Ginger is a beautiful red headed mother who, along with her 7 week old puppy (Pugsley), was dumped in a shelter a few weeks ago. When Ginger was turned over to the shelter she was turned over non-groomed and a little over weight, which will drop as she is on a special diet and is getting daily walks with other rescues.
Why an 8 year old dog was allowed to breed or was not fixed prior to this, is anyone's guess, but thankfully, she came out of it well and so did her cute little guy. Ginger is a beautiful sweet little girl who wants to love and be loved by anyone.
Ginger has a sweet demeanor and loving attitude. She is a little shaky of people at first but once she gets to know you and relaxes around you, she will smother you with kisses if she gets the chance. She needs and deserves a good home, where she could be a lap dog but could also get some well needed exercise in a large yard and/or on frequent walks with her new family (once she is settled in, of course).
She is playful and loving and would do well with a partner or by herself.
She would do well with children 8 years old and up who has dachshund experience.
Ginger, being longhaired will need to be groomed on a regular basis, otherwise things can get caught in her coat and cause matting, which can be painful for the her if not properly taken care of.
Most dogs especially older ones are housetrained, like these little guys are, they can use a doggy door. However, it should be reminded that there will be few accidents in the beginning as all of the dogs are nervous and uncomfortable in new surroundings, until they get accustom to their new home. With proper discipline from the beginning, and corrective techniques, this behavior should stop within a few weeks.
The tax deductable adoption fees for her has not been set yet.
Ginger has been spayed and is now ready for her new forever home.
