Ziggy's Info...

Ziggy's Story...
Ziggy is a wonderful boy who is coming into the care of Italian Greyhound Place due to unfortunate lifestyle changes of his owner (divorce, foreclosure, bankruptcy, unemployment, and a necessary move).

Ziggy, who will be five-years old in December), was diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago and receives two insulin injections, twice daily, after meals. Therefore, it is necessary for his adopter to accept and be willing and able to care for this condition.

"The happiest, sweetest, most gentle dog I have ever known," is how Ziggy's owner describes him. He loves to cuddle on your lap or under covers, but has an active side as well. Outgoing, with no tendency to be aloof, Zigs adores children, lives with a cat, and loves other dogs. Due to his socialability, he tends to pull on his leash when he sees people (something that could be worked on, without making him less social!). His favorite play companion is currently a dachshund who lives near him, and he enjoys visiting the dog park and playing with other small dogs (large dogs could inadvertently hurt him). Ziggy is housetrained ("goes" outside and on doggy pee pads), and does not have accidents or mark in his current home. Since Ziggy does not like his crate, when he has to be left alone, he stays in the kitchen with the cat. He travels nicely in the car.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ziggy, a Croton Italian Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound for sale in Croton, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Croton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Croton 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 Croton 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 Italian Greyhound breeders who help with Italian Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Croton paves the way for another one to be saved.
