Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization

Akitas are so gorgeous! One of my favorite dogs to look at, and I tried twice to find one with a good temperament. Unfortunately, it seems to be a breed thing, or maybe just terrible luck - training was nearly impossible with these guys. They like to do their own thing and are very playful, but also their own creature. Too much attention and they seem to be annoyed, rather be left to their own devices.
Care is really simple as their coats tend to take care of themselves, and they always seemed to be impeccably neat creatures - always self-grooming and prepared.
