Getting Ziggy Adopted (or not)

As you know, I'm always looking for new ways to get Ziggy adopted. I thought perhaps a new picture would help, so I looked through my pictures from Saturday's adoption events, and found the perfect picture to get him adopted.



Okay fine, this isn't really Ziggy. But I guarantee you that when this guy hits the website, the adoption applications are going to start rolling in. If only I could figure out a way to make Ziggy actually look like this. Maybe I could try a curling iron on his hair?

If that won't work, perhaps I can use this picture.

This looks a little bit more like Ziggy, and he'll probably generate some interest on the website as well. If I dye Ziggy black, and tug on his ears to make them longer and floppy, it might just work.

No? It won't? Okay. How about this one?

If I lie and say he's not a pit bull, and he's not deaf, and he doesn't chew on everything constantly, I bet he might have a chance to get adopted based on this picture. I like this picture. He looks handsome and calm and he's not chewing on anything. It lasted approximately 4.8 seconds. Then he returned to his normal Ziggy behavior.

Chewing on me.


Looking goofy.


Barking.



And doing whatever it takes to get treats. Because Ziggy is all about treats. Just look at his focus.

This kind of focus is supposed to make him easier to train. And perhaps if his trainer wasn't as goofy as he is, he'd be better trained by now.

Oh well - at least we have fun together.

Oh we think Ziggy is cute enough to get adopted on his own. Now, the behavior is a different story - but the problem is certainly not how he looks!!

omg who is that black doggy?! I love his ears!!!!

Poor Ziggy. He has the cutest face! He seems like a lot of fun (and quite a handful) I hope he finds his forever home soon!

Sigh. I just luvs Ziggy. I just don't see how nobuddy else has fallen madly head-over-paws in luvs with him, too. Some peoples out there MUST want a white, deaf, expert chewer pit bull, right?

Maybe you could looks into hair extensions. For him. Not you. You have very nice hair.

Oh poor Ziggy. Let's all wish that he finds a good home very soon!!

Pibble said...

Oh, if I could, believe me, I would! But, well, with his drinking problem and all...

He's so cute, you don't have to make him into a lap dog or a floppy-eared mix. He's perfect the way he is! His special family will come along soon enough. Or maybe he's already home. :)

hero said...

I have a confession... I have been selfish coz secretly I hope that Ziggy will never get adopted... so that we can see him on this blog :)

Licks, hero

Whenever I see pictures of Ziggy I always think of how adorable he is. The chewing thing just has to be a puppy thing, right? Won't he grow out of it?

Lola said...

Ziggy is very adorable just the way he is. I predict that you and Ziggy will have a long and happy life together. Some things are just meant to be.

wags, Lola

I agree with our friends!
Ziggy sure is special and I am thinking he will be forever with you!
I love your pictures!

If you wanted to just sneak him to me, I would take him in a heartbeat! Even with all his problems and all the stereotypes about pitbulls. I have told my family all about him and they know that if Ziggy is still around "when the ban is lifted" (fingers crossed) I will be on my way to get him.

The Two Country Poodles said...

BOL BOL BOL....You should put a curly wig on his head and call him a poodle mix...That just might work!

Pibble said...

YES! TCP is right! He can be the latest designer dog: A Pittie-poo! Poo-bull? Pittle? Hey, I'm trying to be helpful...

Gnomebody said...

We said it before, we think Ziggy would have a good time at our house. We're chewers too and never sit still. We have Mommy trained very well to keep all her nice stuffs out of our sightline!

But he's so sweet! Even if he does have a tiny chewing problem. Surely someone out there wants a good chewer.
