Story
Ziggy is loving, fun, and well trained. Parents are purebred St. Bernard and Standard Poodle, from a breeder in MS, born 9/26/2020. After we had twins, as Ziggy matured, he started having leash reactivity in the neighborhood. At home, we have frequent visitors, and Ziggy is enthusiastic and loving once introduced. He once did snap at a child that came at him too roughly. He also once got out of our backyard (gate was left open) and bit a neighborhood dog, who needed stitches. He used to have doggy playdates, and though those always went well, we decided to stop as a precaution. This decision has been tremendously difficult. We love Ziggy. We've put a lot of effort into training and medicating him (currently on gabapentin and clomipramine). As our kids get older, we will be unable to adequately mitigate the chance of Ziggy getting let out. We are hoping to home Ziggy with folks that have a more remote space to let Ziggy run around, and ideally where we can keep in touch with him.
