i recently watched hachiko the movie of a red akita with a white mask who is extremely faithful to his owned… i have decided to buy myself one with the same colors and features. Where can i buy a liht red akita with a white facial mask (puppy)…. and how rare are they?
All Akita Inu lovers were dreading this happening…"Oh I want the dog I saw in the movie!".
You are looking for an Akita Inu, not an Akita. They are considered two separate breeds in most countries, except in America and Canada which is why they are so rare, they are very expensive and there are only a handful of breeders in the US, waiting lists are usually a year long. They are not easy dogs and not suitable for everyone. You need a good grasp of dog psychology, you need to be firm but gentle. It’s essential that the dog respects you and decides to follow you, and a lot of this is to do with your personality too. You need to think long and hard about whether you are right for an Akita Inu and meet breeders and dogs and see how you get on.
