Ziggy Marley has one beloved dog named Romeo. Romeo is a Lagotto Romagnolo, which is a breed known for its thick, curly hair. Marley got Romeo just before the COVID pandemic started in 2020. Romeo’s curly locks inspired Marley to collaborate with a dog grooming brand to create the HAPPYBOND x Ziggy Marley Grooming Collection. He also created a dog superfood brand called Ziggy Marley Apawthecary. He wrote a song dedicated to his fur kid, “My Dog Romeo” (see below), with Marley going on to write a children’s book, also titled My Dog Romeo.
