Blitzen is an adorable, fluffy mix between a Newfoundland and a Saint Bernard (sometimes called a "Saint Bernewfie"). His dad was 180 pounds and at 9 weeks old Blitzen already weighs in at 25 pounds! He will definitely embrace the gentle giant title. He is a goofy, mellow guy that loves sleeping, untying shoes, and making new friends.
Why kids need pets. I had an older brother with four legs and when I was 3 I got my first cat and bunny. I grew up knowing that love could have more than 2 legs. Plus studies show that kids who grow up with pets are less likely to develop allergies. :)
