This sweet senior gal is looking for her forever home to retire to. She currently lives with cats, kittens, and several large dogs and is gentle with kids. She does get grumpy when the big, young dogs knock her around, but can you blame her!? Ziggy is interested in the cats but respectful of their boundaries. She will do well in a house with kids, cats, and other dogs, but would also be content as the only animal.
Ziggy enjoys lounging on her dog bed, roaming around the yard, and getting lots of chin scratches. She does not require much exercise and is content with yard time or a leisurely 10 - 15 minute walk.
Ziggy is (estimated to be) 11 years old. She still does well on stairs and uses the bathroom outside only. She does have some hearing loss so if she is off leash you have to wave your hands or pat your leg to get her attention/ask her to come.
Are you interested in giving this sweet senior a forever home? Put in an application and meet Ziggy!
Hailey K is her foster parent. The adoption fee for Ziggy is $200, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Ziggy. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
