If you are looking for a sweet and loving companion, Ginger could be your girl. It’s hard to tell from the photos, but this girl is a little munchkin at a little over 20 pounds. She’s a little under a year old. She’s got legs that are very short in comparison to her body, think of a dachshund-ish shape, though we have no idea what breeds make up this brindle cutie.
Ginger has been at the shelter less than a week as of writing this; it’s a new situation for her and she’s still a little unsure of all the new surroundings and who can blame her. She needs some time to decompress and relax to really blossom. She looks to her handler for direction and reassurance. Right now loud noises are a little scary for her, so she’d like someone who will keep in mind that she needs some time to settle into a new home and not be thrown into the hubbub of a busy household right away. She was in a foster home prior to coming to the shelter and they say she is a delightful and happy girl who is good with dogs, cats, and people. If you are interested in meeting Ginger, fill out our application at, or fill out an application in person at the shelter. An approved application is required prior to a meeting.
