Anyone has Akita and Basenji?

Hi all,

Just curious: does anyone have or have ever had a basenji and an akita at the same time. I have both (and boxer, too) and they are just awesome together. I have not heard or read about anyone with basenji and akita at the same time. We got akita first and she was about 5 months old when we got our basenji. The basenji was already almost two, so she raised the akita puppy. She is still the mama of the three, although she is the smallest one. She takes care of the akita who is at least 6 times the size of her! They play together and basenji takes akita down!

Yes we have an akita whos is 6 years old and our B (Jaycee) whos is almost 9 months old. How big is your akita ours is 135 to 140 lbs. This is our 3rd one over the years and Sterling is a long hair,

Your two look very nice together. Sterling and Jaycee play together but Sterling has the basement while Jaycee has main floor he has to much hair. Sterling come upstairs just does not get to stay. He's happy whole basement with our daughter and her cat DB.

My akita (Mishka) is about 95 pounds, although her dad is about 130lbs. All of our dogs are primarily outside dogs, although basenji spends much more time inside than the other two. And when it's windy/rainy/cold in the winter, all of them sleep inside, although the akita does not like it inside much.

Cute pic of the both of them! 🙂 We haven't got an Akita, but our neighbours do. Tillo and her get along very well.

I still over see and watch when Jaycee and Sterling are together but I will say may god help the one that would touch Jaycee. Akita's are very much family dogs and love there family all two and four legged ones.

Great pictures and such a love together.

As you can tell, Lana (the 😎 is the alpha dog!

So neat were Lana has her back foot standing on the front foot of the akita. I am holding you down and then the hug with my paws was next. I really like that picture.

Thanks! You should see Lana walking all over Mishka (the Akita) when she got her pinned down!

I just love that you have those two because I love my akita as well as my B. I have had akitas for a long time and they to are special in there way.
