Nikko the Akita is an amazing and loyal dog. He loves spending time with the family and acting like he is a human himself. He eats when we eat, sleeps when we sleep and if there is a family photo he hops right into the middle. Although Nikko is now a middle-aged 7 year old, he acts no older than the 3 month puppy he was when we got him. Nikko is a part of the family and knows it.
