About Ziggy

  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Black with White
  • Housetrained: Yes

Hi … my name is Ziggy and here are some things you need to know about me!  After you read through my bio, if you think I might be the perfect pup for you, please go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete your adoption application online.

If you’re lucky, a dog will come into your life, steal your heart, and change everything.

ZIGGY IS A SUPER SENIOR!

Ziggy is still an alpha personality – a little senior dog with a big personality.  He is a good pup ... a little firecracker wrapped in black fur!  He will do best with an experienced, confident owner who will be a strong leader so Ziggy doesn’t think he needs to be in charge. He will test you, but once he is convinced that you are in charge, he’s very obedient.  He will challenge other dogs (especially if there is a fence between them), but will stand down when consistently corrected.  Once he makes friends with another dog, the challenges stop. 

Ziggy has nice house manners, and he is always the pup that sits quietly waiting for his dinner.  He is a very smart boy and his new family needs to be pretty clever to stay a step ahead of him!  He's had a few years to learn to be creative! He is not a good choice for first time pet owners and will do best with a family with terrier/active dog experience.

Approximate age/birthdate:  DOB 12/9/2008

Personality: definitely an alpha with other dogs, submissive with people, very intelligent, active, social, territorial

Fenced yard required?:   YES – he gets very protective of his space and will bark and run at “intruders”. He will bark at other dogs when they are separated by a fence, but he will play with them when they are in the same yard.

Does he/she jump fences?  NO – but he will dig under a fence if he gets bored and unsupervised (that is why he was returned by his first adopter)

Leash walk:  YES - he will pull but he does take correction well

Obedience training:  Knows ‘sit,’ ‘down,’ ‘off,’ ‘wait’

Adoption donation: $75

We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.

When your reference checks are completed and your application is tentatively approved, we will schedule a home visit and a meet-and-greet to see if Ziggy picks you too.

If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption contract to be signed and a requested adoption donation.

Please feel free to email weluvpups@hotmail.com if you have additional questions.
