Pet Portrait: Krixus the Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix

Krixus Small

Meet Krixus, Daisy’s brother (see her portrait here). I went to google to see if I could find an origin to this unique name, but it remains as mysterious as his breed mixture. Looks like I’ll just have to ask his parents what inspired it!
