Artemis(VTPM001) was born on November 17, 2007 in the Thermopylae Mob. His mother was Runo and his father was Padloper. His litter-mates were his one brother named Vladimir(VTPM004) and two sisters Gorgo(VTPF002) and Coron(VTPF003). They were the first litter ever born in the Thermopylae. All four pups surivived to their first year. Artemis was old enough to start helping out with the new pups and taking sentry duties. He soon started to rove with his brother Vladimir and the other males within the group. His mother sadly died and his aunt Julie became the dominant female beside his father. Sadly his father died in August 2009 of disease and the dominant male position became open. Artemis' unlce had left the group so he and his brother Vladimir were the oldest males still in the mob. Vladimir made no attempt at dominance so the positionw as left to Artemis who establisted dominance. Julie soon died of disease and Gorgo became the new dominant female. Since he can not mate with his sisters, Artemis still conitues to rove. Artemis is still in the Thermopylae as the dominant male today.
