Ziggy needs a new home ASAP! He is a five year old pit/ boxer/ lab mix. Neutered and UTD on shots.
We took him in as an emergency foster, but his time with us is coming to an end. We have had a few dog fights, unexpected vet visits, and we just recently had a goat attack and lost one of them due to it.
He has such a personality but unfortunately needs someone with experience in aggressive behaviors. He needs slow introductions to other dogs and is not a fan of some even after an introduction, others he is amazing with. We live on a hobby farm and he does well with the chickens and the kittens but just needs to be monitored when around them for a longer period.
He has really come a long way since we have had him (about 5 months) and I truly believe he can overcome his issues with more time (my hubby on the other hand is out of patience). He is goofy, a great snuggler, LOVES the water, does GREAT in the house when left alone (does not like to be kenneled and will destroy it). , he has a very gentle mouth with treats, but if you wrestle with him he does get a little too into it and needs some more work there.
We don't know a lot about his history except his aggression (not food), and that he was on the list to be put down that day. I truly feel like I failed him because now we are faced with putting him down if we can't find a home for him ASAP. With fostering other dogs and our farm animals I just can't risk it anymore.
Requirements: You would need to have experience in aggressive behaviors, have somewhat of a country home/ private area for a home as being in town with other dogs would not suit him well and he does need some activity and dogs parks are also probably a no go for awhile until he is continued to work with.
He needs to find a home by next week or we are having to put him down :(
Please no negative comments, we just are hoping there is someone out there that has the time and passion to continue to work with Ziggy. I am willing to travel as well for a home for him.
Rehoming fee does apply.
