Aika is a two-year-old Akita with long legs and a big heart! Even though she can be a trouble maker she still loves pleasing people and will listen very well (if she wants to). I got her a year ago and I have never regretted it because she is such a special dog. I have always loved the Akita breed and she is a wonderful example of the breed. Even though she is not a lap dog she thinks she is and will climb up on the couch to sit on my lap. She is an attention hog--she never likes it when the other dogs get attention so she pushes them out of the way! She very loving and sweet and I will love her forever.
