Arrival Story:
Koa was surrendered to the Nevada Humane Society a while ago. He ended up in a foster home for them, but he was not getting along with the other male dog in the home. Someone asked us if we would want to take Koa into our rescue. He's older, plus he's got Pitbull in him, plus he has a crooked face, so it was doubtful anyone would want him. He did get adopted once, but got into a fight with the people's young male dog, so he was returned to us.

We decided to just keep him as one of our own, with the rest of the hooligans. He did try to start a fight at our house, but he learned a hard lesson about that sort of thing. He got pretty chewed up by the rest of the dogs, and he's been a GOOD boy ever since!

Koa was hit by a car in his younger days, which left him with his face partially paralyzed. He also gets infrequent muscle spazms on the same side in his shoulder.
