Hi! My name is Ziggy!! I am a 3 yr old Australian Shepherd mix and I only weigh 44 pounds. I was found on the street with my 3 week old puppies. I am completely house trained and love running circles in the back yard. My foster mom is teaching me what dog toys are. I don't know how to play with a ball yet since I've never seen one before but I'm trying! I'm also a little scared of thunderstorms so I love being comforted when I hear them. My sweet babies are all about to leave me behind and move on to their new homes. Would you consider making me part of you family? I must have a meet and greet before going to my new home. I cannot go to a home with small dogs. I am living in a San Antonio Pets Alive! foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested in adopting me, please email with my name and ID#. Please allow up to 24 hours to respond, as all fosters work on a volunteer basis. To find out how you can get involved and help turn San Antonio into a no-kill city, please visit
