Facts about GINGER

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
GINGER was saved from a shelter in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated date of birth of 1 January 2016 and weighs around 11 pounds. We do not know for sure what breed the dogs we save our, we just guess on looks, we ask you to do the same and make up your own assumptions.

GINGER is a sweet, very scared young girl. She is going to need an extra special family who will give her time to build up her confidence and learn to trust. This will need to be a gradual thing and not have someone force themselves on her as this would just scare her more. I feel in the right environment with patience and love and moving at her own pace, it will not take long for her to understand that she is safe and will now be loved forever.

Once settled GINGER will be able to be introduced to all the wonderful things the world has to offer. She would benefit from road trips to exciting places, where she can take in the sights, smells and sounds that the world has to offer. This would not only benefit her with getting exercise but it will also stimulate her mind and senses, which is very important that dogs are allowed to do.

GINGER shares her pen with HAROLD a chi and seems very content with him and I think a family with another dog will definitely help her to transition. She hasn't bothered to come out and join the other small dogs when they come out to play, but I think that the environment is just too scary for her and only when she is in a caring, loving home environment will she be able to totally decompress and allow herself to relax and her true personality come out. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.

GINGER is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.

This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements.

Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.

GINGER WILL BE located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
