The first thing that strikes you about this beautiful orange and white girl is her big sad eyes that apparantly have seen a lot of pain and mistreatment.
Ginger was emaciated when she was brought to a Middle Georgia shelter with two other pointers who were also in bad shape. She soon found herself alone when her buddies left her, but a concerned shelter worker contacted PRO, and she is now being fostered with a family in Warner Robins.
Ginger is very shy around people and is just now learning to trust. She is slowly coming out of her shell and will now venture up to her foster mom or dad for petting or a cookie. However she still has a way to go for at any given time she will go back into her shell. (Her foster dad sometimes calls her “Turtle.”) In spite of what she has been through, Ginger is learning to be happy again and she will greet you in the morning with a wagging tail and a song! She loves to run in the field and point and chase bird, butterflies and squirrels. She gets along well with other dogs. She has a very strong pointing instinct, but she has not been field-tested.
She is an intelligent girl who seems to learn quickly. She is housebroken and crate-trained though she has recently taken to sleeping outside her crate next to her foster parents’ bed. She does, however, absolutely positively hates baths!
Right now Ginger needs a family who is patient and give her a lot of love.
