Kronos along with his mom and littermates were brought in as strays to the Pinal County Animal Care and Control Shelter November 2nd, 2012.
The estimated age at their intake was about 2-3 weeks old.
Mom and her litter were pulled by Arizona Cattle Dog Rescue and fostered in Marana Valley, AZ.
Looking to add a friend for Bella to the family, though I prefer female dogs, I figured a boy would be more acceptable as it’s recommended to have alternate gender pairings for dogs. ACDR had recently gotten a litter of pups in. I asked if I could foster a pup so I could see if he would mesh with Bella and the family dogs.
After looking through all of the pup’s photos on Facebook, I asked to foster Setimika-a dark plain blue boy with brown eyes. Though I distinctly remember this photo which had caught my eye.
Little did I know that little Pimne would be the one coming home with me to stay.
When I went to photograph the pups, I was asked if I could temporarily foster another one of the pups and take him to his foster home in Flagstaff when I returned to school. I agreed, and was given “Ciqlal” to foster.
He peed in the car on the way home and was a little doped up because of his medicine after his double dew claw removal surgery. This pup looked so scared and I had no intention of adopting him, but he set out to change my mind.
Interesting for sure! But whatever he is, he’s adorable.
This is an abbreviated video of his first year. Enjoy!
*For you Greek buffs, the spelling of his name is like the Titan Kronos but he was named for the God of Time
