Meet Zig! Shih Poo Mix

BCFS is delighted to be rescuing this handsome little boy named Zig! He’s a one-year-old Benji-looking mix coming into BCFS’s foster care from the SPCA Serving Erie County.

Zig is an excitable young boy who gets along well with other dogs and cats.  He’s neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.

Zig had a rough start living homeless with his people. When it got to the point they were unable to care for him Zig found himself at the shelter.

The family tried again to care for Zig, but after a few months he was returned to the shelter.

The lack of stability in Zig’s life has left him wary of strangers.


Zig is anxious when cornered and has shown signs of fear aggression. The foster family and our trainer Lauren are working together to build Zig’s confidence and teach him that the world is a kind loving place.


A dog-savvy home that has experience with fear aggression is our only hope  for Zig to find a forever home.

Zig is not suitable for families with young children due to his fear aggression. We are continuing to work on his issues and maintain hope for his future.

Healthy Zig
