Hachiko movie

I learned that they are making a movie about Hachiko, the loyal Akita in Japan that waited at a train station for his master for 10 years even after his master died. An actor named Richard Gere is going to play the part of Hachiko's owner. If you missed my posting about Hachiko, check out my posting on April 1 titled "world's second most loyal dog". Akitas look a lot like Shiba Inus, except they are bigger and the face is a little less fox-like. The coloring and temperament are the same. Also check out this link about the movie. There are some shots of a cute Akita puppy that looks a lot like me when I was a puppy. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/international/2008/03/24/quest.canine.co.star.bk.d.cnn?iref=videosearch


  1. I can't wait to see this movie!! One of the puppy's in the movie, is from the U.S. but joined our Toronto Shiba Inu Meetup group - very proud owner!

  2. The puppy(ies) who plays Hachiko are actually Shibas, which angered many people.

  3. You have mentioned above that "world's second most loyal dog" as Japenese Akita.Then which Breed you would like to label it as "The world's First most loyal dog".Or even any incident that has happened if you're talking about a fact.
