Ziggy is a 4 1/2 year old Boxer Mix. He was adopted from our rescue when he was 18 months old. He is a sweet guy, and loves his family and children. Unfortunately, he has to be rehomed because his Mom had back surgery, and Ziggy is just too strong for her to walk him. Since they have younger kids, they wouldn't be able to control walking him either.
Ziggy got along with the families other Boxer and they would play all day. Sadly the other Boxer passed away last year and Ziggy really misses him.
Ziggy is very strong and could use more training to work on his leash walking as he pulls. He is fine with children, but to powerful for kids to walk him. He can be reactive around other dogs at times on leash, but can easily be redirected. He is typically fine with introductions to other dogs, as long as it's done properly. Ziiggy must have a home with a fenced in yard. This guy is a sweetie, and quite handsome. Please consider helping him find a new family.
