Meet Zeek! Zeek is seeking his forever family. His original owner lived in an apartment and found out that Zeek would bark too much during the day while he was home alone. So he contacted Safe Haven and asked us to help him find a new home for Zeek. This owner did tell us that he knew Zeek's parents and that Zeek is a Catahoula / Lab mix.....which we think is a super cute mix! That said, Zeek does have some look of a pitty to him, whether that is by chance or related to his actual heritage, we couldn't say.
Zeek is housetrained, knows a few tricks, loves long walks, running around outside (often doing happy figure 8's!) cuddling on the couch, belly rubs, older children, women, car rides, playing tug of war, eating peanut butter out of a kong, small rawhides, and hot dogs. His 'tricks' include: sit, shake, roll over, and jump high for treats! Zeek is not always comfortable with men upon first meeting them, he needs time to warm up. Zeek also does not seem to care for other animals, particularly other dogs. Zeek is a very strong dog, so he will need a strong owner who is willing/able to work with him on walking nicely on a leash (currently he tends to pull).
Zeek is our longest term canine resident at Safe Haven. For the right person or family, he would make for an incredibly loyal, fun, and protective companion.
