Italian Greyhounds are the smallest of the sighthounds, but like all sighthounds, they are known for having big hearts relative to their size.
Ziggy is no different. He is a wonderful little guy, who only became available because of an unfortunate set of circumstances for his previous owner. “The happiest, sweetest, most gentle dog I have ever known,” is how Ziggy’s owner described him.
He will be five years old this month and is full of life. However, Ziggy was recently diagnosed with diabetes, so he does have to receive two insulin shots everyday. His new owner will have to be willing to take on the responsibility of his daily care. In return, you will receive the love of a little guy that loves to cuddle in your lap, adores children and gets along great with cats.
Ziggy is a very social guy at dog parks and on his walks, so he will occasionally pull on his leash a little bit. But it’s only because he wants to be everyone’s friend.
