Meet Ginger Jan 24 - A Special Hospice Baby

Thank you for your interest in dog who needs a new home. Adoption can be one of the most fulfilling experiences in your life and especially in the life of your new canine companion.

A note to those looking at CPR. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. Our job is to find those someone's. Our most successful adopters come to CPR not because they want a dog. They come to us because they want to give a dog a home. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known.

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days? If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application. You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side. You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes? Please drop a note to with your name, address and phone # and email. We'll add you to our mailing list.

BUDDY ID MICROCHIPDate into Rescue: 1/14/2024
Reason for being in rescue: owner release/health of owner
Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs? Ginger is a hot mess for sure. Her last vertebra has a bony growth and a loss of disc space. There is no fix for this. This abnormality of her spine causes her to be occasionally urine incontinent. If you lift her tail up and try to change her posture, she will snap because it hurts. You will need a professional to do sanitary grooms. Otherwise, she's sweet as can be. She is on a non-steroidal anti inflammatory medication (meloxicam). Going through1800petmeds, meloxicam 7.5 mg pills are .18 cents per day and she gets one pill per day. She is also on gabapentin but gabapentin at her dose must be purchased from your vet. She also has a heart murmur (1/6) that does not require any meds. She is currently on cytopoint which runs roughly $100 per month. We think that with a dedicated owner who will keep her on specific diet and give her regular baths, that this can be discontinued. She was not on it before she came to us.
Weight: 20 lb but needs to gain up to about 22 lbs
Height: 14 in at the shoulder
Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Adoption Fee: $1 - I am priceless

Fence needed? No

What kind of home would be best for me? Ginger is a middle-aged girl who's looking to spend the best years of her life in a home, not in a kennel. She would love to go with her BFF Precious. They have always lived together. Both Ginger and Precious are taking a while to adjust to living here at CPR. They are used to living in a house and being pampered and loved on constantly. They are looking for a forever family that can once again, provide them with that life that they are so accustomed to. They need a calm home with owners that will be home most, if not all, of the day. They will do well in either an apartment or house.

What is my personality like? Ginger and Precious have warmed up considerably since first coming to us but both are still apprehensive about their surroundings. Their personalities will shine once they are safely lodged in their new forever home. Ginger is the more confident of the two and Precious takes her cues from Ginger. Neither girl will rush to meet you or jump on you. They both love affection being shown to them.

How do I act when I first meet new people? Ginger is wary but loves pets and any attention paid to her as it's what she had come to expect from her former home. Sit down on the floor, give her a minute or five, and let come to you. That is the best way to approach Ginger. When you do you will see her come in for pets. Then she will climb into your lap for ear rubs and more pets. She may even provide a few wet kisses if you are lucky. When you stop petting Ginger she'll shoot you a side eye or a fallen glare as if to say, "I have not given you permission to stop petting me." She thinks she's royalty and who's to tell her that she's not? Nothing stops her butt wiggle!

Other tips and tidbits: Our vet estimates Ginger's birthday to be 3/31/2014.

House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. Most of our dogs are at our farm in Pacolet, South Carolina.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.

Thank you for considering CPR.
