Akita Pits coats are often a mix of their American Pit Bull Terrier and Akita parents’ coats and colors. The main colors of Akita Pits are cream, fawn, brown, black, blue, and brindle. Sometimes their coats are solid, and sometimes they have a mix of colors.
They usually have short coats, but they do shed lightly year-round. This means they may not be allergy-friendly. Luckily, the Akita Pit coat is very easy to groom. A good brushing per week will probably do.
Even though they have shorter coats, Akita Pits can fare well in chillier weather, thanks to their dense coats. Still, they should not be left outside in extreme cold temperatures, and there may be times where your Akita Pit needs a sweater or jacket. You may need to apply sunscreen to the ears, nose, and sensitive areas where there’s less fur coverage in the summer months.
