Ginger is a 2 year old Pit-Mix found as a stray walking the streets of Austin, TX. She was picked up by a friend, but due to his busy work schedule he was not able to spend much time at home and Ginger was therefore confined to the Kennel a lot. We offered to take her a little over a year ago since there is two of us and therefore someone would be home with her more than she would be kenneled. She is playful, loves going to the parks, chasing squirrels, and lounging anywhere you are. She has 3 other brothers in our house, and since she is closest in age to the youngest they are constantly playing. We have little need for boundaries with her so often times we allow her to stay out of the kennel when we are gone. She is house trained and we have watched her on the cameras when we aren't home and all she does is lay a top the back of the couch and watch out the window till we come back. Her favorite place to sleep is right by your head on the pillows. She is a 70 lbs dog that thinks she is 15, so when you wake up in the morning and she gives you morning kisses be prepared to have the air pushed out of you as she plops on top of you. She doesn't really have many toys that she loves, she does like rawhides here and there. What she does love is riding with you in the car. She has gone on several round trips with us and she is a perfect travel companion. She has gone backpacking with us through Possum Kingdom, and she will run off on her own at times chasing a squirrel or rabbit, but then comes running back after you 10 mins later. She is leashed train, but if we are hiking or camping we tend to let her off one. She will never be very far from you, and always comes when you call. She is a fantastic dog, and would be the perfect companion to the adventurous travel type all the way to the at home wine-night type. Even though she has brothers in our house, a single dog home would be best for her. We want her to live in a home where all the love and attention can be hers.
We are a 501c organization that saves pets from high kill shelters, off the streets and also accept pets as owner surrenders so they do not have to step a foot in the shelters. We believe all animals deserve a good life and we strive to give them one! We give them any medical attention they may need, including spay/neuters, a microchip and vaccinations and find them a forever home.
