Description

Akita Chow is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Akita and the Chow Chow. 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.

Reya the Chakita (Akita x Chow Chow mix breed puppy at 4 1/2 months old—"Reader is an absolutely gorgeous puppy inside and out. I had never heard of this type of dog before but it is amazing. Her grandparents are Chows and Akitas and her parents are both Chakitas. Her mannerisms are unlike both breeds and unique to her. She is smart, polite and incredibly friendly to both people and other dogs. I am hoping people take notice of these dogs. AMAZING!!"
