Dog Story: Hi, I am Ziggy, and I will be 2 yrs. old on March 11, 2014, and I am just so happy to be a part of ABR, and given a chance to have a foster mom that understands me and has given me such a great opportunity to find a family to call my own. My foster mom says I have done very well since coming to my foster home. The first few days I was always moving until collapsing to fall asleep, burning off that pent up energy. Walking on a leash was learned very quickly and I look forward to long daily walks with the other dogs in my foster home. I am house trained and use the dog doors anytime I want to! Playing in the big fenced back yard is so much fun. My foster brothers and I play tag and chase each other all over. The vet made sure I had all my shots, gave me a microchip and said my nails were much better after my foster mom clipped them. Now that I have chewy toys, my teeth are so much cleaner and I am learning to like having my foster mom brush my teeth. There are baskets of toys I get to choose from and play with all kinds of things now, as much as I want! I like chewing on toys and bones, and when they throw toys for me to fetch. My foster mom is so proud of me for not chewing on household things. My manners are so good now for rides in the car, waiting for my dinner and sitting when they give me treats. I do not mind getting washed off after walks and I do like being brushed out. The resident cat tortures one of my foster brothers, but I ignore him mostly. Sleeping on the furniture has been so nice but now that I know I can anytime I want, I often will sack out on the floor too. At night I have begun to sleep on the sofa instead of upstairs with the other dogs in my foster parents’ room. They rarely crate me at all and only for a few hours at a time which makes me very happy. Ziggy is an exceptionally happy dog. He loves people and tries hard to please when provided direction. A firm gentle hand is needed for him to continue to blossom and gain skills as he is provided opportunities to learn. Ziggy is a smart guy and needs challenges and direction, but does not require hovering/micromanaging. He would do best with a physical fence and needs at least 2 hours of daily exercise! Ziggy is a true Brittany clown that will make you smile often and laugh at his zany antics! If interested in Ziggy, please fill out the adoption application and once it is received we will then be in touch! History: Ziggy was surrendered to ABR as his family never had owned a Brittany, and he was crated most of the time as he was too active of a dog for them.
