Default No More Akita! :(

Unfortunately the puppy Akita I was so waiting to get for the past 2 weeks was born with a disease and died on its way from the breeder

It was a little upsetting to hear that from the store owner who is a friend of mine, but I think it may have bettered of my decision. He offered me another Akita batch, born on March 28th but I decided to ask him a few questions about guard dogs. He told me Akita is a great guard dog, but sometimes it gets attached to certain people and that can be a very negative trait of a dog. We spoke about it for a good 20 minutes, and I have switched the puppy I am getting.

I am now getting an 8 week old German Shepherd, in 5 days! I'm even more anxious to get him now!

That sucks. A friend years ago had an Akita that was an interesting dog and allmost landed them in trouble a few times but still a good dog. Better luck with the GSD.

My Rocky's a 15-week-old GSD. I got him when he was six weeks old.

They're a lot of work and extremely stubborn. But all in all, it's well worth it.

If you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to ask.

They're wonderful guard dogs and I wish you luck.

I'm sorry to hear about your akita. They are such beautiful dogs. Although German Shepards are just as beautiful.

I'm (confused) Were you getting your Akita pup from a pet store? And he died on the way to the store?

If this is the case then please read some of the responsable breeder posts, Back yard breeding can and does create litter after litter of unhealthy pups!!

Are you going to be getting the GSD from the same place?

As I say! I'm confused, doesn't take much at the best of times!

I'm confused too Doesn't take me much either.

Sorry to hear about the Akita though. I frankly, wouldn't want another dog for a bit to get over the dissappointment. I just hope your not jumping into anything too soon.

Good luck and the best to you!

Try a Akita Rescue program lots of good Akitas looking for good homes.

Try this

There is a few good stops to start, but just go to google and enter Akita rescue and you get lots of links. They have Puppies to, not just older "problem" dogs. I got one of my Amstaffs from a Dog Rescue and she is wonderful!!
