It sounds like you're going to be like Mika. She is absolutely beautiful and a wonderful family dog,but she is my husbands girl. She basically stopped growing around 8or9 mos. and never got any bigger.She is very fine boned and takes more after the Japanese type although she is an American Akita. Kai on the other hand has about a year left to fill out he is just going to be 2 on the 25th of September. He has been at his 28inch height since he was just about a year and is on the thin side for now,but still gaining weight so we know he just needs time to grow into himself. He is sweet,loving,and affectionate on his terms.When he wants to cuddle he will seek you out otherwise he is very independent.He is Mommy's boy. So even nutured in the same house the same way they are very different.We love both and wouldn't trade either for the world,we just love and accept them for them.
