Hachiko was such a heart warming story!! I have read most of the books and i cannot wait to see the movie!! Akita's are just wonderful breeds of dogs! I am not at all surprised they picked you for the puppy of the day today!!!!! Send truck loads of hugs and kisses from Shadow and me!!! (oh and by the way Hachi is going straight on my favorites list!!!)

WHEN DID THIS SITE GO COMMERCIAL?
Mar 9, 2010 kel7
Soo cute and sweet! I want to hug you!
Mar 9, 2010 KFontaine04
Im sad that this site is promoting this movie. What we DON"T need is more puppy millers pumping out Akita and Shiba puppies so people can run to their local pet store for them and then they will end up in Rescue and animal shelters. We see it all too often with the Shiba Inu and now they are going to drag the Japanese Akita Inu into that horrifying world...so sad.
Mar 9, 2010 allierho
Shibas and Akitas can look a lot alike, but Shibas are smaller. If you think this Hachi has to be a Shiba -- go look at some Akitas!
Mar 9, 2010 jlounder@ne.rr.com
When people adopt a puppy, they need to know they are giving 10 to 16 years of their lives to the little animal. They, like humans, need training, care and lots of love in order to live peacefully in the human world. I hope this little guy finds someone who understands the role of an Akita, and it's personality.

I am really not comfortable with the main content space on this site being used essentially for one long ad made to look like regular content. Please keep the advertising to the banners, guys.
Mar 9, 2010 cfraire
Hachi is a absolutely wonderful looking puppy. Enjoy every minute of Hachi as he brings you so much love and joy. He is a beautiful dog!
Mar 9, 2010 sarl6618
Lovely pup ! I love Akita. Saw the trailer and still not sure whether I can stand the sad ending.

Hachi, you are adorable. Your coat is so lush and I bet it keeps you warm. Cuddles and bikkies from Scamp's Grammy.

Why is the DP running promo's for movies? They did this when Marley and Me came out too! Great! Another breed people are gonna run out and get with no knowledge. Going back to dogster now...
Mar 9, 2010 kian
This is for one day. The movie is heartwarming to any dog lover, one I am excited to see. Shibas and Akita look quite similar as puppies.
Mar 9, 2010 puppyss

I already left my comment this morning expressing my deep disappointment about DP using this site for commercial purpouses. Ofcourse my comment was deleted! So much for free speach, ah?
Mar 9, 2010 3saavik
I read somewhere than an Akita will not get between a alpha male and an alpha female if they're in a fight.I never hear about kids getting mauled by an Akita.
Mar 9, 2010 Galorette
Of course it's an Akita, not a Shiba! The Japanese and American Akitas are of relatively distinct types - you see black masks, larger size, and more colors in the American ones and this sunset color in the Japanese ones (though of course some American breeders now breed for this type). I also hope the movie does not start an Akita craze. I love my Akita more than anything, but they are not easy dogs, particularly if they have a history of abuse or un-knowledgable handling. If this story inspires a few experienced dog-lovers to adopt a best friend from ARWNY or another great Akita rescue, though, that won't be a bad thing...
Mar 9, 2010 ruthie
Hachi is beautiful!! Not sure if this is a He or a She, but that face, with its wonderful expressions, is priceless.A very loveable, huggable breed. Wishing Hatchi many, many happy, fun-filled years ahead.

The banner at the top is OK, but the Daily Puppy should not be a movie promotion... Come on! I feel tricked into reading that.
Mar 9, 2010 sac4563
OH, WHAT A SWEETHEART, HACHI IS SUCH A SWEET LOOKING PUPPY AND LOOKS JUST LIKE A TEDDY BEAR, I WOULD LOVE TO CUDDLE UP WITH HIM. HE DESERVES 11+ BISCUITS.
Mar 9, 2010 Beachdog
Hachi is cute. But I agree that the puppy of the day should not be used to promote movies. In fact, the site should be working to encourage movie makers to post a prominent comment at the beginning or end of dog-centered movies. The comment should alert viewers NOT to run out and get that type of dog unless they thoroughly check out its traits and needs to make sure those traits and needs will blend well with their family. It should further remind people that a puppy or dog is a forever companion and responsibility. Viewers should be told that getting a dog/puppy should be treated like bringing a baby into your home. You don't do it unless you plan to keep that family member forever and can afford to do so. Akitas are wonderful dogs. My two American Akitas have been like children to me. But they are stubborn, powerful, special animals that do not belong in just any home. If the makers of "Hachi" actually care about dogs, they should make that clear to the viewers of their movie. If they don't care, they don't deserve space on this website. Bless ALL dogs! Our world is SO much better because of them!

I've had the joy and privilege of owning three Akitas in my lifetime, all of whom were unique and irreplaceable. Hachi looks more like a Shiba Inu to me (considerably smaller in stature) tho' he's absolutely adorable and lovable. Akitas are my favorite breed, bar none. Bear hugs & lovies to you, Hachi - wish I could deliver them in person! :)
Mar 9, 2010 milton's mom
Hachi...a real hootchie-kootchie girl/guy? (Only those of you over the age of 55 will get that). I agree with Beachdog...too many Hachi's will spoil the hibachi. Disclaimers should be displayed over the opening credits of any animal movie.
Mar 9, 2010 tuxmypuppy
This dog is beautiful; the whole breed is! I love the story too, very touching.
Mar 9, 2010 fluffy ears

Mar 9, 2010 maizie's mama
Boy, am I a sucker! When I want movie reviews, I'll go to a different site. Very disappointing...
Mar 9, 2010 khgottesman
I was lucky enough to be the owner of an amazing Akita named Thor. Thor past away suddenly 8yrs ago at the age of 11 due to bloat. Akita's are incredibly strong and loyal. They are, in my opinion, not the breed for a begginer dog owner. They need a great deal of training and socialization to ensure that there power is directed in the right way. Akita puppies are of course beautiful, fluffy and cuddly. They do however grow quickly and before you know it, they can be pushing 90lbs, our was 115lbs and NOT over wieght. They are loyal, powerfull, and protective. In the right home, they are also, sweet, loving , kind and socialable. Our Thor was one of the most gentle and loving dogs I have every had the privledge to owm (or meet). When researching the breed almost 20yrs ago, I remember reading the story about this Akita. It is no doubt inspiring and shows what an Akita can be, with the right owners. Hopefully, people will fully investigate the breed before jumping into getting one after watching the movie. A reputable Akita breeder knows what type of individual can properly raise an Akita and will hopefully take that into consideration over dollar signs. They are a wonderful breed that I am thankful to have had the privledge of having, because it truely was a privledge. I can't wait to see the movie too.

I wish I had a dog like you!

I ABOSLUTLY LOVE U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I give you millions of biscuits!!!! :)
Mar 9, 2010 dog lover 100
I too, have been lucky enough to have an Akita whom I love with all my heart. As described above they are not a dog for the faint of heart, they are loveable and have personality abound however they require alot of socializing and they are very stubborn, so you need to spend the time to make them and keep them the great dog they can be. They would not be a great choice for someone who has never owned a dog before.
Mar 9, 2010 swarna
you have a teddy bear face, very beautiful,lot of people like you,i also like and love you long life to you.....
Mar 9, 2010 Jose
Your sooooooo cute i just want to give you hugs and kisses!
This dog is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for making him today's daily puppy. The movie is touching and made me cry but I am so glad I watched it. Dogs enrich our lives and are a gift from above and it is refreshing to be reminded of what unconditional love is all about.

I must agree with the people who have expressed their concern about promoting a film that will undoubtably encourage people to go out and get akita pups, the film is being released in many cinimas around England this week and people from Akita Rescue and Welfare U.K. are out in the cinima foyers trying to "educate" people about owning an akita, the film shows things like Hachiko walking off lead alongside his owner in busy streets, this gives the impression that all akitas are like that, when one of the common negatives about akitas is that have to be kept on leads as they "don`t do" recall:)My girl is a rescue, first owner "she grew out of being a puppy and wasn`t aggressive enough" second owner, kept in a kitchen all day and niether owner wanted her when the divorce came through, I am her third owner, she came to me at the age of two. At AR&W U.K. we don`t want to see more girls like mine in rescue due to this film, there are already too many waiting for forever homes:( sorry to preach but sweet that the film is I`m very much against it.

You are a spectacular Akita puppy! Whoever owns him is lucky to have him. I lost my Akita Jack 2 years ago and I have not been able to fill the void. He was the smartest, loyalest dog imaginable. I loved him more than anything. Fabulous breed!
