Breed: Akita inu / Kishu mix Joe is the brother to Yukimura and Weed. When Sakura, his mother, became too ill to take care of all three of her puppies, she allowed Sakachi to take Joe and Yukimura in as though they were his own sons. In the South of Japan, Joe and Yukimura get attacked by monkeys; Joe was supposedly beaten to death and taken to Shougun, the baboon general, as food. However, in the newer chapters Joe was revealed as still being alive (being saved by humans during the monkey attack) and has one son. His mate, Hitomi, and his other children were killed by a hybrid bear. Joe's older self sports a collar and a scar on his neck.
