He’s a mighty Yorkshire Terrier dog, aka Yorkie. His mightiness shows everywhere he goes and brings a smile to all he meets. Ziggy can be a little naughty sometimes, especially with the help of his partner in crime. His adorableness is multiplied when he’s wearing one of his many fashion accessories and costumes. You’ll see in the photos below. Scroll down to see all of them.
Check out these fun facts about him as told by his human mom, Tara.
Why did you get your dog?
We wanted a new puppy to love after the loss of our beloved Wednesday, the Havanese.
Your Dog’s Breed or Mixed
How did you decide on your dog’s name?
Ziggy is from Ziggy Stardust, the glam alter ego of David Bowie. My daughter and I are huge fans.
What is your dog’s favorite toy?
Anything the squeaks really loudly or crunches!
What is your dog’s favorite treat?
He sure loves a great bully stick!
How do you spoil your dog?
Ziggy has a village that takes care of him. He loves going to daycare at least twice a week. Although he is short in stature he makes up for it very much in attitude. He is the one that runs the daycare and he is in charge! He also loves to go with his dog walker a couple of times a week. Hanging at the groomers is another fun day to meet and greet with other friends. Ziggy is also very styling and loves to rock a great outfit. On top of this, he so enjoys his Bowser box of treats and toys he gets once a month.
What’s a funny story about your dog or how does your dog make you laugh?
Ziggy loves his kennel but not like you would think. Instead of lying inside it he loves to lie on top of the kennel so it is like a hammock of sorts. The doggie daycare got an actual hammock bed and Ziggy was the first one in it and wouldn’t let anyone else get on either.
How do you have fun and play with your dog?
Ziggy’s favorite pal in the house to play with is Pumpkin the cat and they run and jump and rumble. Once he is tired from all his playing, he loves to curl up with our senior dog Lola and have a snooze. I always say a tired Ziggy is a good Ziggy.
Is there anything special or unique about your dog? If so, what is it?
He has a mighty dog attitude and can easily take down a big dog if they are getting in his way or they are getting too rough with him. I call him a Mastiff Yorkie as he acts way larger than his small size.
What else would you like to share about your dog?
Ziggy and Pumpkin the cat are always up to mischief, they work as a team to get into trouble together. The cat loves to give him things that he can’t reach like the drain in a sink, an ornament off the tree, a kibble from her dish, etc.
