    When deciding to add a furry new member to your family, it's important to do your homework.

    Your choice may affect the lives of thousands of animals. If you purchase a puppy or kitten from a pet store, over the Internet or through a newspaper classified ad, you could be perpetuating animal cruelty. Puppy and kitten mills sell to pet stores -- reputable breeders don't.

    The BC SPCA rescues hundreds of animals each year from puppy mills across B.C. These animals are found in horrible condition, locked in small cages with no access to the outdoors. Puppy mill owners are only concerned with making a profit - they do not care about the welfare of the animals or how many lives their business will affect.

    The Cruelty Investigations department of the BC SPCA works tirelessly to close puppy mills, and to help the hundreds of neglected animals born each year.

    Your choice will make a difference.

    The BC SPCA has created several resources to help you make the right decision when choosing a new family member.

    Information sheets about puppy mills, making the BC SPCA your first adoption option, finding a reputable breeder and a story about one woman's heartbreaking lesson are available.

    Just make sure you buy from a reputable breeder. Too many people out there are puppy farming.

    Here are links that should be able to direct you to someone who is in it for the breed rather than a quick buck.

    For a sobering look at the pedigree dog industry, watch the UK documentary 'Pedigree Dogs Exposed.'

    I would ONLY get an Akita if you have a big, well fenced in yard that the dog has access to at all times (doggy door into home), get's regular walks and you are willing to put a lot of time and effort into proper training. Akita's are incredibly dogs but should not be lumped in with most "pet" dogs. My 2cents.

    I want the dog for companionship and as good guard dog. I will be taking it for extensive traing. I have done alot of research on the breed and know all about them. Also i am Japanese.

    Being Japanese has bugger all to do with why you should get a particular breed of dog. If that is one of the reasons you are using to get an Akita, all the more reason why you should not. That is the kind of reasoning that makes all sorts of problems with dogs and dog owners.

    Asian dude, if you haven't owned another dog before I would advise you to re-consider. If you have then I retract that remark. They are terrific dogs (not sure why Tripper says there are many "better" dogs...or what makes a better dog). But if you are not a previous dog owner this is not good for a first dog. If you do end up getting one I hope it works out well and you do your research for both yourself and the dog.

And yes I know all are different but others I've met have a strangeness about them. Again just my opinion.
    I figured just opinion....just wanted to clarify. I also would chose a Mastiff or Rotty or a number of other dogs before an Akita. Pretty familiar with the breed (Japanese Akitas, not so familiar with American, or the differences) and there were definitely some agro issues that were unwanted. I've only ever met one group (all same owner, extremely well trained) that didn't seem to have any issues...as you mentioned or with killing neighbours pets etc etc.

    Dogs are a very personal opinion so it's hard to sway someone despite knowledge and experience...hopefully it will not be a mistake if he does get one as that is a dogs life and potentially other animals lives/injuries etc that it could be at the cost of.

    Specially because most of the Akita's here are American Akita's, not Japanese...yes the breed began in Japan...but really, silly reason for getting a dog. Maybe you'd be better suited to a Shiba.
