Ginger 230961 - 5

Dog ID:  230961    Sex:  Female    Age:  6 Year old

Hello everyone! My name is Ginger, and I am a very sweet 6-year-old, 80 pound, Golden Retriever.

The first thing you need to know about me is that I am very skittish. I’m afraid of about everything and everyone. You see, I lived a secluded life before coming to TGRR. This means I have ‘quirks’ that will probably be around forever, so my adopter needs to be a patient and understanding person and realize this about me.

Slowly and surely my foster family is introducing me to the world. I love to go for walks with them in the neighborhood. I get along fine with other mellow dogs, but I don’t like hyper dogs. An easy-going confident dog who can teach me the ropes (but isn’t too demanding of me) is a must in my forever home! I love to be petted. I enjoy car rides, I’m just a bit anxious about getting in the car. I’m not destructive in the house, but I do have an affection for eating socks, oops – what can I say? There’s not one aggressive hair on my body. Foster mom thinks I will make a wonderful companion for someone who is home a lot (retired or works from home) and can spend a lot of time with me and help me learn how great it is to be a Golden Retriever! I prefer a home with no kids, cause noisy bouncy kids would make be nervous. I haven’t met any cats yet, so I don’t know what I think of them. I’m such a gentle girl though, I think I would be good with them.

My foster family wants you to know that although I’m skittish, that I gain a little more confidence each day and they can’t wait to see me blossom into a wonderful house pet with my forever family. Do you have some time to spare and a furry sibling to show me the ropes? If so, get your adoption application in, I’d love to meet you!
