Hi everyone! I added an Akita to our family just over 2 weeks ago. He is 21 weeks old now, and is small. His parents and his 5 other littermates we still all together, so I realized the size difference. His parents were both regular Akita sized. He was the second smallest of the 12 pups, the runt died at 2 weeks making our boy the smallest then. At the time we brought him home, he was 15lbs, he's 24lbs now. I would be happy with 70lbs+, Im wondering if he'll even get there? Any one with weight records with runts? I understand that runts can get even bigger than their littermates, but what Ive read is that they catch up weight wise around 4-6 months. Also, I read this online, "Akitas can perform some tasks that other dogs cannot, other dogs are permitted privileges that Akitas are forbidden." Anybody know of which tasks? ...My dog resume is a Lab/Chesapeake cross and a Shep/Akita cross Thanks in advance everyone!
