Akita puppies for sale in PA

The Akita is a large and powerful dog with a variable temperament requiring experienced handling. Originating in Japan the Akita was originally developed in the 19th century as a fighting dog. Some countries now regard the American Akita as a separate breed than that of the Japanese Akita, also known as the Japanese Akita Inu. Despite its size and sometimes willful and aloof behavior, the Akita makes a great family dog with its intelligence and affectionate loyalty.

The Akita has a double coat much like those of the other breeds of the Spitz or Nordic family. The color of the Japanese Akita is a distinctive red-fawn with white markings while the American Akita can be any color although typically the colors are fawn with black overlays and white markings.

Muscular, large and well-built, this strikingly handsome breed has a deep, wide chest and a well proportioned head with triangular erect ears and, in the American Akita, a dark face mask. They have a thick bushy tail which curls over their backs. The height of the Akita ranges from 23-28 inches and there weight can vary from 65 to 115 pounds with the Japanese Akita usually ranging smaller than that of its close American cousin.

The temperament of the Akita breed is alert and dignified, usually friendly and docile, and very courageous. They are affectionate and loving with its family but can be aggressive and willful if not trained properly. Care must be taken that their rules are set at an early age as they have a tendency to become domineering, especially with other dogs. With the right owner, the Akita makes an outstanding pet and/or guardian of the family.

The Akita (aka Great Japanese Dog)

The American type Akita and the Japanese type Akita are 2 different breeds, with rather different lineage.
While I'm an Akita lover of both types, they are for experienced owners.
The Akita Inu (not the American Type) are a national treasure of Japan.
They blow their entire under coat 2-3 times a year (even sometimes only once).
The rest you said is true of them however.
Need need a strong and self-assured owner who is familiar with dominant and strong willed dogs.
This dog should also be shaved or stripped during the summer months as you plan to keep him outdoors

    Wel im about to get an jap akita......but im not sure wat are the top kennels or top bloodlines of akita can any one tel me wat bloodline or kennels i shud look for?

    • I can tell you now that the top kennels are going to be looking for someone who has done extensive research on this breed. they are beautiful, large, powerful, unique animals that require a lot of care. they tend to be a … for a pet and not a show dog. there are many beautiful orphans waiting for good homes out there!!!

      it takes approximately 57-61 days for a female to give birth after breeding.

      good luck!!!
