NO PUPPIES AVAILABLE
If you are interested in a future puppy, please read my companion or show purchase agreement and provide me detailed answers to the questions listed under the Qualified Homes section below.
Moonlight Akitas expects to have puppies in fall 2016 and winter 2016/2017
If you are willing to take an adult Akita, please consider a rescue Akita, please find the New Mexico Akita Rescue Group on Facebook.
Moonlight Akitas are only bred if they are of sound temperament and health certified. They enjoy giving lots of kisses and like attention. They are easily trained and very responsive to the enforcement needed to insure a great dog. A quality dog takes a good amount of discipline with a respectful, loving hand and environment. Moonlight offers a sound basis for you to build on, and will assist in many ways to help a new owner achieve their goalâ€”an Akita to live with.
Moonlight Akitas does NOT encourage all people interested in an Akita to actually acquire an Akita. Since the Akita is one of the most dignified and beautiful canines available, many prospective canine owners seek to learn more about the breed. Some of these potential Akita owners are going to be much better off with a Labrador, German Shepherd, or a smaller dog. If you desire an extremely obedient dog that always comes when called, a dog that can always be off leash at the park, and a dog that will be by your side craving attentionâ€”then an Akita is not for you. Please try another breed-- you will be much happier.
However, if you are seeking a companion that has a mind of it own, one that can be stubborn and determined to try to have its own way, a dog that can pretend to not hear your calls, and a very affectionate and loving companion then an Akita might be for you.
Moonlight Akitas occasionally have Akitas available to qualified homes. First, please read this article to determine if you really want one a dog, especially one of my Akitas--warning, its about permanent dog ownership/responsibility, it will hit you in the gut. If you are still interested in an adult, a puppy or more information, please contact me.

Adults are sometimes available and are only placed after they have been altered unless it is a show dog being placed into a show home. The price is always somewhat negotiable depending on terms and personal arrangements. The purchaser pays all additional expenses (shipping, crate, etc).
Deposits are accepted to reserve a puppy from an upcoming litter. The deposit amount is usually $250 - $500 depending on the litter.
Health certificates are available upon request.
