  Meet Ginger!

Ginger is a 5-year-old red rough Griffon. She has a black mask and natural ears. She is a pretty little girl. Just look at her pictures! She is 10 lbs, spayed and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations.

Ginger is leash trained, crate trained and is used to sleeping in her crate at night and when she is left alone. She spent the first 2 years of her life in a "puppy mill". Following that she lived in a rescue shelter. She initially suffered from some typical mill dog issues: fearful of people, frightening easily, being overly submissive, without confidence and she was not housebroken. Ginger spent the last 18 months in a loving home that worked diligently with her to resolve these issues. She has come a long way from the scared little girl she once was and is reported to be completely housebroken. Though she is somewhat reserved in these new situations around new people, she seems to adjust readily. She has been outgoing with adults, gotten along well with other dogs and cats. She is a happy-go-lucky little princess that is eager to please. As with any typical Brussels Griffon, she is the constant companion to "her" person. Her primary devotion is to one person. Ginger has not shown aggression toward anyone but she is wary of children and tries to avoid them.

Ginger follows her foster mom around and thoroughly enjoys being petted and will stand and dance for treats. In view of Ginger"s personality NBGR will consider placement in a home without children. It would be fitting for her to be the only dog in her new forever home but it is noted that she does get along well with other dogs, She is adaptable but really needs to be in a more "laid back", quiet setting, where she can bond with her new family. While Ginger exhibits nice personality traits, it's expected that she'll need an adjustment time in her new home. But it won't be long before she is in her new humans lap, giving hugs, dancing for treats and being that constant companion following every step of the way.

Ginger is being fostered in Pensacola, FL.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Cristen at emmaresq@yahoo.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
