Tonka's owner gave him to his nephew Jake when he was a puppy. Jake wanted an elkhound and said he would take good care of him.
One month later Tonka's owner found out Jake's house was in bad disrepair and not a suitable place for a young dog. Jake gave the puppy back.
One year later Jake said he was ready to give the puppy a good home. Tonka's owner gave him another chance. Jake took the puppy home.
Two months later Tonka's owner was looking thru the online pet listings and saw a dog that looked just like Tonka. It was Tonka. Jake had given him to animal control and the Humane Society had pulled him out to save him. Jake denied giving Tonka up and to this day no one knows why.
