Don’t let his serious face fool you – this week’s Diamond in the Ruff is an incredibly happy boy! Meet Ziggy (ID 587401). He is 1 year and 4 months old, weighs around 60lbs, and has been waiting for his second chance at happiness since early February.

JR Dunn Diamond in the Ruff Ziggy

This raven-furred beauty is very friendly, and we think he would make a great family dog. He is pretty active (he’s still a puppy at heart), and absolutely loves to go on walks. He has never lived with other pets before, but he has a very social demeanor and may make a great addition to your fur family.

Ziggy was quite stressed in the shelter environment (hence the serious photo), so he is currently relaxing in a foster home. His foster family has nothing but fabulous things to say about him! And, thanks to our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers, his adoption fee has been fully-sponsored! To schedule a meet-and-greet with this delightful dog, just call 954.989.3977 x 6 and ask about him.

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
