Ring in the New Year with the baby Hewy of dogs. Zeek is a Mastiff mix who is about 2 years old. He does not know his own size and thinks hes a lap dog. He is very sweet and gentle and loves to play with other dogs. He is housebroken and walks well on leash considering he has not had much formal training. He is a strong dog and needs an owner who can handle his strength, even though he is a gentle giant. If you are interested in Zeek please contact Kris @ 546-4269 or
