Akita is a sensitive girl who can be shy and fearful with new people. It doesn't take long to get into her good graces, however. Once you do she's the sweetest, happiest, most fun-loving dog. Born in 2011, she's silly, playful and active.
Akita has a tendency to guard her food, and she does not do well with cats. But she is great with other dogs and makes a wonderful playmate for those her size. Do you have room in your heart for a shy, sweet and sensitive girl? If so, Akita would love to meet you.
