Dog from Hoarding Case Recovering from Neglect

Six-year-old Ziggy is a Great Pyrenees with quite a sad story to tell. Ziggy came to the Kentucky Humane Society after being rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from a hoarding/neglect situation. Ziggy was one of 48 dogs found living in deplorable conditions in Reagan, Tennessee. He, along with numerous other dogs, was found chained outdoors with inadequate food, water and veterinary care.

After being saved, the poor emaciated dog was rushed to a veterinarian where he was treated for multiple internal parasites, ear infections in both ears, eye infections and had to be shaved due to the severe matting in his coat. These days Ziggy is doing much better, but his road to recovery isn’t quite over. He’s still quite underweight and he tested positive for heart worms, so he is undergoing treatment. Heart worms are not contagious but can be deadly when left untreated. Because of this, Ziggy will be a “foster” dog until he tests negative for heart worms and the Kentucky Humane Society will take care of all his heart worm treatments until then. This means he is available to go home with you as a “foster-to-adopt” dog, and you can formalize the adoption once he tests negative.

Ziggy has been through so much and needs a loving, patient family to help deal with the trauma of his past. Do you have enough love in your heart and room in your home for this incredibly sweet and gentle boy? If so, please give Ziggy a chance. Ziggy is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
