From the tag:

"Long ago, before the time of conflict and cookies, there were only the Original Ninjas. Equal parts elemental and ethereal, Sprout Ninja, like the others, formed the basis upon which Ninjatown now stands. Legend says all foresty and earthy-type ninjas come from this mysterious being."

From the tag:

Some dogs are simply too special to be considered food, yet this does not stop them from being pursued. Ninja Dog can evade the most veracious eaters – even Chicagoans – with his honed ninja skills and innovative gadgetry. He can scale buildings with his sport pepper grapple and mustard rope, blind you with a celery salt smoke bomb, or even smother you with his charred yet strangely squishy bun. You've been warned!
