Akita

A member of the working group of dogs, the Akita is a burly, spitz-type hound native to the mountainous regions of Northern Japan. With its dense, furry coat that comes in a variety of palettes, the Akita thrives in colder climates. A broad head and shoulders make for an imposing posture which is balanced in the rear by its iconic, curled-over tail. Quiet, hyper alert, and fiercely independent, the Akita is celebrated for its unshakeable loyalty to its human companion as famously demonstrated by the story of Hachikō, the most revered Akita of all time.

Male Akitas have a withers height between 26”-28” (66-71 cm) and a weight in the range of 100-130 lb (45.4-59 kg). Female Akitas have a withers height between 24”-26” (61-66 cm) and a weight in the range of 70-100 lb (31.8-45.4 kg). The Akita has an overall body length of roughly 36.5”-43.5” (93-110 cm), standing height of 31”-36.5” (79-93 cm), and a typical lifespan of 10-13 years.
