Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

August 1st 2005

A long playtime followed by a nap on the couch, snuggling with my mommy; destroying shoes, magazines or anything else really

when someone walks by me without saying hi...I bark at them, and I hate when my mommy tries to move me when I am sleeping in her bed...I know I get all sprawled out, but don't move me when I am sleepy! It makes me grumpy, I hate having my nails clipped!

Favorite Toy:
Anything that sqeaks and I can destroy, playing with Nala's ears, rope toys

Favorite Food:
treats...but mommy won't let me have many cause I will get too tubby

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
sitting on my bum with front legs in the air, crawling, high fives, dancing

Arrival Story:
Ziggy was rescued from a high-kill shelter in NC. He was transported all the way to NJ by a wonderful rescue league. I had been looking for a pup to keep me company for a long time, and as soon as they got Ziggy (then named Blake) the director of the rescue informed me and it sounded like a perfect match. Waiting for the adoption day was the hardest! I hadn't even seen a picture of my little man yet. But it certainly was love at first sight for me and my pup. He raced right up to me and gave me lots of wet puppy kisses.

Ziggy is some kind of Chi/Dach/Terrier mix. Gorgeous black and tan coat. He is the most affectionate and playful little pup ever. He loves to play, and is totally unaware of how small he is. He is super-social and likes to "announce" his arrival with two quick barks. He is such a little snuggler. He loves playing with his new sister, Nala. He is such a good big brother! Find your next best friend...visit your local animal shelter!
