#4 – Akita
The Akita is a large guardian and hunting breed from Japan. They are well-known for their faithful devotion towards their owners as depicted in the recent feature film Hachi: A Dog’s Tale. In this story, an Akita awaits his owner’s arrival on the daily train long after his owner dies, always hoping to see him again. This trait is still apparent in the Akita temperament today.
