Hello from Pablo

Japanese Akita, 3 years old

🌆 City dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Pablo is...

How gentle he is to play with us and how loving he is. He also does not realize how big he is and thinks he’s a baby.

The biggest challenge with Pablo is...

How strong and big he is.

The most surprising thing about owning a Japanese Akita is...

They are not as dominant as they say they are. They say interact well with other dogs if they are trained correctly.

What I wish I’d known about Japanese Akitas is...

Their breed is unique, and rare. So most vets don’t have much experience with this breed. For example, Akitas should not have surgeries or blood transfusions due to their type of blood, it could be really dangerous for them, or even deadly.

Did you know?

The most famous Japanese Akita was Hachi, the loyal companion of a Tokyo professor Eizaburo Ueno. Each day Hachi would accompany his master to the train station and would also be waiting for him when he got back from work. On 25th May 1925, Professor Ueno died in his office but for the next nine years and until his own death, Hachi made the lonely journey back and forward to the station waiting for his master who never came. There is a statue at the station in his memory.
