Ginger is a beautiful 1-2 year-old Yellow Lab mix female who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter as a stray. She was very underweight when she arrived at the shelter. When she wasn’t claimed, she made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could gets lots of TLC in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. We don’t know what kind of life Ginger led before coming into the shelter, but just about everything seems new to her. She is very shy and trying to figure out what to make of her life now. Ginger gets along well with other dogs but isn’t comfortable enough yet to play with others. She feels very secure in a crate (she loves relaxing in her crate) and watching all the activity around her from that vantage point. Ginger walks fairly well on a leash for a dog who has probably not had much experience with one yet. She has had excellent crate manners in her foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Ginger would do best in a quiet home with a calm, mature dog to show her ropes and a secure aboveground fenced yard for her to relax in when she’s outdoors. It’s going to be a rewarding experience for her new family to watch Ginger relax and start enjoying life to the max in her new home. Ginger weighs about 41 pounds but is very thin and will need to gain about 10 pounds to be at her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Ginger.
