I just recently observed the puppy at the beginning if Hachiko, and when i look at Akita puppies, they don’t really look the same…. The puppy at the start of the movie looks more like a Shiba Inu puppy….
Would this observation be right?
What do you think?
Yes. It is a shiba Inu. I believe they used a Shiba Inu for that part for convenience. Because the Shiba Inu and Akita Inu look similar in appearance. However, with a Shiba Inu it will be able to look like a ‘puppy’ and play the role as young Hachi while being old enough to be trained to play the role.
