, for what purpose you buy a dog. If to you working qualities are important — go to working nursery. If you want to shine at exhibitions — to the manufacturer who grew up a great number of champions. If the pet is necessary just, it is possible to take a healthy puppy with more gentle disposition.
American an Akita — healthy, strong dogs, and a sick species of puppies has to guard you. Do not take the kid if the following signs are observed:
the Watering eyes.
the Inflated tummy or leanness.
Rash on a stomach.
the Puppy scratches.
the Puppy moves hardly.
Puppies of the American Akita are similar to little bear cubs. A good puppy — courageous, with a tail, zakinuty on a back, the volume head, small dark eyes, small ears.

At a puppy of the American Akita ears get up by 4 months. Too large or thin ears rise hardly.
the Lobe of a nose has to be black (at a white dog it is allowed brown), but at a spotty dog or at an Akita with protochiny the nose can "be painted over" only by 4 — 6 months. However if you choose a similar puppy, then risk to win never at an exhibition.
If your purpose — exhibitions, it is not necessary to take also a white puppy: it is difficult to white dogs to win against painted. If a puppy spotty, not less than 1/3 cases have to be "color" (and it is better — more than 2/3).
Hair of a thoroughbred puppy of an Akita dense, direct, elastic, sticks out a hedgehog. No tows behind ears or on paws should be. But also very short wool — too not too good sign.
However often choose that puppy who pleased, but not the one who conforms to the standard more. And often similar choice — the most successful. The main thing — to find the dog, a soulmate.
