Zippy's a star in the making

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 18 September 2011 | 2 Comments


I first met Zippy in 2010, he was very masticated and didn’t weigh enough to have sterilised, this broke my heart so I took him home as a foster dog to help him put some weight on...


Well he soon became friends with “Cuddles” (Whippet) and “Bella” (Staffy x) but especially LOVES “Hazel” (Sharpei x). Hazel taught him to play tug o war, funny to watch a 40kg dog play tug with a 10kg dog....  he is really affectionate and loves to sleep with his mum every night..loves car rides and to go for a run with me..

Zippy lives up to his name as he is like a mountain goat at home jumping over all the furniture, and talk about FAST, when he kicks that 3rd gear on there is NO STOPPING HIM!  And not many other dogs can keep up! 

I decided that I couldn’t separate him and Hazel as they really love each other, so I adopted him early in 2011 and since then he has been attending Challenger TAFE with me while I do my dog training accreditation, but absolutely loves attending agility classes with Paw Prints Pet Training... Georgia said Zippy is “to watch this space – a star in the making”... he is the most confident Whippet I ever met....who thinks he’s a Rottweiler...
