Meet Ziggy!

Age: 14 months old

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix


Gets along with: people, dogs

Location: Newport News, VA

Ziggy is a handsome little Australian Shepherd mix who is back in our rescue through no fault of his own, and he is ready for his forever home.  He is 14 months old, weighs 34 pounds, and he has a very pretty red tri coat with a full tail.  Ziggy is housebroken and crate-trained, and he knows his basic obedience commands.  He also rides beautifully in the car. We are working on Ziggy’s leash-walking skills – he still pulls too much. 

Ziggy loves people and has very nice people manners.  We would describe him as a medium-high energy, high Velcro boy. Ziggygets very excited to see his foster parents when they come home - he gets a little vocal and he really hopes they will be giving out hugs and belly rubs. Ziggy loves to be wherever his foster family is, both inside and outside. He really enjoys his walks but doesn’t like to play ball or catch a frisbee. Ziggy loves the company of other dogs, and playing “tag and chase” with his doggie friends is his favorite way to exercise! Once everyone has settled for the evening Ziggy enjoys cuddling with his foster parents on the sofa.  Ziggy is a cat chaser. 

The ideal home for Ziggy is full of fun, shared with a family who is ready to add a sweet boy to their daily activities. A fenced yard and another playful dog are required and older children are welcome.  Ziggy is generally a pretty flexible guy except when it comes to cats – they would not welcome him!  If Ziggysounds like the perfect dog for you, apply today!  Ziggy is fostered near Newport News, Va.  

Ziggy's adoption donation is $275.
