Description

The Akita Shepherd is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Akita and the German Shepherd. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Jack the Akita Shepherd puppy at 5 1/2 months old—"We added this little guy to our family by way of the SPCA, and we are so lucky to have been in the right place at the right time to be able to adopt him. He was the easiest dog to train in any of my experience, and his temperament is extraordinary. Also I have always admired a brindle coat and this pooch wears it quite well."
