Q. Im looking for two akita puppies from a reputable breeder in this area. I live In Chattanoooga can you help please.

Answered By

A. Getting two puppies at once is never a good idea because if Littermate Syndrome (and no they don't have to be actual littermates). Pups close in age that are adopted together bond more closely to each other than their people. One generally becomes somewhat fearful, neithr pup reaches their full potential. A reputable breeder won't allow two to go at once.

You can look for breeders through the breeds parent club at www.akitaclub.org
