Interested in adopting?
Ginger is 43 pounds and approximately 8 years old. We believe she is a Vizsla mix, but mostly she is just a good-natured pup. When Ginger first arrived at SVPP, it was clear that she had not received proper care for a long time. Despite losing much of her hearing to benign masses in her ears, after two sets of surgeries, Ginger is a new girl!
This lovely little dog LOVES all people, big and small. Her foster dad calls her his shadow, as her favorite pastime is following him around the house and yard all day, pausing whenever she can for a good scritch on her backside. She is also up for long walks and romps with the tennis ball. Though, perhaps her very favorite activity is going for a ride in the car!
Ginger is very polite on leash and gets on well with other dogs outside of her home, especially larger dogs. Because of her difficult past, Ginger can be overly interested in food, and has a difficult time if other dogs are eating near her, so we do not think she is well suited to live with other dogs.
Ginger does well in a home with polite cats! She was interested at first, but quickly learned to give the cats their space.
Ginger's biggest challenge is loneliness. She does not like to be left alone, so will do best in a family where her people are home most of the time or can take her with them on most outings. Work with a high quality, fear-free trainer is recommended to help Ginger with this fear.
Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.
