The first time I saw him, I had no idea he was created in a lab.

I'd been living on the streets for around eight months before I lost count. In all that time, unable to trust anyone, I had been alone. Then one day, while out searching for food, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. And he wasn’t an accident either, having escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn and we found ourselves on the run against a powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?
