Son had a pair of them, the bitch would kill and bury every strange dog or cat that entered their yard. Just his experience with Akita's. Cheers NC

Land of milk & honey, for some...


Buy a Smithfield or a Heeler, unless you just want to impress people.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Too risky. A barker would be a better choice. You could get yourself a neat small dog that would either warn you or ward off some intruder. Try a Border Collie and buy a couple of pistols to have around the house.


Good advice ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Everyone's needs are different but I won't have a dog that bites. I just want em to wake me up so I can address the problem if there indeed is one.
My Mountain Cur doesn't miss a thing and acts like she'll take your arm off but shes harmless. I do however think she'd bite someone in self defense.
