Where did you get her? Reputable breeder or byb? Papers?

If you didn't go to a reputable breeder, with papers included, then it's an 'akita type' and your guess is as good as ours as far as if she's pure or not. She could just be not well bred and so not the typical 'look' most are used to seeing too. It happens. Or she's just an oddball from a reputable breeder, which is why not all pups from the litter are considered show quality.

In either case enjoy your pet, I'm sure she's a great dog.

yeah she has no papers. I never saw her parents or siblings. My sister in law bought her from a random person off of craigslist.

Yep, as whats been said above, without papers, you're the proud owner of a mutt!

Here's my "purebred boxer" (as written on his surrender papers to the shelter where I adopted him):


The people who surrendered him really thought he was "purebred". Except he's several inches taller than any boxer I've met, and he actually has a snout...

Here's my "purebred Pitbull" (also, as per previous owner on her surrender paperwork):

She's a lean 80lbs and considered a "Pitbull" enough that she's muzzled in public, even though she's mostly toothless.

Anyone who is buying something, expecting it to be a "purebred", without seeing proof, papers and parents is risking disappointment.

Your girl is really cute though, and I'm sure you're crazy about her, regardless!

Looks akita to me, too. I recently learned that American akitas and Japanese akitas are different and have different registries, so maybe she's more Japanese bloodlines than American. Supposedly they are smaller and don't have the white markings. I don't see anything other than akita, though.

Looks like a pet bred Akita to me. I do not see anything Belgian-y at all.

The picture has been changed, in the new one don't see Belgian either. I also don't see a wet dog of questionable age anymore.

I see a typical BYB American Akita. That goes for both dogs.

As other have said, looks all Akita to me, just out of standard.
