My guess is that if she is a rescue, she is a mixed breed.

My dad showed akitas for years here in the states. In the early nineties, there was a local breed group that was trying to breed longhaired akitas. In reality, they were crossbreeding akitas with Belgian groenendahls trying to get the longer hair. They were unable to produce longhair puppies without introducing another breed. I suspect that many "longhaired akitas" we see today were from such crossbreeding rather than simply breeding for the recessive genes.

As you are not in the USA, it could go either way, but I still think a mix is more likely.

If you really want to know, I recommend doing a dna test.
