Hi, our family also bought a male akita from Sycamore Hollow as well. We believe our Akita is from the same litter as yours - we bought him in March 2012 for the same price ($1200). He is soon to be 3 years old - his ears never came up, period. He tore his left ACL in June 2014 and just yesterday, tore his right ACL. He also has mild hip-dysplasia. We love our dog, but as EXTREMELY disappointed with these "breeders". We have called several times about the ears, but no call backs. People like these have no business breeding an animal like this. Shame on them! We have grown up with Akitas and know this breed very well. These people obviously do not care about the well being and the value of the Akita. If we wanted to buy a "puppy mill" Akita, we would have gone to the average Pet Store. These people are running a puppy mill - inbreeding! DO NOT BUY FROM CHRIS OR BRIAN. Again, we LOVE our Akita and have done everything we can to provide him with a safe and loving home.

Reason of review: All of the above: Poor customer service, damaged/defective, $1,200 + vet bills.
Monetary Loss: $1200.
Preferred solution: I want other potential buyers to be aware of Sycamore Hollow. I want Sycamore Hollow to be shut down by the AKC. .
