Great Guns· Banned
Well, I'm sure your dog didn't bite you on purpose. Your forearm just was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I see the Akita is a female. Not sure if that's significant or not. They're great dogs, and I don't see a lot of them around here. I'll say this, and your cousin will probably disagree: Akitas are notoriously dog-aggressive. Doesn't matter if they're male or female, they simply don't like other dogs as a rule. They are bred to be guard dogs and in Japan they were used to hunt bears. They are brave and dominant dogs, and sometimes that bravery needs an outlet and will manifest itself as dog aggression. Anyway, it's good you weren't seriously injured. Looks to be mostly puncture wounds...be glad the dog didn't hold on and start shaking your arm around.
