Ziggy arrived in very poor condition, with all of her bones showing. Some preliminary testing revealed a congenital condition called Mega-esophagus, meaning that she cannot properly swallow her food without special feeding arrangements. Thanks to a very dedicated foster family, Ziggy has learned to eat in a special chair that facilitates swallowing. She’s taken to her Bailey’s Chair like a champ, and she’s already gaining weight. This girl likes to eat now that she can keep her food down!
Her foster family was concerned because she was so thin and the cold weather appeared to be bothering her. So, they bought her some colorful pajamas and Ziggy let everyone know she quite enjoys being the doggy fashionplate of the household.
Ziggy loves to be held & will follow people around, in hopes of getting petted (which usually works). She loves to run & play with her foster brother & sisters and will initiate play.
Ziggy can live a full life if her adopter follows the proper protocols for Mega-esophagus, including providing her with multiple small meals a day, rather than one or two larger meals. She will always require the feeding chair, which will accompany her upon adoption. To learn more about making Ziggy a member of your family, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
