Hello everyone, I'm looking to adopt my first dog, and I've been interested in the AKK ever since I read an article in Dog Fancy on the breed. Though this dog will be the first I've owned, I have been around animals all my life, including birds, horses, hamsters, cats, dogs, etc. This summer (which is when I plan to adopt, I plan on staying home so I will be with the dog constantly and be able to exercise it. I also have a fenced in yeard. I was just wondering how friendly the breed is, as I am definitely looking for a companion, and also how difficult it is to maintain and care for. Please give me all the details you can. Thanks!
