Kanellos was the first incarnation of Riot Dog who was involved in the 2008 Greek riots. Kanellos died in 2008 of unknown causes, thought to only be old age. Kanellos lived to be quite old but had severe arthritis in his final days, motivating the local college student to donate money to purchase him a "doggy" wheel chair and allowing him to live among them indoors until he passed.
The newer Kanellos look-alike is Thodoris, more commonly called Louk, and is thought to be one of Kanellos' pups. Louk is a light golden colored stray dog, who is up to date on all his shots, hence the blue collar. During his off time he is relaxed and quite mild, though when witnessed during May 2010 Greek riots he can be seen darting through protesters, dodging canisters of tear gas and fire bombs, taking shots of mace, and even growling and barking at the riot police. He is usually well taken care of by the college students of Athens and lives comfortably considering he roams the streets at will.
Known not only for his bravery and seemingly intelligent grasp of what is going on around him, he is known for bringing attention to the political crisis in Greece. A problem which has now gained increasing attention due to Riot Dog's media coverage. He is quickly becoming the face of civil disorder and freedom fighting. via:wikipedia
