A unique dog with a sky-high ball drive seeks a unique job and handler for possible search and rescue. Ziggy is not your average dog by any means. His ball drive is impeccable, and he has been obedience trained by Allied Dog Training in NY. Despite his many talents, we have still not been able to find that “unicorn” home for Ziggy. After spending 3 years with this extremely intelligent and driven creature, I’ve come to realize that maybe we just haven’t tried the right approach. I believe Ziggy shows amazing promise to be a search and rescue dog, for missing dogs or as a cadaver dog. While he doesn’t always do well with new people right away, he is amazing with other dogs and is committed and connected to a handler he knows and respects. He possesses all of the innate qualities for search and rescue, and has already proven himself in terms of obedience training. The next step would be search and rescue training, which given his ball drive and quick learning, should be easy work for someone involved in SAR. Ziggy is currently located in Long Island NY. Our normal adoption range is within 3 hours of NYC, but further distances would be considered for placement with SAR individuals. Ziggy is approximately 5 years old, 50 lbs, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and microchipped. He is trained for regular, prong or e-collars. He can “work” using just about any collar or leash and in any environment. Neutered and up to date with all shots
