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.

All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Akita, you should bear in mind that you're getting DNA from a powerful, protective breed that must be socialized with care. The Akita is generally recommended to the single pet home, and the same is likely to be true of the Akita mix.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but an Akita mix is going to be a large, powerful animal.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. However, if the dog is mostly Akita, you need to be aware of the possibility that it will possess the Akita temperament, which can be challenging to all but the most experienced dog owner.
