Ziggy's Story...
Meet Ziggy - a 4-6 month old male basset hound mix pup. We have no idea what Ziggy is mixed with, but we feel he'll grow to be a medium (25-60 lbs) dog.

Ziggy came to us from a high intake, high kill shelter in Oklahoma with his brother Reese and sister Skittles. These pups are at least 4 months old. That means for the first 4 months of their precious lives, they haven't known what it feels like to be part of a family and really loved on. They went from a shelter to a foster in Oklahoma to a foster home in Mokena. Foster families are great for giving lots of love and spoiling, but we're not a forever family. Ziggy NEEDS his own forever family. He needs to know love, warmth, and belonging to someone who wants to spoil and love him to death.

Ziggy is best known for his love of snuggling. He's even been called, "one of the most adorable lap warmers" EVER. If there is a person on the couch, Ziggy is never far away. He loves, loves people. You don't need the sun to shine to have a shadow with Ziggy around. He also gets along great with other dogs and is very curious about those other furry things called kitties. The resident kitty doesn't run away, but she's yet to come down to Ziggy's low to the floor level either so they've mostly just had many stare offs while Ziggy's tail wags like crazy. Ziggy's mellow attitude and snuggly self makes him a perfect pet for a family with little children. His foster family has 3 children, ages 3-10 and even the 3 yr. old is good in Ziggy's book.

Who couldn't love a pup named Ziggy!?! He's appropriately named because everyone who meets him, loves him. I don't think this boy will last long. He's super cute, super playful, and super loving. What is not to love about this sweet pup?

Ziggy is currently being treated for demodex mange, which is not contagious. He takes a little liquid medication once a day for 30 days, which we provide, then he is retested at our expense if take to one of our participating vets.

PLEASE NOTE THAT BREED, AGE, AND SIZE AT MATURITY ARE ONLY GUESSES!

Applicants wishing to adopt a dog or puppy are carefully screened prior to adoption. Please complete our detailed pre-adoption questionnaire located at http://www.angelsonwheels.org and provide references to be considered for adoption. Once references have been checked and the applicants are approved, subject to satisfactory references, you will be able to schedule a meet and greet with the foster family.

The adoption fee of $250 includes the neuter, microchip, up to date for Distemper-Adenovirus-Parainfluenza-Parvo, heartworm tested, rabies vaccinated, dewormed with panacur, treated with Revolution or Front-Line Plus along with any other medical needs. You will also receive a free office visit to Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Wheaton Animal Hospital, and Woodridge Animal Hospital, as well as a training dvd, and tons of coupons for Petco, and a coupon for Central Bark Doggie Daycare: 10% off a purchase of a ten visit daycare package.

Please note that we are a foster based rescue and do not have a facility, which means all of our animals are cared for in homes of wonderful people who have volunteered their time to help save them.

Thank you for looking at our rescued animals and wanting to give them a wonderful home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ziggy, a Naperville Dachshund/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Dachshund/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Dachshund/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Dachshund/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
