Ako is a wonderful girl, looking for her forever home. She shows typical Akita behaviours and is an independent lady, although she loves grooming in short bursts which she will need a lot of! After a while, Ako does become more affectionate but she still likes her own space. 

Out and about, she walks nicely on lead most of the time but can be strong if she sees wildlife. She doesn’t get on with other dogs but does cope walking near them at a safe distance so is able to walk in most places. She is happy to wear a muzzle to keep herself and others safe. 

Ako can be playful when she wants to, she is very comical when she play bounces and zooms around the paddock! She would love a secure garden to call her own. After a play or a walk, Ako settles nicely with a Kong or a chew so when settled into a routine, she should be happy when left alone for short periods. 

Ako can live with teenagers and will need to be the only pet in the home.
