The purpose of this thesis is to show and explain about the loyalty of Hachiko which has waited for his master for 10 years and other Hachiko‟s speciality as an Akita breed.

They express their gratitude to his master who had treated them well. Akita is a dog breed that has a tremendous loyalty, discipline and responsibility, because in fact they are not dogs to be maintained but the dogs used for fighting and hunting.
