Tell us about your 4 legged family member, Dog's Name, Breed, Age, Tricks ???

Ziggy is a friendly and energetic dog who loves everyone. He has gone everywhere with me from road trips to baseball games and is used to crowds and loud noises (and seems to enjoy it). He has basic training and can perform tricks such as: sit, down, stay, touch, paw and even does some unique ones such as dig (which comes in handy when I do my gardening, and run (which is good in the warm weather when we go running). He goes with me to work sometimes because he is used as a therapy dog for some of my students. Ziggy has also accompanied me on several pet store protests. His full name is Ziggy Niemi Noah Wales (Niemi after the former BHawk goalie and Noah after Bulls center Joakim Noah). We're a big sports family. We've been in the Oak Lawn area since 2007 from the North side and have been trying to find doggie groups and play dates to set up for him. Since we live in a condo, and don't have a yard or other dogs I want to keep him active.

What vet does your dog go to?

He sees Dr. Messina who works at the Worth Animal Hospital and the AWL in Chicago Ridge. We have frequented both offices.

Are you prepared to provide shot records from your last vet visit to prove your dog is current on Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper, Fecal, as well as a Flea and Tick Prevention?

Yes. Ziggy is currently up to date on all shots and I can bring his recent vet records.


Hello, my name is Rachel and this is my 3 1/2 year old pug/doxen rescue Ziggy. I teach environmental education & coach youth and Special Olympics soccer and basketball. My husband is head of the math dept at a charter school and coaches football.
