Raiko, it is better to raise any two dogs seperately even from the same litter. Get one then a year and a half or two get the second. Train and socialize A LOT with humans and other animals especially the first year. I've even seen poodles with "kill" instincts (a black female year old bitch from a litter a local breeder bred and raised killed a smaller dog in the family) so definately look at the temperment of the parents. Even with my two boys they are always supervised. Sam was fixed at 5 months (he is an Alpha male and moody - 68 pds) and Buoy (10 pds) is intact and is proud. He thinks ALL the girls are his.

I managed a humane society in my hometown for 4 years. We obtained a purebred Akita whom the previous owner dumped in a neighborhood near the shelter because he didn't want to pay our $30 surrender fee (which would've helped us feed/care for his cast-off dog!)

The neighbors brought Pugsly to the shelter after they caught him running loose. We found an excellent home for him with a couple who ran a guided hunting business. They loved him and took great care of him for about a year. Then we received word that the couple had to have Pugsly euthanized because he had attacked and killed a guest's doberman without obvious provocation.

Pugsly was a SWEETHEART with humans, but had a severe problem with other dominant dogs. He wasn't at the shelter long enough for us to have identified this problem - the dogs he played with at the shelter never triggered any agression issues. We were heartbroken that this had happened, but the adoptors were very realistic about it and took complete responsibility for the incident.

I know I would never want to put an Akita with my current pack - just to be safe. I think they're beautiful creatures, but I wouldn't want to put my dogs in jeopardy. Good luck with your decision and research.

So I don't think instinct can be bred out of a dog that's bred to do something.
Yes I agree it is very hard to breed certain instincts out for example show apbt ( american pit bull terriers) have been bred for show and not fighting for years but some are still dog aggressive.

The same thing I see in a lot of herding dogs my GSD would herd dogs and she never seen a sheep in her life. She naturally guarded and protected as well.

as for Akitas one of my friends breeds them/ used to. He is also friend with the korean jindo club president, so if you would like his number and would like to talk to him let me know he will tell you everything you want to know about akitas. Akitas are very dominate and should only be handled by experience dog owners who has owned another dominant breed.

Well regardless of what other breed if any I decide to adopt it wont be for a good year after I get my poodle. At which point If I end up wanting an akita I will ask you for your friends number, but at this point it looks like I wont be getting one. They don't seem like one would get along with a poodle.

Ive been looking around on akita forums and alot of people on there say they have other dogs in the house with their akita, but it took TONS of socilization, training, and TONS OF DEDICATION.

And since the other breed would not be purchased from a breeder, but adopted from a shelter instead. So what ever dog from there 'grabs me' I will probably end up fostering first to see if the two dogs get along.
