The Akita comes from Akita Prefecture in Japan, where they were bred to hold large prey at bay for hunters. The Akita achieved international renown for its loyalty with the story of Hachikō, an Akita who would follow his master to work everyday. One day, his master passed away at work, but Hachikō continued to wait for his master for nine years, until Hachikō joined his master in the afterlife.
