ZiggyZiggy Head

Ziggy is a 8-9 month old Belgian Malinois mix. He is currently on the smaller side weighing in at about 50lbs, but still has some more growing to do. Ziggy was an unclaimed stray in a local shelter so nothing is known about his background.

Ziggy currently lives in a foster home with four other large dogs, and gets along fine with both the males and females. Although the smallest of the group, he can rough and tumble with the biggest of them. Ziggy is housebroken with the use of a doggie door, and sleeps quietly through the night, but don't worry, he still has some charming puppy qualities. While usually satisfied with an appropriate chew toy, occasionally other objects catch his eye and end up in his mouth. He has also made a couple minor modifications to the landscaping in his backyard. Overall Ziggy is a great puppy and corrects easily and usually without repeating.

Ziggy is learning leash manners, but still hasn't quite mastered heel, so care needs to be taken not to be tripped up by him. Although it is not known how he will do with cats or other small critters, Ziggy is only mildly interested in all of the squirrels in the back yard. Even trail hikes, he only shows slight curiosity in the wildlife and horses along the trail.

Although Ziggy is energetic, he is also very cuddly and loves to be the center of attention. He needs a home where he will be included in daily activities, and where someone will continue his socialization and training.

This is a Level 2 Dog
