Ziggy Wins An Award

I recently took Ziggy to an area fundraiser so he could participate in the agility demonstration.  While we were there, Ziggy entered the "Best Trick" contest and did his prayer that all the homeless pets would find homes.  This is a picture of him doing this trick at an adoption event earlier this year:


Ziggy won second place in the contest and received a medal!

I just cant get over how cute it is when Ziggy prays! Good job Ziggy, you're such a special boy and whoever adopts you someday is sure getting a prize of their own :)

He is such a cool dog. Maybe he should just be your dog!

Dog Foster Mom said...

Black Dog Mom - I would love to keep him, but Ziggy isn't always good with other dogs, so he needs a home where he can be an only pet, or with just one other dog. He has to spend a lot of time crated here because of the other foster dogs, so I want him to get a home where he gets the time and attention that he needs.

Black Dog Mom said...

I totally understand why you can't keep him. It does make fostering other dogs harder. I have a shep mix here for 10 months who thankfully gets along with my five, but I am never sure how he will be with the fosters that come in. It really restricts me on what kind of dogs I can bring in. He finally has a meet and greet on Saturday with a single guy who lives in the country and has no other dogs. I am just praying that they are a match and he finds his forever home.

I would like to send a 'care package' to your dogs ... Ziggy especially, since I know he's an active boy who would love some new chews :) Does he like Bully Sticks?

Dog Foster Mom said...

Black Dog Mom - Good luck with your meet and greet - I hope it is a perfect fit!

HannahG - Aww, thank you so much, Ziggy would love some chews! I bought him bully sticks once but he ate them so fast that I decided they were too expensive for something that was gone in just a couple of minutes. :-) I'm not sure if it was just the bully sticks i bought or if they're all like that, but he's a really powerful chewer. Filled sterilized bones or cow hoofs are also some of his favorites, but honestly he will eat absolutely anything and enjoy every second of it. :-) You can e-mail me at dogfostermom@aol.com for Ziggy's mailing address if you'd like.

Too adorable. Congrats, Ziggy!

Oh my gosh, I wanna adopt Ziggy so badly! But I live way down here in Texas :( *sigh* I can't believe this awesome boy hasn't been adopted yet!

LP said...

Ziggy is such a beautiful looking dog and such a character too! We can't believe he hasn't been adopted yet. We are keeping all of our paws crossed that one day (very soon!) his forever family will finally show up!!

YAY Ziggy! I'm so very much proud of you. I mean, I was proud of you before you won your medal but that medal just lets everybuddy know for SURE how very special you are! I just don't know how anybuddy wouldn't want to adopt a doggie that comes with his very own medal.
