Somewhat Wordless Wednesday

Sometimes people ask why Ziggy hasn't been adopted yet. It could be because he's deaf. More likely it's because he's a pit bull mix. I'm sure it doesn't help that he tries to chew on every person who greets him at an adoption event. But sometimes as I look at Ziggy, I just wonder why other people don't see what a special dog he is. For example, I think these pictures of Ziggy, taken while he was asleep, speak for themselves.  










I'm thinking of making that last picture his profile picture on the adoption website.  If people get tired of looking at little cute fluffy dogs and cats, Ziggy can at least provide a change of pace!   What do you think?

I do hope that he can find a home, however it is very much difficult for me to feel sorry for Ziggy. He is obviously in a home that appreciates all his grrrrrreat qualities. He is safe and cared about RIGHT WHERE HE IS. I'm just sayin'.

Yea, I'm kinda withs Frankie on this one too. You do know how smart Frankie is , right? My mum loves it when I sleep too and I haves yet to figure out why...I thought it was cuz I just looked adorable sleeping but Brudder said that wasn't da case.

I LUVS that last picture of Ziggy SO MUCH! It just makes me smile all over! Plus, he kinda looks like a one-eared rabbit and peoples like rabbits for some reason.

I hopes one day soon somebuddy else will be able to see in Ziggy what we all see in him. He might have some orneriness in him but it comes with a sugar coating!

Think Ziggy has already found his most perfect home already in his mind. He really seems to love living with you especially since you have such a great understanding of deaf pitmixes. I hope that while you go through applications for Ziggy you make sure that it is a home as good as yours or better. Ziggy defintely deserves the best and in his mind that seems to be YOU!

Okay, first of all that sweet smile should be melting hearts left and right. And the sprawl? I know that sprawl. It says 'This is my home and I'm here!'

I thing you may be stuck. But, I'll keep sending the good juju your way.

This is my first post, well post that I didn't raise my leg to. Hang in there Ziggy, good things come to those who wait. Love my forever home, it was a long, long time coming. I even unpacked my suitcase and threw it away.

They are so cute when they are sleeping. Yes, yes, I too wish Ziggy could stay with you forever. I know you can't keep them all, but I can tell the two of you love each other very much.

Something tells me that Ziggy is right where he is suppose to be! He looks like he has made himself right at home!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well, we adore Ziggy so we can't see why there isn't a line around the block to try and adopt him. We think maybe he is just too perfect in his current situation and the universe wants him to stay where he is!

What great photos. He is definitely full of personality.

But I agree with our friends. He feels at home!

i don't understand why ziggy hasn't been adopted either.. i think he's absolutely gorgeous and i love the stories you share about him. he sounds like the most fun dog in the world to live with! never a boring moment i'm sure!

he does look really comfortable with you though.. totally settled, totally at home and maybe it is a blessing in disguise that he hasn't been adopted yet.. maybe you're meant for each other.

Zigmeister - I can sure appreciate a good groin-exposed snoozel. There's nothing quite like it. Keeps the whole body cool... like groin-conditioning.
