Hello, I'm Ginger and I'm a pretty, petite, spayed female (mostly) Dalmatian. I was picked up as a stray but I think I am about 6 years old. I weigh 40 pounds, a little on the slim side but I only need to put on a couple of pounds, which shouldn't be a problem because I'm a very enthusiastic eater. My foster mom says that I am a super quiet girl, she hasn't ever heard me bark. I get along great with the two dog sisters at my foster home and am a bit shy but friendly with everyone - people and pup - who I meet. I am doing great with my crate and housetraining, and I take treats very nicely, even when in a big group of pups. I love to go on our daily walks, and I do pretty well on lead, although if I spot a squirrel or bird, I'd love to chase them! I am up-to-date on my rabies and distemper vaccines, and I've been wormed. I am heartworm negative and on monthly preventative. I haven't spent much time in a house but I like my crate and settle right down when I'm in there. My housetraining is coming along really well, although I do definitely need my crate to help me with that. I'm a good girl in the house, but I'm still working on my manners in terms of checking out the interesting stuff on counters and tabletops, so I should be crated when home alone. I'm also learning that these things called 'toys' are really fun! It seems like I might like to try to escape if there are gaps in a fence, so it would need to be small-dog secure for a petite little girl like me. If you don't have a fenced yard, a couple of daily walks and leashed potty breaks would suit me very well. I hope you think I'm the girl for you! 1/29/2010
