Zeek is a 35-pound male terrier mix (pit) and part doxi who is 6 years old. Zeek walks well on a leash and loves to run and play -- he is fun and energetic and quite a cute little fella.

Zeek is also kid friendly, and can live in a home with other dogs. He prefers a home without cats, however.

He is a little picky about his friends, so a meet and greet with other dogs is a must!

Zeek's vaccinations up to date, and he is neutered.

Please know that if you come to meet any of the dogs at the shelter, they may be excited to see you and extra active. Many times, this is not a true picture of how they may act in a warm, safe home setting. We, as volunteers, often take our shelter dogs on home visits and they become calm and act like completely different animals. This pertains to potty habits and demeanor.

Please realize that they need a chance to shine out of the shelter setting.

Call (618) 542-3647 with general questions. Questions specifically about Zeek should go to To apply, visit to apply.
