9mo old Akita, Pepsi, owner surrender to the shelter, probably because of suspected hip issues.

Wife and I work with a rescue, we'll probably be fostering him until adoption.

He needs a new name, Pepsi ain't happening.Attachment Attached File

Best rescue I ever had was an Akita mix.

Her name was Keisha, which doesnt work for a boy dog, but thank you for the tripdown memory lane.

Bump!

When I was a kid, the full time residents that lived near our cabin had Akidas they were trying to bread. They were so excited when they concived and eagerly anticipated the valuable pups. Upon birth, they quickly realized there was rouge sire involved. It turned out that the resident scamp, Murphy, an Australian Shepherd, had made it with the misses. The owners were so pissed they gave away the hideous pups to the neighborhood children. This was the best dog I ever owned. He was super smart, extremely loyal (to me only), and never barked. The perfect companion in every way ... except for the hair. The hair was extremely obnoxious.

"Delta", here is the story of the original "Delta":

In the year 79 A.D. there was a cataclysmic volcanic eruption of  Mount Vesuvius near the ancient city of Pompeii. Pompeii was a large trading port and home to many thousands of people. Everyone in and near the city of Pompeii at the time of the volcanic eruption perished on that fateful day so many centuries ago. The city was discovered under many feet of earth and volcanic ash.

What was eerily unique to this discovery was that the bodies of all the victims decomposed in the packed sediment which left a hollow cavity freezing in time the moment of there deaths, in a sort of 3 dimensional negative image. When another hollow cavity was discovered a cast was made by filling the void with plaster, creating an impression of the last moments of life for another soul. While archaeologists were making plaster casts of these cavities Delta was discovered. The cast of Delta’s body was found lying over the body of a young child. Also found in the bottom of this hollow cavity was a silver engraved collar with the dogs name “Delta” the collar also said that the dogs owner was named Severinus and that Delta had saved his life on three separate occasions

The first time Delta had pulled him out of the sea and saved him from drowning.
The second time Delta had defended Severinus when she fought off 4 attackers who had tried to rob him.
Third she had defended him from a wolf that tried to attack him somewhere near the city of Herculaneum.

Delta the hero dog tried once more (in vain) to save the life of a child, in all likely-hood the child Delta sacrificed her life trying to protect was the sibling of her owner Severinus. Delta may have been unable to save the life of that child but she gave her life trying and even with her dying breath Delta never once thought of herself.
