Ginny's Info...

Ginny's Story...
Ginny is a sweetheart senior shepherd mix... and a smart cookie, too! We're hoping you have a big heart to see past Ginny's senior age (we aren't sure of her age, only that she's a senior) and see what a gem she is for yourself when you meet her! She's a quiet girl (not a barker at all), about 50 lbs., walks very well on a leash, will sit when asked and shake paws with you...she aims to please. She is nicely housetrained, too. She loves to go for car rides or long, leisurely walks- she won't pull you along, so she's easy to handle. She is curious about cats and will generally do well with other gentle natured dogs one-on-one, always wagging her tail when she sees another dog during her walks.

Her story is a sad one, and one we see too often: she was abandoned in a house with other another dog after their owner died, leaving them to fend for themselves. Luckily the other dog found a sweet Ginny needs to find her own place to call home to spend her remaining years. Will it be with you?

If you can open your heart to Ginny, please fill out an application for her at You won't be sorry you did this for a deserving senior.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginny, a Newport Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Newport, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Newport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Newport already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Newport breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Newport paves the way for another one to be saved.
