Ziggy has lived a number of homes in housing commission places where no-one cared for him or taken responsibility for him. He has such an affectionate nature and willing to please. Ziggy suits a family with kids 12+yo as he jumps up when excited.
Our trainer says "good family dog".
Ziggy loves his walks. He pulls a bit on lead but ignores other dogs. He is a bit scared of cars but more particularly trucks and vans. He loves affection and loves being patted and belly rubs. He sits on command.
Walkers say "Ziggy listens to the walker. He's a good boy." "He can be encouraged with food to keep moving when cars pass." "Super friendly boy, calm demeanour. Interested in other dogs but not reactive" "Acutely aware and nervous of traffic. Easily controlled and distracted. Sits for treats and takes them politely."
He has a short coat and weighs 28kg.
Garden: Needs a home that has more space as well as a garden for exercise and regular walks outside.
Good with Kids: Shown to be good with kids in the controlled environment of the Shelter.
Suit Part Time Worker: Copes alone for short periods, with training possibly longer but presently does need someone home part of the time
DoggieRescue is a charitable organisation and as such we rely very much on volunteers to manage our adoptions. We answer initial adoption enquiries by email or phone and then arrange an appointment for you to meet some of our rescue dogs.
At DoggieRescue we believe our dogs deserve to find that special someone who will love them and look after them forever. We know that there are homes out there that are willing to accommodate one more little member of the family and dedicate time to their well being.
