitive and challenging.

Thanks to you and to your support team, friends and family, for making your first year together, possible. You've provided him with a wonderful life, the one he deserves. A life any dog would hope for!

My dogs adore their Jolly Ball! They like to shake it by the rope, beating themselves in the noggen 'till they're silly. Luna is this coming Monday's Grown-up Puppy, look for her and her Jolly Ball.

Great pictures of a Grateful Dog!! All the best!!

Those are the prettiest Akita markings I've ever seen.

I usually give Akitas a wide berth when I'm out walking my big doggy, but if I saw Caboo, I'd have to try to find a way to come over and pet him!

Congrats on your lovely pup.
Nov 17, 2007 Sasafras56
Your story is so familiar to me as I foster animals that are abused,
neglected and abandoned. Caboo looks very happy in his home and truly God bless you for taking him in and giving him someone to love and give joy too.
Nov 17, 2007 PIPPIN
Caboo is a beautiful boy. Thank goodness you found each other and he learnt to trust and love you. Well done to you for the sacrifices you went through so you could have each other, and also a thank you to the kind people who helped you make it happen. Continue to enjoy the beautiful companionship you both share and love to you both.
Nov 17, 2007 LucyB
What a great story.I'm so glad the two of you made a safe and loving home together.He has the face of a contented boy now.Bless you both!

Beautiful soulful dog--Thanks for sharing him and for his rescue!!!!!
Nov 18, 2007 denawolves
He is a lucky boy! Looks like he has a fantastic life- can you adopt me too?
Nov 18, 2007 mling
What a great story! Wish you many more happy years with your Caboo!
Nov 23, 2007 jillieorama
Thank you for sharing this story, and bless you for rescuing this wonderful dog. What you wrote about how he had made himself yours really resonated with me--I think a lot of times we are chosen by these creatures, and that really is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. But it's worth it a thousand times over when that bond is a part of our lives.

This is a really moving story. You and Caboo are lucky to have one another, and I wish you nothing but joy, love, health and long years together. God bless you.

I am so glad you chose to have him your life no matter the struggle. He looks as though his wounds can be healed! Kudos for taking on such a challenge as this one, Caboo has someone special to look after now!
