Facts about Hertz

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10488989

Hertz is a 3-year-old pittie with beautiful green eyes, a golden-brown coat, and adorable white markings including 'dipped' toes. He is 48 pounds of handsome and machismo! This strong boy loves nothing more than to run, play and join in on the fun. Watch his videos to see how great he is with other dogs!

Hertz was saved from a high-kill shelter in California after months and months of waiting, and is finally in Seattle waiting to find his forever home. He was pretty impressive off transport - he was excited, friendly, and ready to hang. He has been placed with a foster so that we can help him acclimate to life outside of the shelter and learn all about him!

FOSTER UPDATE 8/29:  He's doing so well - you'd never know that he'd been in boarding for a year. He gets along really well with our puppy Izzy and totally tolerates her puppy energy, as well as my neighbors 8-month-old shepherd. Izzy and Hertz even shared the couch together for some lounging. We have yet to test his behavior around a more dominant male.

5 star kiddo status! Even with a pack of neighborhood kids hanging at my house, he never once exhibited a sign of being nervous. He jumps a little, but didn't do it to any of the kids, and he's learning quickly. I even think he'd do well with toddlers - but of course this would need to be tested.

He rarely barks, even when someone knocks at the door. He knows when to relax and chill out but can do sprints in the yard. Not one potty accident in the house. Overall - he's a really good boy with a great temperament and he's going to make a great dog for some lucky family!

ADOPTION INFO: Hertz's fee of  $495  includes his neuter, all vaccinations - Rabies, DPPV, Bordetella-, microchipping, health certificate, grooming, and transport from California to Seattle.   This adoption fee helps support the rescue of Death Row Dogs. Ginger's Pet Rescue is a 501 C 3 non-profit operation.

About Ginger's Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is one of the largest non-profit pet rescue organizations in Washington state, and we specialize in saving Death Row Dogs. Our mission is to give homeless animals with no hope the life they deserve through rescue, foster and adoption. We rely on a large network of fosters in the Seattle area, who provide our dogs with love and care during transition from rescue to adoption. We do not have a physical shelter location; to meet the dogs in our rescue, contact us to connect with a foster or join us at an adoption event!

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We rely solely on the support from adoption fees and donations to help us provide for the ~100+ dogs in our rescue at any given time.

How We Rescue

We take in dogs from local families in need, in state and out of state shelters, and we also work with overseas rescue groups on occasion. We do not discriminate – we rescue dogs small and big, old and young, healthy and sick, purebred and Heinz 57! Our belief is that every dog deserves a forever home.
Our History

Ginger’s Pet Rescue was founded in 2006 by Ginger Luke after saving one Dachshund’s life turned into a life-long endeavor. The organization is dedicated to providing great care for our dogs and adoption efforts!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Ginger's Pet Rescue has all our dogs in foster care.

You must complete an application and then you can meet the dogs by appointment with the foster dog parents.

You may also come to one of our adoption events to meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application in person:

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to or submit via our Contact Form on our website. This application will allow us to know more about your family, what kind of pet will fit best and your home, and whether you will be a good match for one of our dogs. Please include the dog(s) you are interested in on the application. We review applications upon receipt and will reply as soon as possible, usually within 1-2 days.

Adoption fees range from $300-$700 depending on a number of the factors, and adoption fees are what allow us to continue our rescue, as our primary source of funding.

If for any reason the dog does not work out, we are willing to take the dog back and refund your adoption fee less a $100 rehoming fee.
