Shika and Akira is our other set of sisters. Shika is a love bug and loves to have her belly rubbed. She loves to play with her sister and Kuma. She has some really great markings on her, her ears stand tall and her tail will be a tight curl. She also has a very personal demeanor and happy go lucky attitude.
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.
