District 4 - AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, SC
My name is Annie and I am a 6 year old tricolor female in search of my forever home. Right now I am living with my foster family in Ilinois and I am a sweet girl who loves to run and play outside with my foster Cavalier siblings. I am pretty well house trained but have had a few accidents just before going out as I am sometimes a little hesitant to go through doorways. This has gotten better, with no accidents in over a week. I am in good health, but do have a grade 2/3 heart murmur. It does not give me any problems and I don't need any special medication.
I love to be with my foster siblings so much, that you can almost always find me snuggled up to one of them. If you would like to give me a forever home please fill out the preliminary adoption form and one of our volunteers will contact you.
Please meet Ginger. She is so spunky and full of energy! The vet says that Ginger is right around 1 years old- and still shows a lot of puppy. She is not potty trained yet, but her foster family is working with her, and thinks she is learning very fast. Her foster family is using a combination of crate training and a doggy door.
Ginger is a very social dog, and would do best in a home with another dog(s) to play with. Her favorite game is tug of war- with either her human or dog friends!
She loves everyone, however; there is one thing about her that will require a lot of love and attention. She is extremely timid around men and would probably do better in a household without men. She is fine with women and older children. She is making progress with her foster dad- we just make sure that foster mom is the one that does all of the redirecting that is needed. Over Thanksgiving, our extended family came over and the same thing was experienced. No issues with women, but would cower and piddle if a man tried to pet her, without her approaching him first. Anyway, I very much think it is something that can be overcome with lots of love and patience.
In my opinion, Ginger would do best in a family with older children, and at least one other dog to play with- as she gets lonely. We do not have any cats, so I cannot attest to how she would do with them. I do know she barks at them, when she sees them out the front windows.
Ginger has been a joy to foster, and I would be happy to answer any questions that someone may have about her.
