Huh, how about that! I can definitely see the Husky and some bully breed, but I can't say Chow is evident by looking at him.
Pit bulls have a high prey drive too but their bloodlines are so incredibly varied and the "pit bull" is actually a name for several different specific breeds, so I would not take that into account in his personality. Akitas have very low prey drive, I am not sure why this is in the breed discription in many places, but everybody who I have ever talked to that works with Akitas does not include this is a common trait.Akita and Pit Bull would have equally high prey drive as a Husky?
That's a funny joke, really. Best I've heard in a while.So far what I have seen online says that the Wisdom Panels have approx 90% accuracy

Most, if not all, canine DNA tests are owned under an umbrella company... a candy company we know as Mars. The tests are a joke. I've known people with purebred dogs whose test results came back as mixes that don't include the actual breed at all (case and point, a Golden from a reputable breeder came back as some Chihuahua x small terrier breed mix; no lab mistake). It's literally like paying random forum folk like us to tell you what your dog is and assuming we're right. These companies prey on unknowing people for money... it's sick.
Your dog is really adorable though. His head looks rather Akita-like, and I'd lean more towards the American breed rather than Japanese. The ear shape and size I would pin on some Shepherd influence, likely. I honestly don't see any Chow, Husky (aside maybe Alaskan, which is just a type of mixed breed itself), or Boxer in him. BBM is likely since they are freaking everywhere.
I use the term "pit bull" only when referring to the APBT. After all, that is the only breed with the term actually in the name. They and everything else derived from them or similar too them are all included under "bully breed."
Akita can actually have HUGE prey drive and are very prone to aggression issues later on in life. Many even attack and kill their own littermates they have lived with for their entire lives. They were originally bred as fighting dogs, much like APBTs, but were more or less dropped from the ring because of larger breeds like the Tosa so they ended up becoming guardians and "babysitters." All of the many Akita I have known and lived with were hugely prey driven and were often taken out to chase deer. They, like Huskies, are very stubborn and bull-headed and are extremely difficult to train.
