Akita/lab mix

Postby keepsmiling » Sat Apr 27, 2013 2:09 pm

Hey, this is my Akita/lab mix Heartly. He was born Dec/06.
While he favors the lab with a short coat, you can see when he was a pup he favored the akita more, then went through the yearling stage where he was slender and looked more lab-like, and finally his head filled out more block-like. What he lacks in akita looks, he makes up for with akita personality. He definitely has the stubborn recall problem...and we went through three trainers. :mrgreen: He is amazingly smart, plays like a cat with his feet, and is fiercely protective of me, and our family of critters. All animals outside are fair game for a chase though... but he gets along with all dogs.
Here is Heartly-he is presently about 85 lbs.

Your dog looks very muscular and strong! At the same time he looks sleepy.

Thank you. I think I just have a habit of catching him while he is napping. :icon-wink:

He's very handsome! I know there are at least a few akita/ akita mix fans around here. I like them myself. icon-smile

Thanks so much. He really can make a ton of fur..it's amazing. That is using a furminator, a great tool! He wasn't neutered until he was about 3 or so...took me that long to talk my hubby into agreeing. I guess it's a guy thing. :mrgreen: I think that helped to allow him to fill out before he got snipped.

He has a black heart on him. ;) That's really cute. Is that why he is called Heartly?

Thank you~ to the person who saw my photo was stolen and posted on CL in Atlanta. I wish I knew how to watermark them.

I think there are online sites that let you watermark your photos with their in-browser software. It's not hard. If you have a program like Photoshop you just put text or whatever over your picture and then turn the opacity down on the text.
