Not sure where you are getting this Akita from -- but you should have some background - whatever rescue group he is coming from should have tested him around kids, other dogs, food, toys, treats, in a house with house noises, around cars, etc before putting him up for adoption...so they can give you a good knowledge of what you are going to be dealing with. No Akita should ever be adopted out without first learning if there are any triggers in that specific Akita -- it can be a disaster unless you know ahead of time. So please make sure he has been properly evaluated by whoever is adopting him to you ahead of time -- its why way too many Akitas get returned to shelters or to groups because they aren't properly evaluated first. Just a word of caution!
Feel free to join our Akita-Adopters group on the Yahoo groups page if you'd like - we have over 300 Akita adopters there from around the world who have adopted from all kinds of situations -- we are always happy to help with questions, etc.
Its only for people who have adopted their Akita -- shelter, rescue, family member, stray, etc -- its a fun group & its coming up on its 10th year of being in existence!!
Hope all works out and we get to see pictures soon!
