2 The Rescue: Let's get Ginger adopted!

She's waiting to meet you at the Guilford County Animal Shelter

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Ginger is a beautiful 8-year-old, 65 pounds, spayed female German Shepherd Mix. She came to the Guilford County Animal Shelter as a stray back on May 31, 2020. 

During her time at the shelter, the staff has seen her blossom into a sweet and intelligent dog. She loves attention and will even crawl right up into your lap, thinking she's a small lap dog! She knows how to sit and down command and is eager to learn more commands in her new home. 

Ginger also really enjoys busy boxes that keep her mind active. She would do well in a home that is looking for an active and very social dog who will thrive with training and activities to stimulate both her body and her mind. She may thrive best in a home with no other dogs where she is the sole focus of her family's attention. 

She is heartworm positive. This is a curable condition, and she cannot transmit it to other animals. She is eligible for the Have-A-Heart program, which includes a 30% off voucher for heartworm treatment.
