Facts about Zeek

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Zeek was pulled from a kill shelter down south as the time for him had stopped and surpassed his exit clearance. He had beaten the odds and got to safety where we then learned he had to be in quarantine awaiting to rid of Kennel cough. After everything this kid went through from running as stray, in a shelter where he cannot stay to boarding for 3 weeks and then us!
Now that he is here we have had the ability to start his weight gain and is doing wonderful, we did notice stairs going to either an upper level or lower level pose an issue. The stairs make him shake and scared at first and within 48 hours he has now mastered the stairs and is turning into quite the stair master! He is all legs and tall at that so it is throwing us off what exactly he is mixed with, good with dogs and kids and has shown good with cats although he may chase them trying to play if they run.
We are still learning about him but do know that he is kennel trained and fully housetrained but will need some assistance during the adjustment period not to mark. He sits nicely for treats but still acts all puppy so he will need patience to learn his commands. His foster mama says he already knows sit and shake, for the most part and is working on other commands as well.
Zeek would benefit from a harness and some leash manners as he pulls and has no awareness to what it is doing on the other end of the leash, he is just curious as ever. He is up to date on shots, microchipped, neutered and heartworm tested negative!

About Maggy's Bully Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

MBR is a team of volunteers including the director and coordinators. We strive to save as many dogs as we can with the help of our supporters, we are foster and donation based so we really can't do it without you.
MBR rescues, rehomes we also rehabilitate those in need of the extra time. Some dogs come in and fear the human touch and affection, others fear the slightest sound of a door creaking. Some of our dogs come from death row and others from a breeding operation that was going to "throw out" the dog. Others dogs of ours come in as owner surrenders, for whatever reason the owner can no longer keep them, majority of those pups come in ready to go!
We take pride in placing the dogs in the best home possible for any one particular dog. We temperament test all of our dogs before adoption all at correct, positive and safe interaction. Children, other dogs and sometimes cats are tested for positive interactions, if we don't see the reactions that are ideal then it is marked us unable to share with that particular subject in the test. When the weather permits we try to test with bikes, skateboards, motorcycles, big crowds and loud noises to see reactions as well, we get a lot of bikers so we need to make sure the dog is not afraid.
We do our best to learn about the dogs in our care to help place them in forever, learning all their little quirks. When placed in a different home canines can react differently, for that reason every adopter needs to keep an open mind until they learn the dog behaviors themselves.
We firmly believe in decompression time for dogs at a maximum of two weeks, although some can require longer. Decompression is a way for the dog to get acclimated to the new environment and learn the schedule you have placed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Events can be found on our Facebook page a month prior to the event hosting. Any adult the age of 18 and older is welcome to volunteer at events as handlers, as well as attend play dates between dogs and encourage to join with personal dogs on pack walks with MBR adoptables!

Our Adoption Process...

When adopting through MBR, there is a process that seems a mile long but with cooperation and consistency can go rather quickly. All adoptions start with our two application forms, one form being a contract/policies agreement and the other containing the screening portion of the application, requiring personal and vet references.
If and/or when approved through the application, a home check with an MBR representative will be conducted as well as a meet and greet. If all is approved, the dog is a match for the adoptive family, the paperwork is finalized.
Our adoption fees are as follows and go back to cover as much cost of the vetting as possible, please keep in mind our vetting is usually still more than adoption fee received.
Puppies and adults are $150+tax
Seniors(7+) are $100+tax
All dogs adopted through MBR come spayed/neutered, vaccinated (rabies, distemper, parvovirus) and microchipped.
