15 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Have an Akita Inu

Akita dog – a breed of dog bred in Akita Prefecture on the Japanese island of Honshu. The ancestors could be Chinese spitz-like breeds crossed with mastiffs. The Akita is one of the largest of the Spitz-like Japanese dogs. Initially, it was called “Akita Matagi” (translated as “good hunter”). For a long time, it was used for bear hunting and as a fighter. It is likely that the breed is very old. This is evidenced by archaeological research, which resulted in the remains of spitz-like dogs dating back to about the second millennium BC. Among other things, there are ancient drawings depicting dogs resembling modern Akitas.
