Ginger, 8, has been through a lot of change recently. She lost her family, was taken in by a friend with great intentions, and was then surrendered to the rescue center because she couldn’t adjust to living in the new home with the other dog. Ginger may need a quiet space with a family who will allow her to decompress.
Ginger has been calm and curious at the shelter. She is fully vetted and will need her next family to help her lose a few pounds through a healthy diet and regular exercise. She might not be good around other animals or children. She is both house- and crate-trained and she knows several basic commands.
