Ginger is an Australian Kelpie cattle dog combined with the jumping abilities of some sort of terrier. Basically she is a true mutt. The owners of ZippyDogs adopted Ginger in April of 2006. She now has a good home and is proud to be a part of the ZippyDogs pack. Woof!

 

 

Jagger, Devil Dog II (Mr. Bubby Nugget)

No email because I do not have an opposable thumb.

Education:

Seattle DogWorks – Puppy Class I
Sit, Down, & Stay – I have forgotten everything I learned! But I still come to my recall words “Jagger TACO” cuz I love, love, love canned spray cheese.

Specialties:

He is a ferocious protector of our telephone lines and never lets any crow rest too long.  At night, Jagger is the protector of the skies, alerting us to airplane lights – this function does not win him points with anyone.  His true specialty is bugging his big sister Ginger and true to his breed; he nips at her ankles daily, especially to speed her out the dog door when she is moving too slowly.

Pedigree:

Jagger is a pure bred Schipperke. He shows all the traits of his breed; nosey, tough, ornery, thinks he is big stuff and lets you know it, but he’s cute as a bear cub. Everything is his and don’t you forget it.  But don’t let the tough guy attitude fool you, he is a cuddling lap dog too. Hobbies include:  foraging for peanuts left by squirrels, spying on the neighbor’s kids and peeing on Kelli’s grill.
