Who is Barbara Bouyet

"It is when we assume children and dogs are natural buddies, just like
 "Timmy" and "Lassie" that trouble begins.  We blind ourselves to the
fact that any dog can bite and any child can behave in ways that can encourage a bite - even in play.  Many bites are preventable through education of child, parent and dog owner."
  Safe Kids/Safe Dogs Project

 A man may smile and bid you hail
 Yet wish you to the devil;
 But when a good dog wags his tail,
 You know he's on the level." -

  Akitas in the Family

When looking for an Akita to add to your family, the most important thing to keep in mind is the temperament of your puppy is dependent on the breeder's integrity! You need to see the puppies interact within their litter (pack) and you need to see the parents.  The mother should be approachable and your breeder should demonstrate knowledge about Akitas.

Here are two websites that will guide you through your search for an Akita puppy:

Veterinary Partner
Akita Rescue Society of America

If you are open to adopting an adult Akita, contact the Akita Rescue in your area.  These people know the breed and have evaluated all of the dogs they have available for adoption.  You'll find a list of the reputable rescues at the Akita Club of America website.
