Cheech Menacing Mongrel #17

Cheech Menacing Mongrel #17

This Mongrel was made custom for our buddy Cheech out in Denver. Spent allot of time together while the piece was in process and really put that energy into his character. This Mongrel is #17 in the series and stands at about 5" tall. No splash back and great function! He comes as a set with a worked dome, monster dish, and tongue dabber holder.
