Blue Moon Akitas is a small, family-owned kennel located in central North Carolina. We have been involved with Akitas since 1994 and what began as a simple bond with a special Akita named Zeus has grown into a successful breeding and showing program that has finished 6 AKC Champions in the past 4 years.  At Blue Moon Akitas, we strive to breed the perfect dog...one that will love its family unconditionally, protect its loved ones from any harm and embody all the characteristics of this noble breed.  We pride ourselves on breeding dogs with friendly temperaments, proper conformation and excellent health.


We invite you to explore our site and become better acquainted with us and our dogs.  All of our Akitas are treated as family members.  They are seen regularly by our veterinarian, are current on vaccinations and health checks and receive daily exercise and play time.  All of our litters are whelped inside our home and all puppies receive plenty of love and socialization.  Our extended family includes a Giant Malamute, French Bulldog, English Bulldog/Boxer, various strays, cats and horses.


2014 was a busy year for us, and 2015 has not been any slower. The birth of our daughter in March and the decision for Kaile to stay home means that we have downscaled our breeding and rescue programs. We hope to gear back up in 2015, please be patient while we update our website and get back in the swing of things. Feel free to stop by www.countrysideK9 to check out our newest venture, dog boarding.
