I have seen other posts for other breeds but none for Akitas! I have also seen photos of others' Akitas, so I know there are others out there.
Post your Akita photos! They can be American Akitas or Japanese Akitas. You don't even need to be the owner.

Let's show everyone why they say "Once You Own An Akita, An Akita Owns You Forever."

Post the:
Name
Breed - American or Japanese
Age
Weight

I'll start with a couple of our bear...

Here is Maximus Decimus Meridius (that his is his actual registered legal name), but we call him Max, Fatimus, Poopbutt, Boo-bear, and Maxy-mus
American Akita
4.5 yrs old
120lbs

I love the photos that show their signature stance and tail.

I wish that I had a photo of the first akita I ever saw. It was in Japan and the akita was an enormous male and must have weighed well over a hundred pounds. His leash was a section of hemp rope that was at least an inch in diameter. At the other end of the lead was a tiny Japanese guy, dressed in a yukata robe and sandals. The guy probably weighed less than the dog! It was quite comical but didn't take away from the magnificence of the dog!

Akitas are an amazing breed. Truly unlike any other bread. They can get up to 150lbs, depending on their parents. Ours is sitting a little heavy at 120. They are very attached to their owner/s. Sounds like that Akita was socialized well and trained properly. The fact that he was not dragging him down the road is a sign of a good owner!

2 beautiful Akitas there!

Akitas are a breed of their own. We will definitely always own one!
