Pitt and Kantrop

50,000 years ago - the dawn of humanity.
12 year-old Pitt, a weakling by the standards of his tribe (especially its bombastic chief) has little chance of survival.

The rest of his tribe don't share these traits, and don't particularly want to be acquire them, though.

Fortunately for Pitt, he teams up with Kantrop - the last living pterodactyl, and also effectively the world's first pet or companion animal. Strong and powerful, Kantrop is a crucial ally for Pitt.
