Akita Peet is a mixed breed dog - a cross between the Akita dog breeds and the American Pit Bull Terrier. Smart, caring and loyal, these puppies have inherited some of the best traits from both parents.

The Pit Akita is also sometimes called the Pit Akita or the Pit Bull Akita. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and rescue services, especially considering how many pit bull mixes are in shelters.

These adorable dogs are quite adaptable and can live well in small homes with active city dwellers, although they are best suited for larger homes or families. If you are looking for a protective dog that will check your boundaries from time to time, warn you of any dangers and love you unconditionally, then the Akita Yama might be the right dog for you!

Peculiarities

  • Akita Pits are mixed breed dogs. They are not purebred like their Akita parents or the American Pit Bull Terrier.
  • The main colors of Akita Yam are cream, fawn, brown, black, blue and brindle. Sometimes their coat is monochromatic and sometimes mixed.
  • Akita pits have a high level of energy. Make sure your dog walks at least one good half-hour or hour-long walk a day, with a few good, active play sessions and shorter walks.
  • Akita holes shed easily all year round. This means they are not suitable for allergy sufferers. Fortunately, their coats are very easy to care for. A good brushing on a weekly basis will probably do.
  • Akita Yamas are incredibly loyal and love their people, including children, making them a great choice as a pet.
  • Akita pits can get along with other animals if administered slowly and calmly, and early socialization will help this go smoothly. Better if they get used to other pets early.
  • This mixed breed dog wants to please. If you can consistently train your Akita Yama, you will end up with a loving, loving and ready-to-please puppy.

History

The Akita Peet mixed breed dog may have existed naturally over the years, but breeders and designers began deliberately mixing Akitas and American Pit Bull Terriers in the late 1990s, probably in North America.

Both the Akita and the Pit Bull are known for their intelligence, desire to please, and dedication. By combining them, the breeders hoped to create a dog that could be both a pet and a watchdog. They continued to breed Akita Pit puppies as the demand for crossbreeds increased.

Although the mixed breed Akita Pit started out as a designer breed, some ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue teams.

Check your local shelters, look for Akita Pit rescue spots, or find out if certain Pit Bull Terrier breeds or Akita Rescuers are available as they sometimes take mixed breed dogs and find homes for them.

The size

Since the Akita Yama is a relatively new mixed breed, there are several standards when it comes to size. However, as a mix of Akita parents and American Pit Bull Terrier, you can expect medium to large Akita Pits.

Most of them weigh between 13 and 31 kilograms and are 40 to 58 centimeters tall at the shoulder. However, many of them may be smaller or larger than average.

Personality

Akita pit enthusiasts will not say their puppies are aggressive, as pit bull mixes often have negative stereotypes. But they will agree that they can be somewhat strong-willed.

Both the Akita and the American Pit Bull Terrier are smart and can definitely be stubborn. Luckily, as any Akita Pit owner will tell you, this mixed breed dog wants to please. If you can consistently train your Akita Yama, you will end up with a loving, loving and ready-to-please puppy.

Some Akita pits can protect their family members and may try to protect them from outsiders. Proper socialization and training is essential to keep your Akita Yama from becoming too protective.

If you're looking for a watchdog to tell you if something happens at night, you won't find anything better than an Akita pit.

Health

The Akita Pit breed is predisposed to some of the same conditions that the Akita and the American Pit Bull Terrier also experience. While most are generally healthy, some may be predisposed to some health problems, so it is important to maintain good care and get regular veterinary checkups.

Some of the more common health problems that Akita Peet suffers from include:

  • Elbow and hip dysplasia
  • Progressive retinal atrophy
  • Heart diseases

Care

As is the case with all dogs, you must keep up with regular veterinary Akita checkups in order to detect any health problems early. Your veterinarian can help you develop a grooming regimen that will keep your dog healthy. Akita pits are prone to weight gain and have high energy levels. Make sure your dog walks at least one good half-hour or hour-long walk a day, with a few good, active play sessions and shorter walks.

Check their ears daily for debris and pests and clean them as recommended by your veterinarian. Trim your dog's nails before they get too long - usually once or twice a month. They should not knock on the floor. Your groomer can help with this. You should brush your Akita Pit teeth regularly. Your veterinarian can instruct you on how to properly brush your dog's teeth.

When it comes to caring for your Akita Pets, your main concern is keeping their joints healthy. To prevent elbow or hip dysplasia, talk to your veterinarian about possible supplements or special diets your Akita Yama can use to support joint health.

Nutrition

The ideal Akita Fossa Diet should be formulated for medium to large breeds with medium energy. This mixed breed tends to gain weight if overfed, so you should stick to a regular feeding schedule and not leave food outside during the day. Be sure to limit their treats as well.

Coat color and care

The coat of Akita Pits is often a mixture of the coat and color of their American Pit Bull Terriers and Akita parents. The main colors of Akita Yama are cream, fawn, brown, black, blue and brindle. Sometimes their coat is monochromatic and sometimes mixed.

They usually have short hair, but they shed slightly all year round. This means they are not suitable for allergy sufferers. Fortunately, the Akita Pit coat is very easy to care for. A good brushing on a weekly basis will probably do.

Although they have a shorter coat, Akita Yamas can live well in cooler weather due to their dense coat. However, they should not be left outside in very cold temperatures, and there may be times when your Akita Yama needs a sweater or jacket. You may need to apply sunscreen to your ears, nose, and sensitive areas where there is less hair in the summer months.

Children and other pets

Akita Yamas are incredibly loyal and love their people, including children, making them a great choice as a pet. However, children should learn to play properly with a medium to large sized dog before interacting with your Akita pit. When administered correctly, Akita Yama can be an incredibly active companion for children.

When it comes to other pets, Akita Yamas can get along with other animals if introduced slowly and calmly, and early socialization will help that go smoothly. Better if they get used to other pets early. When administered correctly, they can become thieves with other dogs. They may have a hunting instinct with smaller animals like cats, but again, proper socialization can help prevent unwanted habits.

Many Akitas get along well with other dogs and cats, so it all comes down to training, socializing, and pranking.
