Ziggy's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Ziggy's Story...
Ziggy is a treasure! A neutered blue merle male with one brown and one
blue eye, he is athletic, playful, comical and affectionate. He loves
to fetch his toys, go for walks and ride in the car. At four years
old, he has a high energy level and MUST have daily exercise to stay
grounded. He seems like a prime candidate for agility or other
structured activities, as he is very fit and thrives on attention and
rules. He’d also make a great jogging partner. (Of course, he could
certainly be exercised in a backyard, using a “chuck-it” to throw his
toys over and over!) Ziggy gets along with most other dogs and adores
the older male at his foster home. He could also be an only dog, as he
relishes personal attention. Ziggy was under-socialized when he came
into rescue and has some quirks, so he will not be adopted to a home
with young children. He is just beginning to blossom. He is making
progress on a simple at-home training routine, which should be
continued and will be provided (in writing) to the lucky adopter who
offers Ziggy a home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ziggy, a La Habra Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in La Habra, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in La Habra.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Habra 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 La Habra 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Habra paves the way for another one to be saved.
