Ginger's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ginger's Story...
Hi, I'm Ginger, a beautiful girl that looks like a boxer-shepherd mix, looking for my forever home. I'm a fun and active girl about 8 months old, weighing in at 40-something pounds, just leaving my puppyhood, moving into adolescence, and learning my manners. I have so many other awesome qualities which include being potty-trained, sitting on command, and having a great temperament. I'm currently learning the "down" command and to walk better on leash and can't wait to go to obedience school with my new humans so I can add to my repertoire.

The neighborhood kids just love me! We play lots of ball. I think they want me to give the ball back but I enjoy having everyone run after me. Since I enjoy running, I will be a great jogging companion, ideal for an active family with young or older children. I live with two other dogs in my foster home and have no problems sharing my food bowl or toys. After play-time, I like to relax on a porch or couch for a nap. One of my favorite things is watching sports at the end of the day. (Go Cubs!) I like rawhides but I’m not a big chewer. I'm trained to stay in a crate when my foster family is not home, and currently they leave me up to 4 hours. I'm very social so probably would not like it if I was left alone much longer than that on a regular basis. I am an all-round playful dog who enjoys running, playing and kids. Since I also like to sniff out rabbits and squirrels, it would be best if my forever home had a fenced yard.

My adoption fee of $ 300 includes: vet exam, rabies, distemper combo & bordetella vaccinations, microchip, deworming, flea & tick prevention, heartworm preventative and spaying.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginger, a Mt. Prospect Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mt. Prospect breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
