From the Foster: Ginger is an adorable, sweet, loving dog. She thinks she is a lap dog and loves to cuddle. She also loves to play and go for walks. She loves obedience training (and treats!). She is a smart girl and likes to be challenged. Ginger can get antsy if she doesn't get her play time, walks, doggy daycare days, etc. so if you want a complete couch potato, she might not be the dog for you. Her exercise needs are far from excessive - we live in an apartment and we go for 2 short walks a day and she spends a couple days at doggy daycare to get her play on and she does well with that. I do think she would love a home with another dog friend, or a yard that she could play ball in or run around in, too.
While Ginger does well at doggy daycare, I wouldn't recommend a dog park with her. She can get a little overwhelmed with that kind of play style and chaos. In a controlled situation though she thrives.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
