Toshi - 6 months by SafaiaKiba Toshi - 6 months by SafaiaKiba
A photo of my Japanese Akita, Toshi, taken at a professional photo studio. He was about 6 months when this was taken. It's my favorite photo of him :)

Now that my Japanese Spitz has passed away...I do feel like getting another pet and these pictures of your pet Akita look really cute. Maybe I should consider...

Only get an Akita if you truly know what breed it really is. They're not easy raise :)

Well, you managed to do it didn't you?...and that too with flying colours...I can tell!
You must be a really nice person. If you are affectionate enough to your pup then I am sure that he/she will respect you in return. Be it an Akita or any other breed.

I managed to raise Toshi mostly thanks to my many years of "research" of the breed and advice from professionals and breeders :) He's my first Akita, so there are still some "flaws" he and I need to work on but so far I've been told I've done a great job, enough to win first place in last years junior Akita show which cannot be won if the Akita isn't well raised :)

Toshi definitely respects me. It's easy to see, as I am the only person he listens too, and he does it well. He gets all the love I can possibly offer. He means everything to me :)

First place! wow!...that's really good. :D
I just that picture of your's with Toshi. I can tell that he has a lot of respect for you :happybounce:
I know raising an Akita won't be easy. Well, that's what my parents keep telling me till date, But I still want to try my hand at it.
I will try to give all the affection I used give to my dog Fincy.
I really miss him. It has left a huge void in my heart. Hopefully, the next dog I am planning on raising will be able to fill that gap. If not atleast a bit of it.

The way I feel, a dog can never be replaced as it is a true member of the family. I know how it feels to lose a dog :( An Akita will make a perfect companion as they are incredibly loyal, protective and caring of their owners and everybody they see is important to them :) This I noticed with Toshi. Whenever we go for walks in the dark, and if a stranger comes too close in a way that they appear suspicious, Toshi gets close to me, keeps his head up and looks at the stranger until they walk by us. Makes me feels pretty safe during our night walks I must say :)

My advice if you plan on getting an Akita, is that you talk to as many experienced people of this breed as you can. Trust me, it helps a lot. I did this, and Toshi turned out to be just like I had hoped for cause of this :)
