Meet Zig. He’s a unique-looking pup who is shy with new people, but with a little time and a doggie friend by your side, his playful personality begins to shine. This 2-and-a-half-year-old mixed breed fellow has these intensely ice-blue eyes that are just stunning to look at. He originally came from a hoarding situation, so he will always have a little stress and fear at times. But he’s made so much progress in his time at the SPCA of Texas. Zig’s favorite thing in the world is playing outside with his doggie friends, and he has a lot of them. Zig is friendly and polite, so he’s very popular with other dog-friendly pups. Zig will need a home with a fenced-in yard and a doggie sibling for him to play with. Kids in the home need to be 12 and up, and he’d like to meet all members of the household before going home with you to make sure it’s a good fit. The SPCA of Texas is still celebrating Shelter Pet Summer, so you can adopt an adult dog or cat from the SPCA of Texas’ shelters for only $25! The special will be offered for pets located at the SPCA of Texas’ shelters and in their foster homes, and adoptions will be by appointment only. Zig is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Zig, please fill out the application at

Adoptions will be available by appointment. Adopters will need to submit an adoption inquiry form in order to begin the adoption process and schedule an appointment to complete the adoption. Please browse our available animals at and visit to inquire about a dog or to inquire about a cat.
