I must have been very lucky indeed from what everyone describes a husky mix acting like. I have had two and both were absolute perfect dogs. They both had prey drive, but reserved it for mice and snakes out in the fields and hills. Never chased cats or any other animal deemed a pet. They are obedient and both loved kids to the point of standing between them and their own dogs. The one here now will lay next to a baby for hours just watching over it. Both dogs had very strong homing instincts and were/are very much home bodies. I personally would not have an Akita around having trained a couple of them. Very strong willed and disrespectful. Always looking for something to do other than what I wanted. Granted both of them were someone elses dog and I was helping them fix issues they were having. No doubt if I had raised them they would have been different dogs personality wise ;).
I realize part of that is the environment here. I am the alpha and no one disputes that. If they tried it was brought home to them in no uncertain terms that no arguing was allowed. I would have another one in a heartbeat.
Turbo is cute and Ii will be interesting to hear if he is full akita or not.
