Best Tricks:
I'm pretty good at coming when my guardian calls me. And considering my past - that is an amazing trick for me to have mastered!

Arrival Story:
I used to live on a short chain, in a sled dog racer's yard in Mt. Gillead, Ohio. My life consisted of sitting on my chain and running in harness on the dog team. I was a very good sled dog - after all, I had to be. My very life depended on it. Bad things happen to sled dogs who can't keep up. And I wasn't about to let that happen to me. But one day, even though I tried my very hardest in harness, something strange happened. My human never came out to feed me and my teammates. The next day the same thing happened. And the next day, and the next day. Soon, we ran out of water. I gnawed on my chain, day after day, trying to free myself. I was starving. The grass had always been very tall where we were, and with no one here to scoop our feces, the flies overwhelmed me and my teammates. My ears were blackened from fly bites, and I also acquired heartworm disease from mosquito bites. One of my teammates died. The others were close to death, like me. Then after a few weeks, humans found us once again. They unchained us and took us to a veterinarian. We were all very sick, and not all of us made it. I was one of the lucky ones. The treatment for my heartworm disease was expensive and also difficult for me to deal with at times. I coughed a lot, and felt very weak. Finally, after I was better, I got to travel to a new home in New York State with two of my teammates, Mikoa and Ashley (our guardian has since adopted Ashley out to a wonderful family in MA). For the first time ever, I was able to run free in a wide open area with other dogs. I was also able to go inside a house - a human house!! My new guardian showed me love and compassion that I never thought possible. I thank doG every day for the humans that rescued me and brought me to my new family.

Bio:
"Khuno" is the name of the God of Snowstorms in Aymara mythology. My guardian said she named me that because I am white, like snow. And she says I deserve to be named after a god.

Forums Motto:
Chain free is the way to be!
