ainu dog for sale

I brought in a beautiful female Akita from Japan last year. She is a

red with white face, is now 11 months old, almost 24 inches and weighs

about 60-65 lbs. If you are looking for a breed that is smaller than the

American Akita, think about one from an import line. There are a number

of very reputable breeders on the west coast (Kobun no Akitas, Aurora

Akitas, Northland Akitas, Hanko Akitas) as well as Akasta Akitas in Texas

(but beware the price: this kennel has brought in some of the top winners

from Japan so they are expensive and probably reflect the original price

of the foundation dog and <*filter*>) and KB AKitas in Illinois.

The only problem is if you plan to show, make sure the dog is double

registered AKIHO (Akita Inu Hozonkai-- the preservation organization based

in Japan) and AKC because the only AKIHO branches outside of Japan are in

Los Angeles and Taiwan. AKIHO is much stricter on color conformation

(only three colors acceptable) and head, whereas AKC emphasizes movement,

size and structure more.

I live in an area where there are A LOT of Jindo dogs. It is

supposedly illegal to bring in this dog from Korea but obviously they are

here. Some of my Korean neighbors have told me that some breeders are

mixing the Jindo with Chows and Akitas so be careful about the lines.

Also, it has been my experience that many of the Jindo breeders do not

take health precautions such as vaccinations, de-worming, hip x-rays, with

the dogs they use for breeding as well as the pups. The Jindo is a

fighting/guard dog. Like any breed, it depends on the personality of the

owner and the temperament of the individual dog. I've seen some

well-behaved, very loyal and sweet ones and some that get out and fight

with other dogs, attacking animals and kids. It is really aggressive if

not socialized and trained. I would wait until some regulation of

breeding practices takes place before getting a Jindo. With its

intelligence (or lack of owner intelligence) and aggressive behavior, it
