I've looked at a LOT of American Akita breeders, and mostly, I see pintos and sometimes brindles. But, when I look at Akita Inu breeders (smaller, original dogs) I see a variety of other colours. I have yet to see a nice looking orange American Akita. But so many Akita Inus are of this gorgeous firey colour, which is one of the colours that draws me in most. And my other personal favourite, this brindle colouring. I have seen a couple of American Akitas that had similar colouring, but on the smaller Akita Inus, it looks much better IMO. So, to the other asian breed enthusiasts who might know! Is there a reason the colours are so split between the two? I also noticed I saw more roughcoated Akita Inus than American Akitas. Is this just a coincidence, and I'm missing a lot, or is there a reason for it?
