Stratus has grown a lot, and is filling in well. As the runt of the litter, she was bullied by her bigger siblings, which actually made her very tenacious. She is a tough-as-nails kind of dog, who is endlessly determined and indefatigable.
American Akita...absolutely beautiful!

The Swedish Elkhound was bred in ancient Sweden for hunting large mammals. It is today Sweden's national dog and is increasingly popular. It adapts well to urban environments as well as cold weather, and trains easily, but does require frequent grooming and exercise.
