Species group:

Other name(s): Akita Chow

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Akita Chow is a cross between a pure Akita and a pure Chow-chow, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, in general the Akita Chow is a large dog with a thick coat that demands lots of grooming.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Akita Chow may present some challenges to inexperienced owners. You will need to be able to provide strong, consistent socialization to a strong-willed larger dog that may be capable of intimidating fragile or unconfident people.
