The saga of Kronk, the missing husky who has been roaming up and down and around the San Francisco Peaks for 42 days, is finally over.

Kronk, who ran away from his owner on a family snow game trip to Aspen Corner in early January, was trapped on Monday evening in near-white conditions near a homestead at 418 Forest Road near Potato Tank, where the resourceful is Husky found, eventually arrested I stole food for days.

I'm happy to report that after nearly two months on the run, Kronk doesn't seem to be wearing much worse, said Teresa Schumann, director of Animal Search and Rescue in Northern Arizona, who led the effort.

“If you look at him in the pictures we took,” said Schumann on Tuesday, “he looks great because of his hair. But when you feel his back, you can feel his spine. So he has definitely lost some weight. His paws look fine, but you try to touch them and he jerks them back. There is probably a lot of tenderness there. But really, come on, it's amazing. He is a beautiful animal. "

And yes, confirmed Schumann, that is indeed the real Kronk.

Readers may recall the hustle and bustle in the community two weeks earlier when the nonprofit rescue group initially caught a husky that everyone – including Kronk's owner Andrea Hyler of Buckeye – believed was the missing dog. However, it turned out to be a different, almost identical husky, Daggo, who had only been missing and found for a few days. It was a week at home before Hyler realized that this dog hadn't been neutered like Kronk is.
