Facts about Ziggy Stardust

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Pug Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hey there, I'm Ziggy Stardust! I'm a fun little guy with the biggest heart in the world. I live in a foster home with a crew of dogs that range from small seniors to large sassy dogs and I get along great with all of them. I also have a foster mom and dad that I love to follow around the house. I'm the kind of guy who is a bit timid at first but I warm up quickly and I find my person and I fall in love with them. I love to hang out on my foster moms lap and watch movies when she gets home from work. When she leaves I calmly go in my kennel without complaint. I also always let her know when it's time to go outside and I don't have accidents in the house. Although I do like dogs and get along fine with them, I would be absolutely fine as an only dog. If you are looking for a calm fun little dog to be your best friend for life, look no further. Pick Me!

Our adoption application can be found at http://www.aliverescuememphis.org/adoptionapplication/

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you submit an application immediately to start the adoption process. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, ALIVE Rescue Memphis is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

About ALIVE Rescue Memphis - Nashville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

ALIVE Rescue Memphis is a branch of ALIVE Rescue, a very successful foster based rescue that has been going strong in Chicago for over 6 years.
Besides adopting out homeless animals, we also do reach out days at children's hospitals and senior living programs. Providing pet owners with all the tools they need is also very important to us. We plan to do community pet days, like our branch in Chicago, and supply vaccines and microchip to low income pet owners. Our desire is to keep pets in homes, and out of the shelters,
Our mission statement is ALIVE Rescue Memphis is an animal rescue that protects the lives and the rights of animals. We believe every animal has the right to a well-balanced, socialized and fulfilled life. We take on the responsibility to save, rehabilitate and place abandoned, abused and stray animals. We believe strongly in education, and providing pet owners with the tools they need to keep their animals happy and healthy pets. ALIVE Rescue Memphis promotes sustainable living & cruelty free living by building awareness, appreciation and respect for all animals and the environment within our communities.
