Kinta the Shiba Inu sure has a lot to smile about these days. But that wasn't always the case.
In the summer of August 2010, Kinta was found lying out in the sun, on top of a car.
Michelle Proctor, a 32-year-old ER nurse, thought the cream-colored dog on top of her neighbor's car was actually a large cat at first, but upon closer inspection, confirmed that she was, in fact, a canine. It's unknown how Kinta, who was somewhere between 12 and 18 months old, ended up on top of the car in Owasso, Oklahoma, to begin with.
