Meet ZigZag

Zig Zag, or "Ziggy", is an extremely affectionate and fun-loving boy that will steal your heart with just one look at his "sunglasses!" He has been a special project for his foster parents who have worked diligently to help reduce his reactivity towards animals. He has made big improvements but will need a special "forever home" with owners that have the patience to continue his lessons. Ziggy loves to be warm and cozy and will surely come snuggle you on the couch if you have a blanket he can nuzzle his way under. He is crate trained, leash trained, is excellent about communicating when he needs to potty, knows "sit", "stay", "lie down", and is an especially good listener when a treat is involved! He is looking for a family he can trust who will dedicate the time to learn his special style of play - which includes big noises and lots of tug of war where he is always the winner. He is specifically looking for a quiet home where he can let down his guard. He loves his routines, including activity during the day where he can let out his energy. Though he has special needs, Ziggy is worth all the extra effort. He is easy to love and enjoys soaking in all the affection when his anxiety is properly managed. He will need responsible owners who are always willing to ensure the safety of him and other animals. The current fosters are willing to continue the adoptive family's education of Ziggy afterwards to ensure his success. Ziggy will need to end up in a home with no other pets or young children.
