Ziggy is one tough dog. He recently stood up to a pack of wild dogs, all on his own. He wasn't scared. He didn't need backup. Ziggy can hold his own. I was nearby monitoring this pack of wild dogs and was able to capture some photographs to share with you.
It all started with Ziggy just walking along, carrying a toy and minding his own business. Then a huge, vicious wild dog approached him from behind.
The wild dog has brought along a pack of dogs, all there with one intention - to steal Ziggy's toy. They quickly surrounded him so he had nowhere to escape.
They repeatedly tried tackling him.
One member of the wild dog pack even used a rather rude method to try to dominate and distract Ziggy, but even that didn't work.
Finally, the wild dog pack managed to get Ziggy to drop the toy, and quickly stole it from him.
That didn't last long though, because Ziggy immediately tried to steal it back, and an impromptu game of tug broke out.
In the end, the toy was not quite strong enough, and one member of the wild dog pack ended up with a headless duck for a toy, while Ziggy happily carried off a duck head as a prize.
