Traits of the Akita
The breed originated from the island of Honshu, Japan, a rugged area with intensely cold winters. These dogs distinguished themselves hunting bear, deer, and wild boar, holding the game at bay for the hunter. The Akita forebearers were called matagi-inu, or “hunting dog.” In the late 1800s, the Akita was used as a fighting dog. In 1931, the Akita was designated as one of Japan’s natural treasures. The first dog arrived in the USA in 1937, when Helen Keller returned to the US from a Japanese trip. After World War II, servicemen also returned from Japan with the dogs as pets. In 1972, the AKC recognized the breed.
They are bold, independent, stubborn, and tenacious. Demonstrative and devoted to their family, they are reserved with strangers and may be aggressive towards other dogs. To keep them happy, they need a long run or brisk walk.
