 An Akita Inu

Complete Care Guide

TikiHut Akita Rescue

Akita Inu Akita Inu of the Working Group is a Japanese dog, larger than the Shiba. The Japanese Akita is separate from the American Akita. These dogs can show aggressive tendencies towards small animals and towards other dogs, especially those of the same sex. These dogs are also very clean, loyal, intelligent, easily trained and unfortunately easily bored as well. They are very gentle with young children and babies. It has been found through recent DNA studies that the Akita, along with its smaller Japanese counterpart, the Shiba Inu are among the most ancient dog breeds in the world. During World War II, the Akita numbers diminished because of the lack of food supplies. Also, orders for the capture of all dogs, other than German Shepherds (because this breed was used for other war assignments), dog fur was used for the warmth in the Japanese Army uniforms. After the war, Akita's of the Working Group began to thrive again thanks to the efforts of the Sawataishi and other groups. Akitas were bred for their standardized appearance for the first time after the World War II. This is when the U.S. Servicemen serving in the western theater imported the Akita Inu back to the United States. The American and the Japanese Akitas have differences including one of the facts, that the Japanese Akita is heavier boned and they are a quite a bit larger dog than the American Akita.
