Loyalty is the most valuable quality of this breed. The story of the dog Hachiko 10 years waiting for his master is the clearest proof. Besides, they are also extremely brave. Fear almost does not exist in their instincts. They are ready to attack many more powerful opponents to protect owners and territories. Akita’s strong body, muscular strength, enduring stamina combined with the brave, devoted, loyal, helped Akita have a high position in Japanese society.
