Who else here has Akita's, Rottweiller's, or a Akita/Rotty cross ? My fiance and I just got an akita/rotty cross 5 weeks ago. Her name is Jasmine and she is 13 weeks old ... we got her from the local SPCA animal shelter here in Edmonton, Alberta. Does anyone have any tips that could be useful in raising this breed ? I have always liked the 2 breeds so it's kind of ironic that I have a cross of the 2 breeds that I like the most. I realize both breeds can be head strong and independant ... there seems to be a wealth of knowledge here so your input would ne gratly appreciated. I'll get pictures as soon as I can because she's sweet lookin ... and a real character as well.
