Facts about Brigid

  • Breed: Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10592725

This estimated 3 year old female Boxer Pit mix was a stray in San Bernadino who ended up at high-kill Devore animal shelter. (our vet thinks she is closer to 1 year old based on her teeth.) She was put on the euthanasia list when she came down with kennel cough, so we pulled her... back in September! She was not spayed due to her upper respiratory infection and when she arrived we quickly saw she was ... SURPRISE!!! Pregnant. VERY! After giving birth she ended up with a very serious infection which required separating her from pups so she could get the veterinary care she needed. This was likely traumatic for her and may explain some of her separation anxiety and excited/reactive behavior around other dogs.

We are eager to find Brigid a wonderful home to call her own. She has been through a lot so she will need a patient loving and supportive family. Here is what we know about Brigid: She is a happy, playful cuddle bug. She loves attention and people and wants to be with her people all the time. She is absolutely wonderful with children big and small. She can do well with dogs in a pack after proper introduction but takes time to get comfortable, and likely multiple introductions. She does not exhibit food aggression or resource guarding with people or dogs. She gets excited on a leash when she sees other dogs -- we have found that a gentle leader allows her to be managed. She had pretty bad separation anxiety which has improved considerably. With "practice" she can now be crated safely for up to 8 hours, huge progress! She happily sleeps on a dog bed out of crate near people through the night Absolutely wonderful snuggler. Still needs basic obedience training to improve basic commands, leash walking, etc.  She is house-trained

Adoption Info: Brigid's adoption fee of $350 includes her spay, all vaccinations (Rabies, DPPV, Bordetella) deworming, microchipping and transport from California to Seattle. Brigid's actual veterinary costs have far exceeded her adoption fee and any donations to her care are greatly appreciated. 

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: www.gingerspetrescue.org/events

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to ginger@gingerspetrescue.org 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.
