Ginger is about 3 years old and weighs about 12 pounds. She is a very sweet, quiet, well behaved dog. She is good with both dogs and cats. She is potty trained and just looking for a loving home. We did get a DNA on her and it says she is a Bichon / Cocker Spaniel, hmmmm, what do you think?This is a very long but very detailed description from the foster mom. ......
It is amazing to watch her grow into herself. The first 3-4 weeks it was something new every day of her being a little less scared of everything and a little more comfortable being a dog. By now, however we seriously doubt she is genetically a dog, because she is hilarious and cracks us up with mannerisms that are not of her kind.
- In the park when she we just start out on the walk and she is all happy, she will prance the first half mile with head high like a prize-horse, lifting her legs real high, ears and butt flying all over the place.
- She does not know how to cuddle, but instead will push herself against my calves and then rub her back on my legs, eventually flipping onto her back, and then back up again and all over like a cat
- and when she is excited because it's time for a walk or a treat, she will hop around the living room like a bunny.
In total she is a perfect dog, her looks are adorable, her antics hilarious once she comes out of her shell, and to date she has not done a SINGLE thing wrong (every foster dog usually has one annoying thing they do, but no her). Definitely never an accident in the house, she does not chew on anything, except her own toys, she does not try to get into the trash or take food that is not given to her, and she does not bark at anything or everything passing by the door. On the contrary, the only time she barks is when she notices we are finally getting ready for walks. Essentially, she just gets so excited, the energy has to come out of her body, and that's when she starts hopping and barking until she is leashed and ready to go.
She will need an adopter who has the patience to let her come out of her shell even if it takes a few weeks, but she does not have a mean or aggressive attitude in her at all, so she will still let them pet and hold her, just not be herself for the first weeks.
If an adopter is looking for a cuddly little dog who sleeps with them, they will be disappointed as Ginger loves being pet, but when she is done will get up and lie in a spot of her choosing rather than on or next to her person. But if someone appreciates a more independent dog who is entertaining and loving, she is the perfect match.
