I was really sorry to discover that Carol Laubscher passed away last year. My condolences to her family and friends. We have a 2nd generation male from Raja. I would like to find out if any other breeders have descendants from Raja. I heard that all of Carols dogs and semen samples were sold. If anyone knows of a breeder that has dogs from raja lines please let me know. Our male(Son of Noble from Kuroi Kao) is a phenomenal Akita and represents the breed very well.
