More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Ziggy is friendly, loving, caring, obedient, loves to play, loves to walk and is eager to please.
He also enjoys playing fetch and responds well to recall.
Ziggy likes to feel safe, loved, cared for and secure. Other favourites include cuddles, pats, food, playing fetch, walks, and belly rubs.
This gentle fellow may cower if he hears an unexpected bang or raised voice. He enjoyed the company of his fur-sister, the adorable vizsla in the movie, until she sadly passed away and was once used by the RSPCA to help calm other anxious dogs.
As Ziggy is very smart he responds well to clear boundaries and established routines - these should help him settle into his new home more quickly.
Ziggy will suit active couples or singles looking for a companion dog.
He is currently living in harmony with a toddler however, he prefers a quiet, calm environment. Hence, we recommend a home without permanent kids.
While Ziggy prefers company he can cope alone - ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as he is a central focus when people are home.
Another permanent friendly, placid dog would be nice but is not essential. Ziggy has not been known to instigate an altercation but may possibly respond if challenged by another dog.
Ziggy will not suit homes with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As Ziggy is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
He will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker or destructive.
Ziggy will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active. He needs daily walks and/or playtime.
When ON a lead ...
When OFF a lead ...
Stays close by and comes when called - well, most of the time :-)
