Ziggy - A Petfinder Happy Tail
Ziggy - posted 03/18/2013
From Ashley of Huntsville, AL
4 1/2 years ago I began my quest for a dog. I relentlessly emailed photos of dogs with a paragraph each expressing my NEED for them. Finally, my parents gave in and actually joined in on the search. After months of searching and many failed attempts of finding "the perfect match" I was beginning to give up hope. Until one night, when my mom sent me Ziggy's (then Nora) picture. She looked so sad in her kennel and I knew we needed to rescue her.
My parents made the hour drive to get her because I was finishing my last semester of college. Ziggy was the shiest puppy of the bunch and they had to disassemble the dog house to get her out so we could take her home.
She enjoys chasing squirrels, hiking, running along side the bicycle, swimming, and playing with her rescue sister Ella.
A once shy puppy now helps her shy owner be more outgoing. Some days I wonder who rescued who.
