Ask any rescue or shelter, and they will report that a common reason for rehoming or surrendering a life-long family dog is due to an incident involving young children. This is Kota's pre-resident story in 2021.
Did the story need to end with rehoming? Yes, mainly if the parents were unwilling to invest the time to train the toddler and Kota.
