Hi there everybody, my name is Ginger but the humans here like to call me Ginger Snap 🙂 Ive also heard them say that I am a princess with the heart of a puppy, I like the sound of that. I made my way to Dogtown long ago when I was found as a stray. My family could never be found and that is why I am now in need of a new home.

Let me tell you more about me. I love cuddles and I will not pass up the opportunity to roll onto my back so that I can cash in on tummy tickles. I love attention, I am a very affectionate girl. I also love going out for walks and hikes. I walk really nicely on lead so we can go anywhere your heart desires. I also really enjoy food and treats which makes training really easy 🙂 I’m a very friendly girl and I generally make friends with any human I meet. place to be, my safe place where the monster cannot get to me.

I am a social girl and although I can be a bit bossy, I get along with most dogs. I must however admit that I am not a fan of cats and I just don’t see a future for me and any feline, so my perfect home would be cat-free please 🙂 I am gentle enough to be around kids so that is no problem.

There is on thing that I must tell you about myself and that is the one thing that I think has caused me to lose out on so many homes. I am scared of thunder, well…. it’s actually more that I am terrified of thunder. I try to get away from it when it happens so I need a very secure home where I can’t get out if I do get scared 🙁 I take comfort in people so if somebody is home during the day and they can keep me safe and calm, then I can brave the storm (literally)… but I get really scared when the clouds roll in and I’m alone, so my perfect family would work from home or have a flexible schedule so that they can help me and keep me safe when the summer storms start. I just want to be held and feel safe, is that too much to ask for a princess Ginger snap like me?

Please come and meet me, my photos don’t do me justice…. You have to see me in person to understand how special I am 🙂
