About Ginger:
Loving, faithful, and sweet are just some of the ways my foster home described me. I like all sorts of folks. I got along well with both children and other dogs in my foster home.  I am looking for a family that will give me plenty of opportunities to run and play.  You will be pleased to know that I am house-trained and know some basic commands.  However, the good folks at Dakin say that I will benefit and enjoy training classes.
