|Hello, we are Jim, Christa, Hawkhurst, and Durendal Bevington and we would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our site :o) We have
been owned and loved by Akita's for 16 years now. We started out with a companion male with a possibility of showing him if he matured nicely.
Unfortunately our companion boy retained a testicle and was mono-orchid so we neutered him. My husband Jim who was my best
friend at the time, ended up falling deeply in love with my male, and decided he would like to get a female Akita of show quality so that we could
explore the show world and see if we liked it. And that was where the bug caught us! We were fortunate that we had purchased from a
respectable and reputable breeder. They helped us along the way and went to shows with us to help us learn. It was a great time with a lot of fun.
Thank you John and Carol. Between myself and my husband we have had several dog breeds along our way to finding the Akita. All family dogs
that we grew up with and my family specifically raised Beagles. Many a stray and rescue dog found his way into our family. Simply put, that is
how our dogs remain. Family.
We do all health clearances such as OFA Hips & Elbows, CERF Eyes, and Thyroid screens for the benefit of the breed but also for the benefit of
our fur babies. When they leave us, a piece of us goes with them, but we are comforted by knowing we did right by them.
The Akita is striking ,majestic, and beautiful to behold, and we believe the Akita is a versatile breed. However, we also believe the Akita is not for
the meek owner or for the first time dog owner(there are exceptions)and most assuredly not for an aggressive owner who looks at the Akita as a
tool. With the proper love, training, and guidance from his human family the Akita is a wonderful addition to the family. We like to stay in touch
with all of our puppy owners and offer help and advice along the way. Life time support for you and your puppy is what we like to call it!
We welcome any inquiries even if it is just for information or even to just chat Akita's. :o)
Our dogs are first and foremost our kids. They live in kennels part of the time as well as inside with us in a 2100 sq ft home, and can be found with
us almost everywhere we go. Even out in the yard helping us plant where you can see dirt fly and a dirty face come up with a grin that says "Look
ma I dug this hole for you to put your flowers in!"
Sometimes I think we have ground hogs and fish instead of dogs :O) It does not matter if they are show Akitas or companion Akitas.
We always strive to produce Akita's with sound mind and bodies adhering to the standard.
Thanks for listening to us rant, and thanks again for stopping by! We hope you enjoy your visit! :o)
