Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Ziggy is a handsome, affectionate, dear little guy. He's in a foster home with a large and a small dog and 4 cats and grand kids that come and go and he loves and is respectful of all. He's a charming little companion. Ziggy is bit by bit overcoming a difficult puppyhood fraught with unkindness. He has de-stressed a lot and is no longer fearful of a raised hand or stick. He's on first meeting wary of men but gets over it quickly and though shy at first now adores his foster dad.
He is loving and calm at home but he's not a dog park dog and would not be the best dog young children. He can be dog reactive on leash. So walking and living in a busy neighborhood would not be best for him. He does enjoy a good game of fetch and zooming around the yard with his dog friends. He also loves hanging around with his foster family in their large garden. He likes to snuggle while you watch TV or read the paper. He is reliably house trained doesn't chew up things and is very polite.

Ziggy would do best in a home full of love that has a big fenced yard to play in with a dog buddy or two.

If interested in adopting Ziggy, or have any questions please email his foster mom Lucinda.
