Akita Inu Dog Photos and Information

Submitted By Shyam on 8 November 2015

The Akita is a large breed of dog originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. There are two separate varieties of Akita: a Japanese strain, commonly called 'Akita Ken' in Japan, 'Akita Inu' ('inu' means 'dog' in Japanese), 'Japanese Akita'; and an American strain, known as the 'Akita' or 'American Akita'. The Japanese strain comes in a narrow palette of colors, with all other colors considered atypical of the breed, while the American strain comes in all dog colors. The Akita has a short double coat, similar to that of many other northern spitz breeds such as the Siberian Husky, but long coated dogs can be found in many litters due to a recessive gene.
