Mark is a 5-year-old male dog, Akita-mix (ID #A544457). His volunteers have told staff that he is very energetic and loves to run. He is full of energy and loves to play. He tends to calm down more when the people around him stay calm. He does best when he has lots of exercise and something to keep his mind busy. He would do best as the only pet in an adult-only home. He can be a bit stubborn sometimes and needs a confident and patient owner who will work with him, not against him. He is a spirited dog with a fun-loving personality. He is still working on his manners, so he would do best with a family who is willing to work with him and help him become the best dog he can be. His adoption fee is $200 and also includes a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of pet insurance through Trupanion. You can find out more about Mark on RASKC’s website at www.kingcounty.gov/adoptapet. Click on “dog” and type in his name. You can meet other animals available for adoption in person, seven days a week, at RASKC’s King County Pet Adoption Center in Kent, 21615 64th Ave. S.; Monday through Friday: noon to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday: noon to 5 p.m. Call 206-296-7387 (PETS), or email pets@kingcounty.gov.
