When Ginger came to Rescue, she had several masses that were removed. One of these masses turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma, which is a malignant tumor that tends to recur locally. The tumor was completely excised and the prognosis was good for Ginger. While Ginger was at Riverview, she charmed all the staff and volunteers with her endearing habit of carrying a stuffed animal with her at all times. She was also fond of bellyrubs!
Adopters who were open to adopting a senior were called to meet this adorable girl. When Ginger ran over with her toy, it was love at first sight. Ginger now lives with a 13-year-old Pug who is totally content to let Ginger have all the toys. Ginger’s new family describes her as a luv bug, and they say that she has settled in as if she has always lived there. They have already bought her several new toys and taken her for walks on the beach, which she loves. They will monitor the location of her malignant mass, which will have to be removed if it comes back. Most of all, though, they will give Ginger all the attention and bellyrubs (and toys!) a Golden could ever hope for.
