Akira is our mischief baby. She loves to attack Kuma, he is her play buddy. From a very young puppy she fetches balls and deer antlers. She loves to howl especially when she has a toy in her mouth. She will also howl at you just because she can. She is turning into a very pretty lady with all her coloring.
Akira and Shika is our other set of sisters.
We soon realized how smart and attentive Akitas are; they watch birds and airplanes in the sky and follow squirrels through the tree tops. They watch what you are doing and try to learn on how to do it. They are problem solvers. They are super easy to train along with being very loyal to their family.
We have found that all our Akitas are super easy to house break, with learning in just a few days.
SHIKA OF WICKED ANTLER’S HAPLOGROUP
A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.
SHIKA OF WICKED ANTLER’S HAPLOTYPE
Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this rare haplotype occurs in dogs with Asian ancestry.
Akira of Wicked Antler has two healthy alleles at SOD1 and is unlikely to develop DM due to mutations in this gene.

A disease of mature dogs, this is a progressive degenerative disorder of the spinal cord that can cause muscle wasting and gait abnormalities. Affected dogs do not usually show signs until they are at least 8 years old, where the first signs of neural degeneration appear in the nerves that innervate the hind limbs. You may notice your dog scuffing the tops of his or her hind paws, or walking with a hesitant, exaggerated gait. In advanced cases, lower motor neurons are also affected leading to weakness or near-paralysis of all four legs and widespread muscle wasting. Given the advanced age at the time of onset, the treatment for DM is aimed towards making your dog comfortable in his or her old age and includes lifestyle changes and physical therapy. SOD1 codes superoxide dismutase, an enzyme important in neutralizing free radicals and reactive oxygen species, both of which are produced as a byproduct of cell metabolism. If not neutralized, these are injurious to the cell and will cause premature cell death. The first system to show effects of this is the nervous system given the highly specialized and delicate nature of these cells. Please note that these mutations are reported to have incomplete penetrance: that is, while a dog with two copies of this mutation has a much greater chance of developing DM than a dog with one copy of the mutation, or none at all, other genetic and environmental factors will also contribute to whether your dog develops DM.
A genetic health condition indicates a genetic mutation that increases the risk that an animal develops a specific disease.
