GINGER is a 6 month old BC mix. She is a sweet, goofy bundle of love who wants to play all day! She is a typical puppy with lots of energy to play ball, wrestle with her foster pack mates or chew on bones. GINGER is very affectionate and loves lots of attention. She will follow you around the house wanting to see if you are doing anything interesting or perhaps have something delicious. GINGER has been very well behaved in the house with no destructive chewing; she is provided with bones and antlers to chew and that seems to keep her happy. She is very cat curious and loves to engage them in play. She is calming down with the cats after being around them for a few days but still loves to play with them (see photos below!). She is not aggressive with the cats in any way, she is just really playful. The cats at her foster are dog savvy and enjoy playing with her, so she would be fine in a home with cats as long as they are dog tolerant.

GINGER is a medium to high energy girl who needs plenty of playtime but she will reward you with unwavering love and devotion. She settles down nicely in the evening once things are quiet. She is potty trained with no accidents in the house. She sleeps well in her crate all night. GINGER is learning how to walk on a leash and is making good progress but sometimes pulls when excited. Keep in mind, she is just a pup still and will benefit from basic training. She was shy at first about the car, but has gotten used to it after only a few trips and loads up fine now. 

GINGER is a really lovely girl with a super sweet disposition. She is going to make some lucky person a wonderful companion. All she asks for is your love and attention. 

GINGER is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
