My wife saw a couple of miniature donkeys in Bisbee last year and mentioned they'd be fun to have. Not sure if miniatures would effect the coyotes or not.

Yes, sir, JJ_BPK, the donkey would certainly be a great guardian. I understand they become possessive and have a low BS threshold.
Akitas aren't very active. He did OK. On a walk if he got hot, he'd just lay down in the shade or head back to the house. Once he was down, you were going to take a break whether you wanted to or not.
