    Gracie is a very calm Akita girl who is well mannered. We think she had a male owner before as she really gets excited around men. She is house trained and has learned the sit command. Walks are her favorite part of the day, and she gets very excited and playful when the leash comes out. Then she settles in for a nice walk. She was very scared when she first came to us but was still able to give us all kisses. We think she is about 6-7 years old and is a real gem.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Arizona
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Arizona if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
