| Personality: very tough, can work hard non-stop in any type of weather, protective over the ones he loves, when he was younger he was constantly checking on his mate, Edelweiss, especially when she was pregnant, traditional, kind and gentle (especially towards his mate, puppies and babies), firm (with disobedient pups, young cattle, trespassing dogs and other) |
| HISTORY |
|Born in a litter of ten, John's parents kept their puppies hidden from human eyes in an abandoned shed by the railway. When food was scarce and both his parents were out hunting, John was giving the responsibility of looking after his younger siblings. Fending off large rats and once, scaring off a large stray dog who was investigating their home. From then on, Gunn became a very serious and next to vicious young dog. Never having that much time for play, nearly always sitting somewhere high where he could watch over his brothers and sisters.
Life was pretty easy for him from then on, except for the odd having to remember to hide from any human who came in sight. Until a terrible thing happened. One early April morn, Gunn heard the creaking and splitting of timber. Looking up he saw the roof being torn off. Humans were tearing down their home. It all happened so quickly and all that he could remember were they cries of humans when he and his family scattered from the crumbling building.
When running, the large barrel they used to drink out of fell off it's wooden planks and collasped over Gunn, shattering his shoulder and trapping him for the present.
