Playful, Sweet, Affectionate

If you are viewing this dog on a website other than please go directly to our website for more information on adoption requirements and specifics for this dog.  Websites such as Petfinder and Adopt-A-Pet may not show all the information that we have listed.


Ziggy is a sweet. playful and handsome boy. He loves to be near his people and gets along very well with other dogs.  He is used to going to doggie day care and also to dog parks where he likes to run and play with other dogs. He does really well with other dogs and is quite social.  He also likes to run with humans and will be a perfect dog to be a running companion since he can keep up for nearly a mile run.  He loves to chase and fetch balls. Of course, he loves squeaky toys! 

He attended training class for 5 weeks and is crate trained.  He can also be left alone in the house as long as his owner makes sure the house is appropriately "puppy proofed".   He sleeps in his doggie bed at night and does not need to be crated.  Ziggy is fully housebroken and will  whine and go to the door when he needs to go outside.

Ziggy can be quite shy and would do best in a home with another dog.  A fenced in yard would be ideal so he can run and play.  


He loves to be petted and have his belly rubbed:-) He just loves to cuddle and is very affectionate. Could he come and cuddle with you?? 


Ziggy was originally admitted into BFPA in January 2016 and was adopted quite quickly.  His owner changed his name to Oakley, so he will respond to Oakley.  Recently, his owner had some personal changes in her life and felt she could no longer provide the right type of home for Oakley (Ziggy).  So due to no fault of Oakleys, BFPA is once again looking for a forever home for this handsome boy.  

Some of the information contained in this biography includes approximations based on our expertise and is not guaranteed. We do home visits to finalize adoptions and/or deliver the adopted dog. Therefore, we prefer potential adopters live a reasonable distance to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.

About Best Friend Pet Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Best Friend Pet Adoption (BFPA) is a no-kill animal rescue organization based in central North Carolina. BFPA has no building, office, or shelter. We are an all-foster network committed to helping dogs and cats in need of homes. Individual donations are our most important source of income as we receive no public funding.

Our purpose is to provide medical assistance, foster homes, and adoption services to previously lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals in Wake County, NC and the surrounding counties. Our mission is to educate this disposable society in which we live that every life should be valued and cherished and is directly linked to human responsibility and commitment.

Almost all the animals we rescue require immediate medical attention. BFPA never turns away or euthanizes an animal because of the expense involved in returning them to good health. All our rescued animals are evaluated for temperament, examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, microchipped (if possible) and sterilized, if age appropriate. Cats and dogs receive monthly flea/tick preventative and dogs also receive monthly heartworm preventative.

The most important ingredients we provide to these animals are loving care and a safe haven -- something most of them have never experienced. These cats and dogs live in volunteer foster homes until we find them a loving permanent home, however long it takes. We match these precious beings to a single, couple or family who understand cats and dogs should be full participating members of the family. Our hope is that these animals never have to experience being unloved again.

Since our beginning, BFPA has rescued and placed thousands of cats and dogs into their forever homes.

BFPA was created in 1998 by two Raleigh-area women who had volunteered with other established rescues in the Triangle. Their dedication to help homeless dogs and cats has led to an organization that has grown to over 225 volunteers strong.

BFPA received 501(c)(3) status in 1999.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets can be met during our adoption events (mostly on Saturdays) or by arrangements with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions require submission of an application which is processed and and must be approved by our adoption coordinator. Potential adopters then take the animal on a trial (minimum of 2 weeks) before the adoption is finalized. This helps to ensure a good fit between the adopting family and the animal. All animals must be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped before the adoption can be finalized. Adoption fee is $225 for dogs, $115 for cats.
