Ziggy – Ready for Adoption!

My name is Ziggy and I’ve been very patient. I’ve waited until Christmas is over because I know it’s a busy time of year… and this is important.
The thing is, I’m a magnificent dog. I’m a cuddly, friendly, goofy boy. I like little children and I LOVE toys. And I’m athletic and absolutely gorgeous. A head-turner… and also a big baby.  I’m five-and-a-half years old, so I’m plenty energetic, but I do have manners. I know about living in a house and being a pet!  The problem is this. Have you ever been, say, on Twitter and noticed that people are a lot more likely to voice their controversial opinions than they would be face-to-face? Imagine you didn’t have the option to turn that off and walk away. You just had all those obnoxious howling opinions pressing in on you from all sides, 24/7. It would be maddening. And that’s kind of how it is in the dog kennels. When another animal is being a jerk from the other side of a fence (or, tbh, even if they’re not), it gets to me. And right now, I live in a run completely surrounded by… barriers and other dogs. All the time. Like I said: maddening.  And that’s why this is important. That’s why I wanted- no, NEEDED- your full attention. Because I can’t get out of here without your help. And I really, really need to get out of here.  I need a home with no cats or male dogs. I have met and gotten along with some female dogs, but I’m selective and would like to do a meet-and-greet with any potential dog sisters before making a commitment. I’m a strong boy and will pull on leash if I think I can get away with it, so I need someone who is physically able to handle me.  I can’t wait to meet the person who will become my best buddy! I promise to be a good boy: blanket-snuggler, hiking companion, tug-of-war champion 2023, and total goofball. Just give me a chance.
