Hi! I'm Gingersnap! I'm a two-year-old beagle-terrier mix, and I love everyone - dogs, cats, and YOU, if you'll let me!
The only thing I don't love is being by myself. I would do best in a home where my people are home most of the day and can give me the attention and little bit of exercise that I need. I can be a bit 'vocal' when left alone, so I probably wouldn't be a great neighbor to anyone living with shared wall space.
But do you know what helps me when I'm alone? Another dog friend! I would LOVE another, young dog in my family to play with me and give me comfort when you are gone. At two years old, I still have some puppy energy and like to play with my foster brother, but I mellow out pretty quickly after a good walk or play. When I'm worn out, I'm an excellent snuggler, and at around 40 pounds, I'm the perfect size for it!
I love my people so much that I can be a little protective when someone new shows up. So my new family would have to understand that I need a minute or so to recognize new people as new friends.
I'm a smart girl, too. I know how to sit on command, and would certainly learn a lot more if you'd teach me! Oh and have you seen my ears?! I'm not one to brag, but other people have told me that I'm adorable. They say I have a pretty great smile.
I do have a prescription that I need once a day, but it's affordable and totally worth it considering all of the love, snuggles, and kisses you'll get in return for inviting me into your family.
