Set of seated and standing side elevation drawings of the Akita dog breed

A member of the working group of dogs, the Akita is a burly, spitz-type hound native to the mountainous regions of Northern Japan. With its dense, furry coat that comes in a variety of palettes, the Akita thrives in colder climates. A broad head and shoulders make for an imposing posture which is balanced in the rear by its iconic, curled-over tail. Quiet, hyper alert, and fiercely independent, the Akita is celebrated for its unshakeable loyalty to its human companion as famously demonstrated by the story of Hachikō, the most revered Akita of all time.

Dogs are domesticated mammals of the Carnivora order. Descendants of wolves, dogs are the first animals to have been domesticated by humans. Dogs are bred for particular physical and emotional characteristics and are often referred to as ‘man’s best friend’ referring to their high degree of loyalty.
