    OMG she looks exactly like a dog my brother owned once. She was chow/german sheperd cross! Very pretty girl! You could call her foxy :)

    Actually Akita are large Heavier set dogs...originally bred to hunt bears,

    I own an Akita. So know a bit about the breed.

    This one looks like it could have some Akita blood, chow looks prominent as well. Any Spitz type dog really based upon her ears, shape of face, and how she holds her tail.
    When dogs start crossing its hard to pull out breed based on size, as the genetics will become "washed" out, so must look more on the traits such as hair, eyes, ears, tail set etc.

    Whatever she is...she is adorable

    I wouldnt say the dog is a chow mix because of the tongue. Over 30 pure breeds of dogs have spotted tongues.

    Airedale, Akita, Australian Cattle Dog, Austrailian Shepherd, Belgian Sheepdog, Belgian Tervuren, Belgian Malinois, Bichon Frise
    Bouvier de Flandres, Bull Mastiff, Cairn Terrier, Chinese Shar-Pei, Collie, Cocker Spaniel, Dalmatian, Doberman Pinscher,
    English Setter, Eurasier, Fila Brasileiro, Flat-coated Retriever, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Gordon Setter, Great Pyrenees,
    Irish Setter, Kai Ken, Keeshond, Korean Jindo, Labrador Retriever, Mastiff, Mountain Cur, Newfoundland, Pomeranian,
    Pug, Rhodesian Ridgeback Rottweiler, Shiba Inu, Siberian Husky, Tibetan Mastiff, Thai Ridgeback



    these are all breeds that can have spotted tongues.

    anyway, now that that's out of the way. Its defiantely a spitz type breed. Looks most like a Shiba Inu to me.

    I used to work at my vet's office and all the Akitas that came in were on the small side. I know they can be big, but with everything out there you can get variations in size. One of my neighbors also has one and he is on the small side as well.
