ZIGGY – A1088500
Gone - 9-9-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/09/16*** ZIGGY IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BUT WILL DIE FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN HE HAS NO HOME! ZIGGY’s owner dumped this handsome gray guy for moving- another owner who thinks pets are disposable!! ZIGGY is EXPERIENCE rated because he was cautious about accepting petting from the assessor but warmed up quickly and allowed petting and handling except was antsy when picked up. Not anything surprising for this scary shelter environment. But the ACC wants to use this as an excuse to kill ZIGGY. ZIGGY lived with young children and was relaxed and playful with them. He likes to chase balls and toys and follow his owner around. HOW COULD THEY DUMP HIM LIKE THIS??? PLEASE GET THIS WONDERFUL 3 YEAR OLD NEUTERED BOY OUT OF HARM’S WAY AND INTO A FUREVER HOME. EMAIL [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO NOW!!
