The Akita Chow is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Akita and Chow Chow dog breeds. Large, independent, and loyal, these pups inherited some of the best traits from both of their parents.
The Akita Chow can also be called Chakita. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you may find these mixed breed pups in shelters and breed specific rescues, so remember to adopt!
Akita Chows are quiet, and while they may not be overly affectionate, they are incredibly protective and loyal. Expert dog parents recommended! You will have your work cut out for you with training, as they’re known for being willful and can even be obstinate. The Akita Chow would make a great addition for an active family with older children or in a single person home, so long as they get plenty of exercise and will not be left alone for long periods.
They wouldn’t be suitable for an apartment but would love a house with a yard so they have plenty of room to stretch their legs. You’ll also need to invest a fair amount of time into their training. Akita Chows would make great walking, running, or hiking companions. This is a highly intelligent dog. Keep them stimulated and keep them content!
