Eh, I see a lot of Husky in him. Akitas have shorter, thicker muzzles, shorter, thicker ears are just... thicker in general

Man, you've got your work cut out for you. Husky and Akita. Wow.

He's handsome, but jeez. I work with quite a few huskies, and it's enough to make me never, ever want one. Good luck with your guy.

He's surprisingly not like a normal husky or Akita would be. He's only 3 months but he's so **** well behaved and friendly. Makes me keep hoping he stays well behaved.

I owned a couple huskies and I loved the breed. My first one was so well behaved. To my memory, she never chased anything she wasnt supposed to. Loved cats and gerbils (and not for dinner) and let my niece crawl all over her.

My second husky was more quiet and reserved. Never hurt a soul though.

I love the husky breed. You seriously need a lot of patience and a huge sense of humor. And a double reinforced fence, because they can jail break in a heartbeat. They also have no homing sense. Once they are out, they're gone (although my second husky was fairly good and coming back when she got out).

I don't have much experience with Akitas...they are pretty though and I hear they can be a handful.

Maybe get him DNA tested to make sure what mix he is?

I wouldn't pay a pet store for a mixed breed though. That's what craigslist is for.

Yep I know shame on me for buying from a pet store. I just saw him and instantly fell in love. I know he was a puppy mill puppy. I've also rescued all my animals and even got a few from CL. I just saw this dude and fell in love. I do plan on having him DNA tested. Not that it matters what he is now but just to be curious.

I think this pretty much summed them up.

My girl can chew through chain link, dig under cinder blocks and jump 6 foot in the air from a standstill, climb trees, walk on roofs.
She can also open doors and gates (this is all self taught). I took her to a huge park once, completely fenced by 12 foot of chain link and rollers with no holes or loose spots. I let her run with a 12 foot leash behind her. Instead of running she first checked the entire perimeter for holes or loose spots and when she didn't find any she found the gate farthest from me and went to work on flipping up the latch.
Definitely didn't know what I was getting when I got her. I have learned a lot about them because I've been forced to.

Entertaining breed, but not something I'll be doing again.

My husky isn't like what anyone has described. He will not leave our side if he wasn't on a leash he wouldn't go anywhere.
Also, I own a pet rat and my husky loves her to death.

Everything I have ever read about huskies says exactly what a couple you have described. I must have been so so lucky.

Turbo is a cutie!

Personally, I love huskies as a breed. I am a dog groomer so I see a lot of them. I've dealt with bad tempered ones but that is not their breed temperament. Poor breeding and bad handling.

Overall though, the ones we get are extremely friendly but bad on the table. I always recommend heavy socialization and good training to new owners with these types of dogs. I've only worked with two akitas on a regular basis and they are very well behaved because they come so often. Sweet boys.

I have two Siberians myself. My female has a higher prey drive than my male. She stalks/chases him and takes him down. She is needy and more delicate. Very energetic and will run if off leash. My male is laid back and an easy keeper. Stays by you off leash. Both are very friendly, outgoing, and great with grooming. :) They've also been with birds, cats, small dogs, and my ferret who is always out. They have never killed or hurt another animal. They will chase squirrels but listen to my commands and have never caught one. Not that they couldn't. ;) Skylar, the male, cornered one once and just watched it. Lol

Though I won't be getting another. I dislike coming home after grooming dogs all day just to have to brush my own. If not I leave hair at work just to come back to more hair. Also, with the amount of training I put into them, I'd have a VERY well behaved lab or golden. Lol

Here is my male as a pup:
