Akita Dog Breed Puppy Ads
Breed Group: Working Group Height Male: 26-28 inches (66-71 cm.)
Breed Size: Large Height Female: 24-26 inches (61-66 cm.)
Breed Origin: Japan Weight: 75-120 pounds (34-54 kg.)
The largest of the Japanese Spitz-type breeds, the Akita, pronounced a-KEE-ta, is a powerful, solid, well-proportioned and distinctive looking dog. Strong and muscular with a flat, heavy head and strong, short muzzle. The Akita has a deep, broad chest and a level back. The dog is slightly longer than he is tall. The head is triangular shaped, broad and blunt. The stop, which is the transition area from the backskull to the muzzle, is well-defined. A shallow furrow extends well up the forehead. The ears are small and erect, carried forward and in line with the neck

A very dignified and devoted dog, the Akita is a powerful and protective pet that makes for a great watchdog. This is an independent and often strong willed breed, and this can make training difficult. However, this is also a dog that enjoys playing in the colder weather, although his exercise needs are by no means excessive. When it comes to other pets, the Akita can be dog aggressive with dogs of the same sex, and may also be aggressive around others smaller animals. This is a breed that is usually fine with children that live in household, but can be protective when other children are around and can also be aloof and stand offish with strangers.

The Akita has a very calm and watchful temperament; it is alert, faithful, and protective of its family, and it can bond very strongly with one person. The Akita is a very dominant dog, and it does not interact well with other dogs.

The renowned Helen Keller is credited with bringing the first Akita into the United States in 1937. The breed's popularity in the United States following World War II may be attributed to American servicemen of the occupational forces, who so admired the noble dogs that they took them home to their families. They were attracted to the Akita because of the breed's intelligence and adaptability to different situations.
Prone to hip dysplasia, thyroid both hypothyroid and autoimmune thyroiditis, immune diseases like VKH and Pemphigus, skin problems like SA and eyes (PRA, Micro, entropion) patella and other problems with the knee.
