Once one of Shredder's most promising students of dark ninjutsu, Chris Bradford was sent to New York to secretly establish a base of operations for the Foot Clan. He became a celebrity with a chain of dojos, but was covered in mutagen ooze while fighting the Turtles. Due to a bite from Shredder's Akita dog, Bradford mutated in a human/dog hybrid. Dubbed Dogpound by Michelangelo, he hangs with another mutant baddie, Fishface.
