This is Butch we think he is a 1 year old Akita mix. Any thoughts?  He is about 25" and about 65 lbs I know that is small.

He definiately has the Akita head and 'radar' ears.  His coloring is almost collie-ish, though.  What a cute boy!  He has that dopey puppy look in the first picture.  I guess he's a bit small, Kana at age 1 was about 70 lbs...so he's not such a small boy.  Kana grew a lot during his 11-15 months...He just recently (in the last year) has hit the 100 lb mark (somewhere we thought he'd be sooner than now).  Kana is a Japanese Akita which is a bit different than an American.  White mask vs. black, a bit smaller (our last American girl was 115 lbs), etc. 

SO, hope this helps!  ;)

My groomer said that she thought he has cattle dog markings. I can see that but I was told on another forum that while a spoted Akita is not common it's not unheard of. I did some research and there is another breed between an Akita and a Sheeba that is a medium size, that it's gaining popularity because so many people dont have room for 120 lb dog but don't want a small dog either.

It really doesn't matter what he is, I still love him. The only reason I wonderd was because I was researching temperment. With an APBT that could have been an issue but it hasn't so far.

On what site did you see about this 'mid-size' Akita?  Just wondering!
