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.

While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Akita mix is getting a lot of DNA from a large, powerful protector breed that's utterly loyal to its owner.

Appearance / health:
Since it isn't a purebreed, there can be some variation in the appearance of the Akita mix, but you can expect a powerful and often beautiful dog.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Akita mix will need to be socialized by someone who understands how to be a kind, consistent alpha. An Akita mix that makes its own decisions about who's a threat could pose a problem.
