Katashi Of Wicked Antler


Katashi Makes me smile every day with her antics and quirks. She is our gentle  giant. She has fantastic coloring with grays, reds and brown through out her fur. Her fur is super soft especially her ears and forehead. She has a very playful demeanor.She loves to chew on her balls and deer antlers. She is very attentive to all things around her. 

She is one super mother and very nurturing to her pups. 

Very Intelligent


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.

Through Katashi’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.








Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.



The E haplogroup in general is not common, and this rare haplotype occurs most commonly in Akitas and Sapsali. It’s a rare find!

 The Paternal Haplotype refers to a dog’s deep ancestral lineage stretching back thousands of years, before there were any distinct breeds of dog. We determine the Paternal Haplotype by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since Katashi is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.  


 Good news! Katashi tested clear for 1 genetic conditions that are common in her breed. ClearTEST RESULT

Katashi has two healthy alleles at SOD1 and is unlikely to develop DM due to mutations in this gene.

Degenerative Myelopathy


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.
