11/22/14 It is official. Ginger was adopted today! She has a wonderful new home and will be with her new sister Trixie.
11/16/14 Ginger's adoption status has changed to adoption pending. She will be going to her new home on Saturday, 11/22/14.
UPDATE 9/25/14 It is amazing how the combination of acupuncture, chiropractic, and laser treatments have helped Ginger. She gets around much better now. Prior to treatment, she was falling over constantly because her back legs were so weak. She is not 100% and we don’t expect that she ever will be. But her quality of life is much better. She does great taking walks with me around the pastures. We walk about 20 minutes now. Before the treatments, she wouldn't even make it halfway without falling down so much that I would have to carry her back. She is able to hold herself up better when going potty too. The veterinarian even commented on how much better she was standing. Since I see her every day I don’t notice some of things that other people notice who only see her every so often. One of the things that I have noticed is how she is able to curl up like a normal dog. Before her legs would be straight out no matter how she was laying down.
9/12/2014: We are placing a hold on Ginger due to a back injury requiring visits for treatment three times a week.
UPDATE 6/18/14 Ginger is available for adoption. Do not let her age fool you. She is a very active little girl. We did get a dental done on her this week. Ginger is very sweet and loving girl. She will follow you around your home or yard. She loves attention. She enjoys walking on a leash. Ginger gets along well with other pets. She is crate trained and housebroken.
5/29/14 Ginger is a 12 year old sheltie who will be coming into the rescue with in a week. She is very sweet girl who needs a foster home or a permanent home to live. Her owner is surrendering her to the rescue because he is moving and he can not take her with him. She is up to date on her shots and spayed. We will be getting her micro chipped as soon as she comes into the rescue. Ginger gets along with other dogs and she loves children. She does have difficulty going up and down steps. She is house broken and does not show aggression towards food. If you are interest in fostering or adopting Ginger please contact us. More info and an update will be posted once she gets into the rescue.
If you would like to donate funds to help Ginger or one of our other forever fosters, you can donate via paypal on our donation page.
* We do not permit adoptions of shelties as gifts. If you would like to give one as a gift you can contact us for advice on how to handle the situation.
Please note that we do NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10. Herding dogs, especially shelties, tend to chase whatever/whoever is running & they often will nip at the back of legs in their attempt to gather everyone into a neat, manageable area.
If you cannot adopt but would like to make a donation or to sponsor one of our forever fosters, seniors or special needs dogs, please email Aneita.
