Meet Ginger

Ginger will be 2 in November, about 35 lbs, spayed, micro chipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, and is on monthly heartworm/flea tick prevention. She has been with me for a bit over a year and its beyond time for her to find her family.

Ginger is from GA where she was found on the side of the road with her sister (Snap) and Momma (Cookie). She was fostered with her sister who has been adopted. Ginger is wondering where her family is??? She wants to sleep in the big bed with her humans just like her sister does.

Gingers wish list......a home with a yard to run and explore. A quiet area without a lot of noise or traffic (shes a country girl). A family who is home more than not. A family with patience, and time to continue her training and introduce her slowly to new things. Maybe a furry brother or sister to play with. She is very gentle and cautious with children. Ginger would not do well in a busy appartment environment (she can be vocal) or crated long hrs daily. She has no fear of thunder or the weekend fireworks. Ginger would be a great hiking buddy.
Ginger is housebroken but has an issue with submissive peeing, it only seems to happen with my Grandson when he first comes in the door and then she is fine. Her crate is a safe place when new people are visiting. It's best to slowly introduce new people outside where she can take her time sniffing and meeting them. We work on sit, paw and down, she is so smart and does well on leash, though easily distracted by all the sniffs and new experiences. She does very well riding in the car, and is very easy to vet, they all love her. Ginger is still just a big pup who loves to play with her Foster siblings.

Ginger is just the sweetest girl, who loves to show off her pearly white teeth, her underbite makes her so uniquely adorable. Ginger can't help it, her teeth are always showing. Ginger is just a very happy little dog, her tail is always wagging. She loves everyone, gets along very well with my young Grandsons when they aren't bouncing around the house, she'll just find a quiet place until they sit, then she will come in for sniffs, love and kisses.

Ginger is very submissive to other dogs, she will just lay down waiting, wanting acceptance, shes a lover, not a fighter. Once the threat is gone and she feels safe she joins in the play. Ginger is 1 of 4 dogs in my home and they all get along wonderfully. She likes to stalk the chipmunks who taunt her from the other side of the fence, play with balls and squeaky toys. She is sleek and fast , loves to run laps with her partner in crime, Blair. They have a strong bond and are always together, either playing or laying on the couch.
Ginger can be a bit vocal when she wants out of her crate, or its feeding time, she is a great watch dog, will let you know if someone she doesn't know is outside the fence. She sleeps all night in her crate with no issues, and is crated when I have to run errands, other than that she has free range with the others. When I get home from errands I am thoroughly examined from head to toe, she has to sniff me all over to see where I've been.
Ginger enjoys watching TV and loves to cuddle up with you on the couch. Some of her favorite things are shoes and socks and she seems to have a foot fetish so keep those socks on or she'll give you a pedicure.
Ginger loves the water and likes to chase the minnows around. One of her favorite things to do is just sniff, take it all in, nose in the air, wind blowing her ears and just sniff! Another favorite thing is to dig, she digs standing up, she digs lying down. and sometimes she digs sideways. It's so much fun !
