Saw this beautiful Akita dog on one of my walks,don’t know his name, but the owner told me it is a young dog, just one year old and a very sweet dog!

The Akita is a large spitz breed of dog originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. There are now two separate strains: American, a/k/a “Akita” or “American Akita”; and Japanese, aka “Akita Inu” or “Japanese Akita”. Japanese history, both verbal and written, describe the ancestors of the Akita, the Matagi dog (Japanese:マタギ犬)(hunting dog, Bear hunting dog, Deer hunting dog), as one of the oldest of the native dogs. Today’s Akita developed primarily from dogs in the northernmost region of the island of Honshū in the Akita prefecture, thus providing the breed’s name.
