Hi! My name is Ginger! Some nice lady from Waggin Tails saw my picture at a rural shelter and saved me. Unfortunately, I was sick when they got me and I had to go through heartworm treatment, whatever that is. It wasn’t fun, I can tell you that. I had to keep quiet for six weeks and take medicine. And I couldn’t even go for walks, and I love walks. Now I’m all better and I’ve even been spayed. I’m still overweight, but I’ve already lost three pounds without trying too hard. Approximate weight/age: Ginger’s not that big....but bigger than she should be. She currently weighs about 40 pounds but should be closer to 30 pounds. Maybe slightly larger than an average beagle. We think she may be about 4 years old. Personality: My foster mom says that I am low maintenance and very quiet for a beagle mix. I don’t talk very much, just when I first go in my crate or if another dog gets in my face trying to play. I don’t even bark at the dogs next door like the other foster dogs. I’m housebroken and I get along great with other dogs and cats. I don’t really like to play with other dogs, but I don’t mind if they’re around. Pretty much the same with kids, they’re fine, but I’m not interested in playing with them. My foster mom had three little boys here for Christmas, but as long as they left a little room for me on the couch, I didn’t care. Basically, I like to hang out with my person, especially if that person is sitting on the couch and will rub my belly, and a short walk every day is nice, too. Oooh, and car rides. Car rides are fun, but I usually fall asleep after a few minutes in the car. I don’t need a fenced-in yard, and I walk great on a leash, but I don’t like to do “my business” on a leash so I would need patience in learning that. My only drawbacks are that I don’t like to give up a treat once I have it (though I’m happy to trade for something even yummier), I like to look for any food laying around, and I don’t like the vet poking and prodding at me very much, but I’ve made a lot of improvements in that area. So nothing very serious. I just need someone who can make me feel safe and pampered, maybe a nice quiet household. Is it you? Forever home: Ginger would prefer a quiet household. If you are interested in learning more about her, please feel free to call or email. Contact: Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org Pre-Adoption Application: To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website - http://www.waggintailsdogrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html. Just complete the application and email it back to email@example.com Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175 for adult dogs. Different adoption fees apply for older dogs, small breeds and puppies - $100 for senior dogs (9 years +), $275 for small breed dogs and $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age. Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check www.waggintailsdogrescue.org for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group). Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only. Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog! Ginger is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.
