Ginger (DOB 2008) came to FCSR as an owner-surrender, sort of… the owner asked her son to take Ginger to the Animal Shelter. A friend of the son stepped in and said let me find a rescue so the friend called FCSR. Ginger has been in a medical foster home since coming to us on 11/9/19. Before coming to us, she was living on a porch by herself, the owner fed her once a day and she had to go to the bathroom on the porch. Poor Ginger was eaten up with fleas and her skin was in horrible condition with unbelievable hair loss. Ginger tested HW negative and has a clean bill of health with the exception of allergies. At one point in her life, Ginger had an ear ablation on her right ear, however, her left ear in good condition. Here is the report from her foster family: “Ginger is a very sweet girl. Considering Ginger has not had a lot of attention in the past, she has trust issues. She does not like to go out into the fenced yard; she likes to be walked on a leash. In the beginning, she was scared of walking on the grass. Ginger will come sit on your lap once she trusts you, which took us about a month. She doesn’t give lots of kisses yet and is still trying to adjust to a new life in a house with a bed. Her personality is starting to come out. She loves to root & rub on the blankets. Ginger’s favorite spot in on the end of the sofa; she needs a place to feel safe. She sleeps on her own bed in our bedroom. Ginger is a work in progress and her hair is starting to grow back. She originally did not have a name, but her coat looks like it is going to be a beautiful light red, so we call her Ginger We got her a couple t-shirts and a sweatshirt to stay warm when it’s cooler. She gets along fine with her foster dog sisters; she hasn’t had any interactions with cats. If you are interested in Ginger, please fill out an adoption application at floridacocker.org.
