   Leave a bone for Kio

Arrival Story:
His parents were sold by a breeder to someone who didn't honor the spay/neuter contract. Some time later said owner then dumped them, sick and underweight, at the pound with the departing advice of "she might be pregnant." She had puppies later that evening. Both parents and puppies ended up at a Tennessee Malamute shelter and I was able to eventually adopt him.

He has epilepsy, and wasn't that a fun surprise when it cropped up *dryly* He's a sweet dog and a great companion. Even if he does try to leave the dog park with anyone who smells like food and pretend he has no idea who I am on these occasions. I had to use a puppy pic for his profile because the only thing he likes less than being told not to eat cats is standing still for the camera. The best shot I have of him as an adult is Santa wrestling him to the ground at Pet Smart, which really, Kio seemed to find highly entertaining.
