Ginger had her pin removed yesterday and is now officially up for adoption!! X-rays revealed that everything healed perfectly and she should have no problem running and jumping and playing like a normal doggy. Ginger has spent time at foster care with myself, Laura and Kathleen so you will not find a more balanced dog, agreeable to near any situation. She is an Angel in her crate at night, travels extremely well, loves everything with a heartbeat and learned basic obedience. She is a “5 tool” player in that she’s pretty much good at everything. I want to stress that her fracture has 100% healed and is a memory- it will not impede her in the slightest. SHARE this post with family, friends, loved ones and even strangers so that we can get some adoption interest by the end of the day. Applications for adoption can be filled out at the link below.

Ginger began her life with us as so many do- fighting for her life at the Tehachapi Vet Hospital. A good samaritan had found in the street after she had been hit by a car. She had a spiral fracture to her leg but luckily no internal damage. That type of break is right up Dr.Anderson’s alley and he fixed her up with a very routine pin implant. Her recovery, just like any break, has been difficult because it confines her to a crate for the majority of the day. Her socialization, however, has been multi layered and has even involved her being featured on a national television show called “Home and Family” on the Hallmark Channel. She is a cuddle bug that greatly enjoys human touch but she is also fan of the canine breed and takes solace in the company of her dog pals. Believe it or not, she’s quite the guard dog- don’t let her size fool you. During the filming of her segment on T.V., a security guard wondered into the background, within camera shot, and she let him know that wasn’t ok! And it wasn’t, the director didn’t want anyone in his shot and Ginger didn’t want anyone sneaking up behind us. I’ll say that she is a Dachshund mix for listing purposes but I think a better classification is a good old fashioned American Mutt. Her leg has healed and she’s looking for a family to ease her into the next phase of her life. She’s a terrific lap dog and her leg is completely healed and should pose no worry to her new family. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Ginger, please visit and fill out an adoption form.
