Home. Some cats and dogs never have one to call their own. PeoplePets.com wants to help change that by introducing their readers to an extraordinary homeless pet every week. Today, they’d like you to meet Ziggy, a 2-year-old American Pit Bull terrier who is deaf. When you point to the ground, Ziggy lays down. If you hold out your hand, he’ll give you a high five. This extremely intelligent dog has learned sign language to compensate for not being able to hear. Besides having an impressive resume of skills – he’s earned a Canine Good Citizen Certification from the AKC and has been trained in dog agility – Ziggy is polite, house-trained and loving. He’s an active, large dog that would be best in a home without children or other pets. Looking for a walking partner? Ziggy has plenty of energy for long walks and fetch, and is a great co-pilot on car rides.

You can find out more about Ziggy and see a video of him performing tricks in his article on PeoplePets.com and find out more about him on his Adopt-a-Pet.com profile page here.
