Good Luck Akita

The Akita is a large dog breed that originated in Japan from a line of dogs on the island of Honshu in the Akita prefecture. The Akita was seen as a tough, sturdy, and devout dog whose long legs and large muscles enabled it to easily travel through deep snow and across mountains. The Japanese people viewed the Akita as a good luck charm and a symbol of health and well being. In fact, if someone was having a baby or if someone was feeling ill, a small Akita statue would be sent to them for luck instead of a more traditional gift of flowers. The Akita was quickly set aside for the royals and wealthy families of Japan. The dogs were dressed in fine jewels and given fancy foods. The Akita is most known for its fluffy double coat that features a course undercoat and soft top layer. Click for more details from your veterinary clinic Tampa, FL.
