CH Storm Zeke of Serenity, CGC
June 29, 1995 - June 12, 2007
Zeke was a very, very special dog. Unfortunately, Zeke fell into the wrong hands somewhere during his early years, and lived a life of neglect for several years. We acquired Zeke in May 2001 after his original breeder located him, and desired to get him out of the situation he was in.
At the time Zeke came to us, he was 40 lbs underweight, had 4 different types of worms, and had terrible infections in both his ears and front paw pads. Still, he wagged his tail constantly in joy. By September, Zeke took a 5-point major at his very first show (Zeke was 6 years old). Zeke became an AKC Champion on March 16, 2002 taking a 4-point major and going Best of Winners at the Connecticut River Working Dog Show in Springfield, MA, less than 10 months after he was saved from a life of misery. Zeke placed 4th in the Veteran Dog Class (6-8 years) at the 2002 MCOA National Specialty held in Portland, Oregon.
At the 2003 MCOA National Specialty in Carlisle, PA, Zeke took 1st in the Veteran Sweepstakes for 6-8 Year Dogs, and placed 4th in the Veteran Dog Class for 6-8 Year Dogs.
For the 2004 MCOA National Specialty, held in Tucson, AZ, Zeke placed 2nd in the Veteran Sweepstakes for 8-10 Year Dogs, and won 1st Place in the Veteran Dog Class for 8-10 Year Dogs.
At the Timberland Valley Dog Fancier's Association show held on April 9, 2005 in Centralia, Washington, Zeke won the Veteran's 8+ Class and also won Best Stud Dog. This was a Supported Entry show by the Pacific Northwest Mastiff Fanciers.
Zeke was always a sweetheart of a dog, and gave far more love than he ever asked in return.
On June 12, 2007, approximately 2 weeks before his 12th birthday, Zeke passed to the Rainbow Bridge due to problems associated with a growth in his pelvic region obstructing his colon.
He was a magnificent dog - one of a kind - and will be remembered forever.
Marcy Mountain Mastiffs retains frozen semen for Zeke, and will entertain breeding to select bitches.
Bred by dee dee Andersson, Zeke was by Greiner Hall Falcon out of Storm Gwendoline of Serenity.
