All in the Family


March 9, 2010

Meet Hachi the loyal Akita! Akitas are a working breed originating in Japan. When a child is born in Japan, the family will receive an Akita statue signifying health, happiness, and long life! The Akita trademark is a plush tail that curls over the back and they are also known for a large, rugged and wolf-like appearance. The Akita inherits strong guarding instincts for their owners, and can be bouncy, energetic and strong-willed in temperament. These characteristics make them true companions that have a sense of humor, but are also fiercely protective of the people they love. Known for their dignified and courageous personalities, Akitas give true meaning to the phrase "best friend forever." The story of one such Akita, named Hachiko, has captivated dog lovers for over seventy-five years. Hachi: A Dog's Tale is based on the heartwarming, true story of Japan's most loyal dog who waited years for his master's return. Richard Gere stars as Professor Parker Wilson, a distinguished scholar who discovers a lost Akita puppy on his way home from work. Despite initial objections from his wife Cate (portrayed by Joan Allen), Hachi endears himself into the Wilson family and grows to be Parker's loyal companion. As their bond grows deeper, a beautiful relationship unfolds embodying the true spirit of family and loyalty, while inspiring the hearts of an entire town. Experience the beautiful story of Hachi: A Dog's Tale, on Blu-ray & DVD March 9th. Visit the site for more details -

OK this is VERY deceiving....the dog pictured here is a Shiba not an Akita like the real Hachi from the story. The story tells of an Akita but the movie uses a Shiba and THIS DOG PICTURED HERE IS A SHIBA!!! http://tokyo5.wor /
