Isla Ziggy – From Street Dog To Island Celebrity To Sweet Home Alabama

My name is Isla Ziggy. You can call me Ziggy.  My name used to be Lloyd. I live on an island called Isla Mujeres which is in Mexico. I am part yellow lab and ALL lover. I love everybody. My four legged furry mom and dad couldn’t keep me so I was on my own for awhile – living on the streets of Isla Mujeres. I ate rocks and whatever friendly humans would feed me or throw away in a plastic bag. It was very hard living on the street – especially when it was really hot or really rainy.

People call me a miracle dog because of everything I have been through in my short time on this round thing (I hear it is called earth), so, I guess I am a miracle dog.  I am not sure if that gets me more treats or not, but I am happy with the love and attention (and treats) that I get now. They think that I don’t know that I am a dog….but I do.  I just don’t want them to know that I know.  I will stop in occasionally and tell you more of my story.  I am excited that I have my own FaceBook page though if you want to follow my rescue and subsequent adventures.  I am told that for more of my rescue story, you can Click Here For Isla Ziggy’s FaceBook Page  

I hope that you enjoy the occasional post where my mom will help me tell my rescue story periodically.  Maybe you will even feel led to welcome your own furry Isla Rescue into your permanent family. We will also share some interesting stories and information about Isla Mujeres and other travel type information.  I may even get extra treats from my mom for all the help I will give her. I like treats.

Life is good now.  I live in Alabama with my two legged family and my 6 furry brothers and sisters.

We look forward to welcoming you to our island home on Isla Mujeres, Mexico – CASA MÚSICA DEL CARIBE.
