    I have a two year old Pit-Bull, Rottweiler, Akita, Blue-Heeler, Dingo, Wired terrier mix.
    I've had him since he was puppy. What are some things he may want to do because of his breeds?
    What are some of his traits due to his breeds?

    • He will probably have the personality traits of the most dominant breed in his DNA....with a few noticeable traits from the next dominate breed......it sounds like he should be an active fun dog...maybe liking hikes and romping the best. What have you discovered he likes to do?

    I am debating whether i should adopt a german shepherd pup or Akita inu . THere is a big difference between the Akita Inu and American Akita . Most of the websites i visited, had them put as 1 breed . I consider them dif …


    Would a German shepherd be better for me and my Family or an Akita inu (not American Akita) ?
    Whats an AKita inu's characteristics and personality traints and background info ?? (experts only)

    • I have studied Akitas for several years as well as own a half American half Akita Inu myself and know their history, temperament, behavioral problems, really almost anything you want to know. So I would definitely consid … him while he is eating and take away his bowl for a few seconds. If he growls or barks, use the top of your hand to gently pop him on the chin. As long as you don't do it hard, it won't hurt, it just feels very awkward!

    Here's a follow up question regarding the Akita Inu breed - in the movie "Hachi", the Akita seemingly mellow and cheerful, but a few Akita (the American breed) I know of in real life are actually quit stubborn, grouchy a …erican vs Japanese version much different in personality?
    yes, i should say "american version", understanding there is only one akita breed
    ha, JBFP - you are not stalking me are you? :) we'll see... thanks!

    • There is only one Akita - Japanese.

      They are aloof dogs, hard headed, but still great dogs.
