Ziggy's Story...
ZIGGY: 6 year neutered black male Lab/Shepherd mix ~60 lbs

Ziggy was given up to Lab Rescue as the family has a new baby and they do not have the time that Ziggy needs. (Also they had a friend over and their toddler stepped on Ziggy and he barked at the child and they are worried that Ziggy will not tolerate their new child.) They got Ziggy when he was 8 weeks of age from the shelter. They saw mom who was a black lab and they were told the dad was a shepherd. They have provided Ziggy a wonderful home but know it is best to find him a new home. The owners say he is a very sweet, playful dog. He loves to play with kids but we would want him placed in a home with older children.

Ziggy is a very smart boy and walks well on a leash with the trainers help, he knows sit, down, come, leave it, off, stay and he takes treats very easy from your hand. He is left during the day for 8 hours and he has free roam of the home and he is not destructive. He is housetrained and has always been an inside dog. They take him to the dog park on a regular basis and he has never had any issues with other dogs. He loves to go for car rides and will sit on the seat looking out the window. Ziggy is has lived with cats.

Ziggy is currently being fostered by a well-experienced dog trainer. This is what he has to say: Ziggy has traits of a shepherd, that of being whiny and prey drive. He has been affectionate with everyone. He knows basic obedience commands and is learning how to walk nicely on the leash. He has never been in a crate and has been free to roam in the previous owner's home. They say he has good house behavior and is housebroken. He has gotten along with several different dogs in my home, large and small breeds. He will bark at unknown people but then is friendly. Any kids in the family should be 10 and up.

Ziggy is neutered, up to date on vaccination, heartworm negative and microchipped.

He is located in Petaluma.

If you are interested in making this cute boy part of your family call Rescue Rep Liz @ 415-613-6374 or email

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ziggy, a San Francisco Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Francisco breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
