Dog Literally Jumps For Joy When Owner Comes Home
Nothing is better than being greeted by your lovable pet after a long day of work. This adorable American Akita named Sophie is literally jumping for joy at the sight of her owner returning from work! Sophie clearly recognized her owner’s car from quite far away and was ready to greet her owner upon return from work. If we were the owner we would be just as glad to see our lovable dog after returning from work. In addition to these dogs being incredibly loyal and lovable, their breed has an incredibly rich and interesting history. How cute!
As shown in this video, Akitas are incredibly loyal dogs. They originate from Japan, and there are famous stories of Akitas being incredibly loyal to their owners. One dog named Hachikō, would greet his owner Hidesaburō Ueno at Shibuya train station every day after work. One day Ueno went to work, but did not return due to him suffering a fatal cerebral hemorrhage; however, the Akita named Hachikō, continued to go to the train station every day at the time Ueno’s train was supposed to arrive, for nine years. This shows how Akitas like Sophie are incredibly loyal to their owners and will always be waiting for them to return from work!
Sophie is an American Akita and the first of these breed arrived in America in 1938 when American activist Helen Keller was gifted two dogs by the Japanese government. After this, the dogs became loved in America due to their looks, loyalty, and their abilities to compete in dog shows. Keller was quoted in the Akita Journal stating that “I know I shall never feel quite the same tenderness for any other pet. The Akita dog has all the qualities that appeal to me — he is gentle, companionable and trusty.” American Akitas due to being bred with other American breeds are usually larger, whereas their Japanese counterparts are normally smaller and more fox-like.
This short video shows the loyalty of Sophie the American Akita as she jumps for joy when her owner returns from work. Sophie, being an intelligent, faithful dog probably knows when her owner will return and wait for her owner everyday not dissimilar to the famous Hachikō in Japan. American Akitas have a rich history mainly colored by their devotion, appearance, and abilities. Helen Keller the famous American activist loved the American Akitas due to their gentleness and compassion. I’m sure that the owner is just as loyal and loves Sophie just as much as she loves him. It’s so cute how Sophie literally jumps for joy at the sight of her owner. Incredibly adorable!
