Looking for some spice in your life? Add Ginger!
Ginger’s original owner passed her along to a coworker when they were no longer able to take care of her, and she was in rough shape with skin and ear infections and an allergy issue. Her new owner worked to get Ginger healthy again before surrendering this gal to rescue.
Ginger has a lot of love to give and isn’t asking for much in return. She’s happy walking a few times a day, playing with her stuffed dragon, getting some quality pets, and being close to her people and meeting new ones. She also loves car rides.
Her ideal home will provide lots of attention, where she will be the only pet because of her high prey drive. A home with older kids who can help with her potty training would be nice. A fenced yard is preferred to keep her from running off to chase a squirrel or bird--in any case, she is allergic to feathers and down, so it’s best to keep her entire environment bird-free.
She does need a consistent schedule, as she is still working on her house training. Ginger doesn’t mind being left in the crate while you’re out, but will let you know she prefers to be free while you’re at home. Currently, she is left home while her humans are at work, but they come by at lunch to check in on her. Ginger is very sociable, so she would probably be fine as an office dog as well.
Ginger is mostly a happy-go-lucky girl, and who can resist that face? It shouldn’t be hard to give her the love and attention she needs.
“Lady Ginger is a very sweet and loving girl. She loves to cuddle and sleep next to you and deserves to have a very loving home. If you are ready for an addition to the family who will make you smile and is happy to be home, this will be the right Frenchie for you.”
If you would like to adopt Ginger, be prepared to travel. Ginger is being fostered in North Carolina and will not be shipped.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
Ginger was spayed in July and had a lump removed. The lump was benign.
Ginger is a true barefoot southern girl, and she was treated for hookworms in July.
Ginger is allergic to feathers and must avoid feather pillows and down blankets.
Ginger has a high prey drive and must never be around cats, birds, or other small animals. Please note that potty training is a work in progress, and there may be some back-sliding with the excitement of a move.
Go Ginger, Go! I wish you best of luck and hope very soon you will find your forever family. Elena.
