The Akita German Shepherd can get as tall as 28 inches while weighing up to 120 lbs, although there is a wide range with differences between the male and female.
Like their parent breeds, the Akita German Shepherds are large dogs. Male Shepkitas are usually larger and weigh more than their female counterparts.
Male Shepkitas are usually between 26 to 28 inches in height and weigh between 75 to 120 lbs. On the other hand, female Shepkitas have a height range of 24 to 26 inches and weigh between 75 to 110 lbs.
This mixed breed is slowly increasing in popularity in the United States because it combines the excellent features and traits of both parent breeds. You can easily spot them in their physical appearance, albeit individual dogs combine them in unique ways.
Akita Shepherds, unlike smaller breeds, typically stop growing at about a year of age. However, they keep adding weight till they are two years old.
It is common to see Akita German Shepherds with the face of a German Shepherd while retaining the tail of an Akita which curls upward and is plush. They have a muscular physique, and are strong with a dense double coat of medium length.
