Ginger’s owners divorced and were moving into apartments that did not allow big dogs. They had bought Ginger as a puppy eight years earlier and had bred her several times. Her owners described Ginger as a wonderful and loving girl. Ginger had previously lived mainly in the backyard, coming into the garage at nighttime or during thunderstorms, but her owners recognized that Ginger would thrive with a new family that did not mind having a large dog in the house.
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.

What a wonderful outcome for such a sweet girl. Please thank her new family for all of us and ask them to join us here so we can be part of her family too.
