Joe is in Albuquerque New Mexico getting ready to meet with the breeder and pickup Moonlight's Fudo (Moonlight is the kennel is he coming from and Fudo is the Japanese God of fire and wisdom). His technical color is "Red" in the Akita world which is where we got the fire name from.
He was passed over by all of the show homes because he has too much white on his face, which means that we get the pick of the litter! :-D Holy crap, I can hardly sit still and feel as though I am going to cry...kind of like giving birth without the pain and the fancy underwear. ;-)
