This is the first picture of Kane & I taken 9 years ago when I brought him home from the shelter in Belleville, Ontario. The shelter staff told me he had been hit and abused by his previous owner and would need a lot of care and patience from us if he was to recover. You won't believe this but neither Gary nor myself had ever owned a dog and we were taking on a 'special' case with Kane.
