This petite red beauty is Ginger. She has had a tough go of things in her life so far but hoping things can change for the better soon.
Ginger was born on October 8, 2016. She is a happy, silly puppy that loves to play with her people and other dogs. Does fine around cats and is fascinated with kittens. Ginger is also crate trained and walks well on a leash.
Her former family did not realize but Ginger has been in pain all her life because she has Ununited Anconeal Process, which is a fancy way to say her elbows hurt! The elbow growth plates did not grow together like they should have. This will require a surgery to relieve her pain. Ginger will never be a dog that can go on long runs but she will be able to play and take walks.
Ginger also has struvite crystals in her urine, which can also be painful when left untreated. Prescription food will take care of this but she has to be on this food the rest of her life.
Despite all these things Ginger is a joy to be around and the perfect size little girl to snuggle with.
Surgery will be scheduled after we visit the specialist on July 31st. From what we understand this will be a costly surgery so if you would like to contribute to her care please consider donating to BDR and let us know it is for Ginger.
The food she is required to be on is also costly for a rescue, so any donations will help with this as well.
We will post updates on Ginger so check back on her bio or our Facebook page.
