That would have been the perfect happy ending, but, unfortunately, Kiko's owner ran into some hard times about two years ago. He was forced to move and couldn't take Kiko with him. Kiko saved his owner's life and home, and then suddenly found himself without a home at all.
Mighty Mutts learned of Kiko's plight, and in late 2014 Kiko was transferred into their care. "The first few weeks of adoption drives, it was obvious that Kiko was very confused, and just seemed to be looking for his owner," Jill Haynes of Mighty Mutts told The Dodo. "Initially we thought he was a little shut down, but after a bit of time we realized he was actually just completely deaf."
