Seriously, pretty puppies you guys have. Love to see more!
Um Akita are pretty vicious. I can't come close to my cousins (i only see him a couple times a year for the holidays) The Japanese bred them to hunt bears. They have incredible jaw strength. While they are a bit fuzzy and cute looking, I'd hate to have to tangle with one.

It'd actually be one of my top choices for a shtf breed.

dogs will all be eaten if shtf, in short order. Geese are NOISY, and the last thing you want is noise calling in your killers. If your dog barks, he's a liability.

I had never heard that term before (and don't know what the symbols mean) but I see now, as did you.

Thanks

They will also alert to trespassers.
Those things are like 2 year olds. A buddy of mine had 2. If they was not running into everything and bouncing around like ping pong balls they were..... Well come to think of it that's all they did.

Also if you want a big dog look at an Anatolian Shepherd. Damn.
Pits were actually bread to work on farms. Regardless to what people think now.
