Hi, My name is Ginger!
I am 6 months old, very friendly and looking for a home where people have more time or space to play with me.?I am very outgoing, playful and friendly. With my medium size and long legs, I’d love to find a home where I can play fetch in my own yard. Maybe find somebody with time to take me to the park and play regularly.?Most of all, I want to be a part of your daily routine. Right now, I spend a part of my day in a cage or in a special part of the house when people aren’t around. ?My current family just does not have enough time for a playful pup like me and they want me to be able to get more freedom and play time. I think that is pretty thoughtful of them!
You know, everybody tries to guess my roots – it’s a mystery! ?Some think that I have a bit of a Beagle look, but a Labrador sort of personality. ?That sounds like a fun combination to me! ?I’m never going to be a huge dog – just the right size to share your couch, warm your feet, or sit next to the kids on the back seat of the car on family trips! ?Once I get a little older, and past my current need for chew toys and excitement, I will make a pretty great family dog or companion. At 6 months old, I really want to be involved in family activity, rather than waiting for “puppy time”. ?I won’t be a puppy forever and I want to make the most of it. ?Adopt me and we’ll have a great time together!
If you would like to offer me a home, please fill out an adoption application here: https://petprosservices.com/adopt/. There is a $100 adoption/rehoming fee, and I will bring all my dog supplies along with me.

Ginger has a very sweet personality. She is loving and playful. She can be alone for extended periods but she would prefer to be “part of the action” and around people or outside, playing. The best personality trait to describe her would be “outgoing” – friendly and sociable.
Ginger’s Current Home Environment
Ginger is confined to one level of the house and spends the majority of time in her cage, unfortunately. She is let out to “do her business” (on a leash) and to play for 1-2 hour periods, 3-4 times per day. She really deserves to have more freedom than we can provide for her. Our wish for her is a nice, fenced-in yard that she can spend a lot of time exploring. She loves to be outside.
Ginger’s Current Family:
Our family has 3 people: Dad (Chris), Mom (Andria) and Elizabeth (daughter); Chris owns 2 small businesses that are operated from home; Mom is a domestic engineer and dog entertainer/walker. Elizabeth is a full-time 6th grader and aspiring actress, song-writer, YouTuber and entrepreneur.
Ginger’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Ginger loves to play ball. We use a tennis ball and she loves to chase it, bring it back and play tug. We are struggling with toys right now because she now has her “big girl” teeth and they tend to make short work of most toys. She has a Kong that we like to fill with peanut putter, carrots and treats. She also likes rawhides – although we try to limit how often she has them, based on our Vet’s recommendations.
Cute Ginger Story:
We have taken Ginger through some basic Puppy Training and she responds well to commands, especially when food is involved! She has learned the basic commands of sit, stay, leave it, and come and she knows how to put up her paw and shake. When we play ball, my daughter and I will roll a tennis ball between us. Ginger will chew on another toy, acting like she is not interested in us but, at the same time, slowly position herself in between us. When the ball gets just close enough to her, she will pounce on it and run off – sporting her proudest little “look at what I did!” strut. 🙂
Why is Ginger Being Rehomed?
We simply do not have enough time to give her the freedom she deserves. We are running 2 businesses from our home and we are building a new house – there is a lot going on and we can’t spend enough time with her. Also, when we got her from the humane society, they told us she was part terrier and part lab. We are not sure what she is but we think she definitely has some sort of hound dog in her pedigree. She has grown to about 40 pounds and probably won’t get much, if any bigger, BUT Mom and Elizabeth are having trouble handling her on walks. She is really a sweet dog but we just have to admit that we cannot give her the full and active life we think she deserves.
Ginger’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
A family with kids or with another dog would probably be a good fit. Since Ginger is so social, she likes to keep busy. If she had a fenced in yard where she could run around and sniff everything to her heart’s content, we think she would be really happy. Our wish is for her to go to a family that can provide her with more activity and more outside time than we can. She is truly lovable and we just want her to have a home where she is safe, loved and well cared for.
We feel very selfish. We wish we could keep her but we simply cannot manage our time in a way that is fair to her. We know that she is a very loving companion and we really want her to have a long and very happy life.
